Abstract:

In August, 1944, Major Hans Georg Klamroth was tried and executed for treason for his part in the July plot against Hitler. Wibke Bruhns, his youngest daughter, was six years old. Decades later, watching a documentary, she saw images of her father on-screen. "I stare at this man with the empty face. I don't know him. But I can see myself in him ... I know I resemble him. I know I wouldn't be here without him. And what do I know about him? Nothing at all." How could her patriotic family succumb to Nazi sympathies? And what made her father finally renounce Hitler? With letters and diaries documenting the story of her family, from the time of Kaiser Wilhelm to the end of the Second World War, she unravels her family's history-- the experience of being German in the last century.--From publisher description.
