Overview

UNDER THE SS SHADOW is the true story of Traugott Vogel, a Hitler Youth, an SS major's son, who ran for his life in war-torn Europe. He saw his father murdered by Austrian guerrillas, rebuilt his life from the ruins, left Hitler's SS emblem for another symbol.

Excerpts from UNDER THE SS SHADOW:

* “In an official declaration, my father stated that he and his family had left the state church. We were Gottglaubig. The SS symbol became the point of reference for our family.”
* “We of the Hitler Youth were going forward with Hitler, we were sure. Several years later, as I huddled in a foxhole, I wondered where we were going or where we could go.”
*“I feel like a man sitting in a car that's going down a hill," my father said, "but it's too late to get out.”
* “May 7, 1945, Germany officially surrendered to the Western Allies. On May 9, Russian troops marched into Berlin. I could not even guess what the future held for me.”
*“Augsburg is about fifty miles from Dachau, location of the infamous concentration camp. Only after the war did we discover what had happened at our doorstep.”
