My Father’s Keeper By: Stephan and Norbert Lebert

Book Description
In 1959 the German journalist Norbert Lebert conducted extensive interviews with the sons and daughters of prominent Nazis: Hess, Bormann, Göring, and Himmler; Baldur von Schirach, creator of the Hitler Youth; and Hans Frank, governor of Poland. Then at the beginning of their adult lives, Lebert's subjects were the bearers of notorious names that made them outcasts to some, symbols of a lost glory to others.

Forty years later, Lebert's son Stephan-also a journalist-tracked down these same men and women to find out what had become of them, how they remembered their fathers, and what effect the names they carried had on the paths they had taken. Lebert's account of his conversations, juxtaposed with his father's postwar interviews, gives us an extraordinary and unflinching look at how these individuals have coped with a horrifying heritage.

The stories that emerge are fascinating, surprising, and often disturbing: The young man who refuses military service and is granted conscientious objector status on the grounds that his father is imprisoned by the state--as a Nazi war criminal. The boy who begins his education learning the principles of fascism, finishes it at a Catholic boarding school, and later becomes a priest and a missionary to Africa. The woman who was systematically refused work because she wouldn't use an alias, but who now lives in the suburbs under her husband's name and keeps secret contacts with other nostalgic Nazis. The journalist who writes a scathing magazine article reviling the father responsible for two million deaths, and is greeted with a barrage of letters from outraged Germans--whatever your father may have done, the letters argue, fathers must always be honored.

My Father's Keeper is a remarkable and illuminating addition to our knowledge of the Nazi past and of how this past continues to haunt the present. And it offers a chilling perspective on the way children live with the legacy of their parents' deeds. 20 B/W photos.

Legacy of Silence: Encounters With Children of the Third Reich
by Dan Bar-On ,Dan Baron

From Library Journal
Legacy of Silence is a moving and upsetting document about family life in the Third Reich and its repercussions in contemporary Germany. Between August 1985 and October 1987, Israeli psychologist Bar-On traveled to Germany on four occasions to speak with men and women whose fathers had served in the Nazi elite. His book records 13 from over 50 such meetings. The voice of the author remains audible throughout the text, questioning, probing, commenting, and ever pointing out ambivalences.

Born Guilty: Children of Nazi Families
by Jean Steinberg (Editor), Peter Sichrovsky (Editor)

From Library Journal
Published last year in Germany, this became an immediate sensation. The book documents 14 interviews by Sichrovsky with children (and grandchildren) of Nazi war criminals. Because the perpetrators have shrouded their past in silence, vaguenesses, and lies, their descendants are cut off from any kind of productive dialogue with their parents. The interviews reveal the struggles of a generation caught between fascist family ideals and the realities of a new society committed to democracy. The spontaneous and expressive language of the original comes through very well in the translation.

It's a very interesting topic,

Wade

Here is a 1937 picture of Alfred Rosenberg with his daughter Irene (born 1930). She looks so cute:

I wonder if anyone has information about Reinhard Heydrich's wife and children _ what happened to them after the War, are they still alive, and if so, what sort of lives do they live?

Here's some information on the Heydrich family:

'Heydrich had four children: Klaus, born in 1933; Heider, born in 1934; Silke, born in 1939; and Marte, born shortly after her father's death in 1942. In 1943, Klaus lost his life in a traffic accident. In 1944, Lina Heydrich had Heider removed from the Hitler Youth out of fear that he may meet the same fate as his father. After the war, Lina moved to the island of Fehmarn, located in the Baltic sea, where she operated a hotel. She died in the late 1970's.

Also try to have a search on this forum. There's a lot of information about the Heydrich family.

Not quite right. Lina removed Heider from the Hitler Youth in protest at the youngster being left to roam the streets of Prague alone after the HJ meetings finished at 7.30pm. She had the support of Frau Stahlecker whose young son returned home after 11pm one night. Lina wrote to the RFSS explaining her motives and he also supported her actions.
Lina died in 1985 not the 1970s.

In 1930, Heydrich let another woman pregnant.

Result: a daughter.
