Elliott & Thompson is delighted to announce publication of Hitler’s Forgotten Children: My Life Inside the Lebensborn by Ingrid von Oelhafen and Tim Tate.
Hitler's Forgotten Children is a powerful first-person account from a child of the Lebensborn: the Nazis’ programme to create an Aryan master race. In 1942, a baby girl from Sauerbrunn in Yugoslavia, was declared an ‘Aryan’ and removed from her mother. Her true identity was erased and it would take years to uncover her past. Written with insight and compassion, this is a compelling meditation on the personal legacy of Hitler’s vision, of Germany’s brutal past and of a divided Europe that for many years struggled to come to terms with its own history.
This morning (the 19th May), Ingrid appeared on BBC Breakfast, and she will be on BBC Radio 4 Midweek tomorrow (the 20th May) to talk about the book and her remarkable story.
Look out for Hitler’s Forgotten Children in the national media in the coming weeks!
