The bombs were falling and the smoke rising from the concentration camps, but all Hitler's daughter knew was the world of lessons with Fraulein Gelber and the hedgehogs she rescued from the cold.
Was it just a story or did Hitler's daughter really exist? And If you were Hitler's daughter, would all the horror that occurred be your fault, too? Do things that happened a long time ago still matter?

Excellent read for all ages
I literally devoured this book in one day. I was so drawn into the story. Take some rural kids waiting at a bus stop and have a game for the wet weather of telling a story. This is of the disputed daughter of Hitler and all the descriptions literally take you there. Certainly worth a read.
