In Hitler\'s Shadow

In the wake of Germany’s unconditional surrender in May 1945 and Japan’s subsequent surrender later that July, across the world the Allied press proclaimed ‘Victory War is Over’! The truth for many Germans, particularly girls of the former Bund Deutscher Madel, was that a new war was just beginning.

In Hitler's Shadow conveys the hopes, the horrors and the aftermath of the Second World War in the form of eye witness testimonies, diary entries and interviews. Through the eyes of the BDM girls, it recounts the struggle to rebuild lives destroyed by years of war, and how a country came to terms with terrible war crimes committed in its name. The result is powerful, sad, harrowing, humorous and shocking. In the realms of the study of female Hitler Youth organisations in Nazi Germany, In Hitler's Shadow has no equal.
