Erwin, Gisèle, Walter, Christiane ont aujourd’hui près de 70 ans. Ces Français, marqués à jamais par le sceau de leur étrange origine, sont nés dans une maternité SS. Leur secret renvoie à l’un des projets nazis les plus terrifiants entrepris entre 1935 et 1945 : créer une « race supérieure », future élite du IIIe Reich. Ce livre raconte la création de nurseries spéciales, les Lebensborn, par la SS. Les deux parents étaient sélectionnés selon leur « pureté raciale aryenne » : grands, blonds, les yeux bleus. les nourrissons pouvaient y être abandonnés, puis adoptés par des familles modèles. Leur véritable identité était alors falsifiée. Ces enfants devenus adultes dévoilent pour la première fois leur histoire, depuis leur naissance dans un établissement du Lebensborn jusqu’à la maison-mère de l’organisation, ainsi que leur quête vertigineuse pour retrouver, des décennies plus tard, la trace de leurs parents. Une enquête inédite qui met au jour une part sombre de l’histoire de France.

Created by Heinrich Himmler, 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. In the summer of 1942, parents across Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia were required to submit their children to medical checks designed to assess racial purity. One such child, Erika Matko, was nine months old when Nazi doctors declared her fit to be a “Child of Hitler.” Taken to Germany and placed with politically vetted foster parents, Erika was renamed Ingrid von Oelhafen. Many years later, Ingrid began to uncover the truth of her identity. Though the Nazis destroyed many Lebensborn records, Ingrid unearthed rare documents, including Nuremberg trial testimony about her own abduction. Following the evidence back to her place of birth, Ingrid discovered an even more shocking secret: a woman named Erika Matko, who as an infant had been given to Ingrid’s mother as a replacement child. 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. INCLUDES PHOTOGRAPHS From the Hardcover edition.

Published originally in the pages of Le Monde, this collection of linked short stories by Qiu Xiaolong has already been a major bestseller in France (Cite de la Poussiere Rouge) and Germany (Das Tor zur Roten Gasse), where it and the author was the subject of a major television documentary. The stories in Years of Red Dust trace the changes in modern China over fifty years—from the early days of the Communist revolution in 1949 to the modernization movement of the late nineties—all from the perspective of one small street in Shanghai, Red Dust Lane. From the early optimism at the end of the Chinese Civil War, through the brutality and upheaval of the Cultural Revolution, to the death of Mao, the pro-democracy movement and the riots in Tiananmen Square—history, on both an epic and personal scale, unfolds through the bulletins posted and the lives lived in this one lane, this one corner of Shanghai.
