Six years after Norbert's death in 1993, his son Stephan, a journalist, discovered the interviews among his father's papers and set out to re-interview the children, now senior citizens.

I had always wondered what happened to the children of the Nazi leaders that survived the Allied occupation. And if you've been wondering the same thing, then this is the book for you. It's composed of multiple interviews, some of which were taken by Norbert Lebert in 1959 and then followed up on by his son Stephan years later. The interviews are eye opening and tragic at the same time. In some we see their struggle between loving their father and at the same time coming to grips with crimes committed by the Third Reich. Highly recommended.

Found this book interesting. A small journey into psychology. Seeing how various Nazi related children have dealt through their lives with the legacy offered by their fathers. Understanding how their fathers managed to juggle their regime duties and family duties. Also found it interesting to note the different styles of coping between sons and daughters.

An addition to the subject of evil and how the subsequent generations handle such in their families.

This book is a must read for those interested in the Nazi leaders. I found some of these children's views most disturbing, especially the refusal to face the truth of what their fathers did (with a few exceptions). What is amazing is the pity party some have telling of the awful prison/camps they were submitted to after the war. Their post war treatment cannot compare to those who suffered in the death camps under the Nazis. The author is very objective in his opinions and observations. I highly recommend this book for those interested in this subject.
excellent book
well written
gives a side of the story one does not often consider.
as well it was quite sad
