This Business of Living: Diaries 1935-1950 Paperback – March 18, 2009
"Hitler's Forgotten Children" by Ingrid von Oelhafen
The Lebensborn program abducted as many as half a million children from across Europe. Through a process called Germanization, they were to become the next generation of the Aryan master race in the second phase of the Final Solution. Hitler's Forgotten Children is both a harrowing personal memoir and a devastating investigation into the awful crimes and monstrous scope of the Lebensborn program. Learn more | See related books

"Natalia Ginzburg once wrote that Cesare Pavese's "conversation could be pointed and invigorating like nobody else's. The observation will strike one as all too true after reading his extraordinary diaries. Whether meditating on matters aesthetic, philosophical, or romantic, Pavese brings to bear a metaphysical yearning and a dry, compressed expressiveness to rival that of Kafka, Weil, and CioranHe aspired to an existence that would be utterly inaugural, suffused with a sense of revelation. His suffering stemmed from his inability to carry out the impossible task of raising his life and work to the level of myth. A year before his suicide, he mourned, "I wanted to go on, take it further, absorb another generation, become everlasting, like a hill." These journals are a bracing testament to that struggle."
--Tayt J. Harlin, Review of Contemporary Fiction
