Stolen lives

stolen childrenHitler’s Forgotten Children” by Ingrid Von Oelhafen is an account of the Lebensraum program, in which children were taken from their homes and “Germanized” by adopted Nazi families.  Nazi officials in occupied territories actively sought children with ‘desirable racial traits’.   These children were abducted and given new names and falsified family histories.   Author Von Oelhafen, who was one of these children, shares her discovery of her true origins.   Part history, part memoir, von Oelhafen ”brings a personal dimension” to history.
