Hannah von Bredow : Bismarcks furchtlose Enkelin gegen Hitler / Reiner Möckelmann

Publication | Library Call Number: DD247.B675 M63 2018

"Millions of Germans cheered Hitler, and in the nobility he found many willing helpers. But Hannah von Bredow, nee Grafin von Bismarck-Schonhausen, was a convinced opponent of the National Socialists. Through her brothers Gottfried and Otto, both faithful to the 1940s, she had excellent contacts with the Nazi leadership, and yet preserved her spiritual independence: She did not doubt for a moment that the "disgust of Hitler" established a state of injustice. Already in 1930 she wrote "If he becomes a dictator, Germany becomes a madhouse." Hannah von Bredow was active in the resistance: as a member of the Confessing Church, girlfriend of upheavals and helper of the persecuted. She wrote thousands of journal entries and "unheard of letters mocking every description" - as the Gestapo recorded. For the first time Reiner Mockelmann devotes himself to the previously unpublished estate and portrays this extraordinary and upright woman." --Translated from back cover of jacket
