Summary
"In August 1944, Hans Georg Klamroth was tried and 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. 'I stare at this man with the lifeless expression. I don't know him ... But I can see myself in him - his eyes are my eyes, I know that I look like him ... I wouldn't be me, without him.'" "In My Father's Country, Bruhns tells of her search for her father. Returning to Halberstadt in Northern Germany, where her ancestors, the Klamroth family, lived and worked for generations, she retraces the story from Kaiser Wilhelm to the end of the Second World War, discovering old photographs, letters and diaries, which she uses to piece together a unique and unforgettable family epic." "Engaging with her family on both an emotional and political level, My Father's Country is a memoir that is also a remarkable work of history, powerfully told and deeply moving."--BOOK JACKET
