9780099478775: My Father's Country

In August 1944, Hans Georg Klamroth was executed for his part in the 20 July plot to assassinate Hitler. Wibke Bruhns, his youngest daughter, was six years old at the time. Decades later, watching a documentary about the events of 20 July, images of her father in the Third Reich People's Court appeared on the screen - and she realises she never knew him.

In My Father's Country, Bruhns tells of her search for her father. Returning to her ancestral home in Halberstadt, Northern Germany, she retraces her family's story from Kaiser Wilhelm to the end of World War Two, discovering old photographs, letters and diaries, which she uses to piece together a unique and unforgettable family epic.

Review:

"What an extraordinary story. I was spellbound... In the final stages, as the terrible finale approaches, I was almost too moved and appalled to go on reading - but also too moved and appalled to stop... A treasure. Michael Frayn" ( .)

"' Utterly moving and sincere.'" (Philip Oltermann Times)

" Compassionate... Fascinating" ( Express)

" Elegant and lovingly written... A compulsive read... A multilayered and moving tale of deceit and betrayal" ( Financial Times Magazine)

Book Description:

The story of a German family from the late nineteenth century through WWI to WWII and after. A huge bestseller in Germany, it offers extraordinarily moving and riveting insight into the experience of being German in the last century.
