Abstract:

"The ambitious, seductive and macabre story of the 'unofficial' First Lady of the Third Reich, Magda Goebells [sic]. On May 1, 1945, after Adolf Hitler commits suicide, Magda murders six of her seven children and sits down to play solitaire in the Fuhrerbunker, as she waits for her husband, Josef, to return so they can execute themselves in the Reich Chancellery gardens. Magda goes on a retrospective quest for redemption, examining her loving relationship with her Jewish stepfather, Richard Friedlander and her first love, Chaim Arlosoroff, a Zionist leader. She is forced to confront her indefinable desire for 'more'--which inevitably leads to the woman she had become--a banality of ambition and evil. Her obsession with her public image as the paragon of German womanhood has blinded her to the humanity of others, including her own. It was a life that ran a parallel course with the rise and fall of Nazi Germany"--Back cover.
