'My Father's Keeper: Children of Nazi Leaders - An Intimate History of Damage and Denial', follows the lives of children left the unenviable legacy of being born to ‘war criminals’, senior members of the Third Reich. With a background to post war life under the Allies and the reflective attitudes of modern Germany
