Publisher's Summary

Göring. Hess. Mengele. Dönitz. Names that conjure up dark memories of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. They were the architects of the Third Reich. And they were fathers. Gerald Posner convinced 11 sons and daughters of Hitler's inner circle to break their silence.
This second generation of perpetrators in Hitler's Children struggle with their Third Reich inheritance. In grappling with memories of good and loving fathers who were later charged with war crimes, these heirs to the Nazi legacy add a fresh and important perspective to understanding the complexity of what historian, Hannah Arendt, dubbed "the banality of evil".
Hitler's Children is much more, however, than a series of startling family interviews. It is also a spellbinding insider's look at some of the men whose names have become synonymous with terror. This is a classic book about the second generation of Nazi perpetrators (the only one ever to have family interviews with Hess, Mengele, Donitz, and Göring.) No other book author or documentarian ever got those children to talk again. And Norman Frank, the eldest son of war criminal Hans Frank, also never spoke to anyone but Posner.

Couldn’t put it down!

Just flew through this book. The narrator was so good that I never noticed him. Each person’s story was very interesting. Amazing how many of these evil men never showed remorse. I would highly recommend this book if you like history and consider yourself a student of human beings.

very good

an interesting approach to understanding the legacy of these monstrous men from the perspective of these children. it is disturbing how great many of the nazis were as fathers. it is understandable why the children have struggled with their identities but there are such differing outcomes for this struggle. highly recommended
