Nineteen German women who overcame the fear that dominated their lives since childhood tell of their wartime experiences. Some were children at the time their city, Heilbronn, was firebombed. Others were brides whose husbands were drafted into the army. A full spectrum of political opinion, from resistance fighters to members of the Hitler Youth Organization is represented. Through their eyes we see the impact of Nazi propaganda on young minds.
Lilo Klug, pacifist, peace activist, and member of the Green Party, sits on the city council in Heilbronn, Germany. She lectures internationally about the European peace movement.
