Flesh and Blood
Fatherland, in German ‘Vaterland', is the land of ancestors. The leaders of the Third Reich expected to leave their children a rich legacy: a prosperous empire, ancestral estates, wealth and family names inspiring reverence. But they left them a scorched desert, poverty, shame, and dreadful surnames. Sons, daughters, and grandchildren had to spend their lives trying to figure out how to dispose of this inheritance. And how to treat their parents - to live in their shadow or to step out of it.
