Children of the Third Reich: what happened to the daughters and granddaughters of famous NazisPictolic
We know a lot about such Nazis as Hermann Goering, Amon Goeth or Heinrich Himmler, because their atrocities devoted entire books, films and articles. But few people know that they and other criminals of the world were beloved children. Some of them are still alive and even continue to "nice" kind.
Who they are the daughter and granddaughter of famous villains, read our material.
Monica Hertwig – the daughter of Amon goeth and his mistress Ruth Irene Kanter. The woman remembers that his entire life has grown as if around there was no horror. Head she created the illusion of a good father and otherwise have fed it, hoping it will eventually be true.
"Can a Pope be wrong?" for Monica this was rhetorical. The girl believed that the Jews in Plaszow and her father is like one big family. So when mom said that Amon killed a "few Jews", Monica was genuinely surprised.
"A few is how much? Two? Three?" — says she is his mother, but instead received punishment in the form of blows with a cable. Obviously, for Ruth Kanter it was a painful subject.
Only years later, Monica realized how horrible were the actions of her father. The truth on what is happening to her was opened by the film "Schindler's List", which vividly showed the murder of Jews by the Nazi criminals.
The woman did not have the courage to tell his daughter. Instead, she shared her story publicly in the film "Inheritance".
And here is the same daughter that Monica Hartwick was unable to tell the truth. Looking at Jennifer, it's hard to imagine that she could be the granddaughter of "platovskogo butcher" Amon goeth.
The girl came to light in 1970 after the affair Monica Hartwick with a Nigerian man. Despite the fact that the baby was given up for adoption, throughout her life she maintained contact with the family Gets. With all, except mother with her she spoke for the first time when she was just 20 years old.
All this time Jennifer did not even know that she is the granddaughter of the geta, considering his relatives of his namesakes. But once she got her hands on the book, which tells the biography of the mother – then Teige and learned the awful truth.
For some time the woman swallowed a prolonged depression, to escape from which was only the adoption itself, and the public recognition of the world. So he published a book called "My grandfather would have shot me", in which Teige shared their thoughts and experiences.
Edda Goering — a daughter of Vice Marshal of aviation and official successor of the führer, Hermann Goering. The girl was called a "Nazi Princess", since her childhood was spent in an atmosphere of solid luxury toys of pure silver, a reduced copy of the Palace of king Frederick II's Sanssouci is a Dollhouse, most expensive dress that the parents just could not afford.
Hermann Goering literally anything she didn't refuse, but the fairy tale did not last long. May 21, 1945 Ed with her mother was placed in an American prison in the Luxembourg, and a year later their loving father and husband was poisoned with cyanide, to avoid the penalty on the gallows.
No matter what, Edda continued to believe Goering the most kind and caring father until his death. The woman died on 21 December 2018 at the age of 80 years.
But Bettina Goering — grandniece of Vice Marshal of greater Germany Reich, unlike the Edda are unable to come to terms with the past of their relative. At the age of 30 years he and his brother made the decision on voluntary sterilization.
Now she lives in Mexico and has been herbalism. About his decision to abandon the kind of Bettina does not regret. According to her, it is better to lose the opportunity to have children than to give life to the same monstrous man like Goering.
Gudrun Burwitz — the eldest daughter of Reichsfuhrer SS Heinrich Himmler — was born in 1929. His father, who became responsible for the death of tens of millions of people, she worshipped! Since childhood, Gudrun shared his interests went to his "work", wrote letters and kept him on the phone. Himmler also belonged to the daughters with special awe and until the end of life called her the affectionate nickname of Puppy.
Gudrun refused to believe that her dad committed suicide, and insisted that he was killed. And in General, she passionately defended Himmler, denying the atrocities in the camps, gas chambers and mass executions.
After their mother was released from camp, she married a member of the far-right National democratic party wolf-Dieter Murvica, fully shared her ideas, took his name and gave birth to two children.
She later created the organization Stille Hilfe ("Silent help"), which was engaged in the financial and legal support to former SS officers. There she worked for decades until his death in 2018.
Katrin Himmler — granddaughter of Insta Himmler, the younger brother of Henry. The woman admits that she is very difficult to live a normal life, aware of how many Nazis were in her family. For example, grandma Catherine for many years maintained ties with the old Nazi, sending parcels to the prison for war criminals.
Ironically, the woman married an Israelite — a descendant of one of the survivors of the Holocaust. To his horror, Himmler notes that sometimes during their fights emerge out of the monstrous stereotypes, sitting somewhere in the subcortex. She tries not to pay attention to them, because they do not believe that evil can be inherited.
Catherine wrote the book "the Brothers Himmler: a German family history" (Die Brüder Himmler: Eine deutsche Familiengeschichte), in which he told his story. The woman admits that the work was given to her very hard, but helped to release the head from many bad thoughts.
