I am going to nominate Anna Segher's novel The Seventh Cross. The novel was originally published in German in 1942. It was made into a film in the 40s and MGM pulled quite a few large publicity stunts for its release. From the New Yorker Recommends column:

Quote:
Set in Germany in the course of a week in October, 1936, “The Seventh Cross” follows the heart-pounding escape of seven political prisoners from the fictional concentration camp Westhofen, not far from Mainz and Frankfurt... The escapees might seek out their families and friends, but they risk being turned in by unknown Gestapo informers, or, worse, having their loved ones arrested and sent to camps themselves. George Heisler, the novel’s protagonist, finds that all the people in his former life have “been turned into a network of living traps.”
I don't know if this will get any traction or not as it is a little pricey, but maybe it will interest others as much as it does me.
