   Book Launch Celebration: Ensnared in the Wolf's Lair by Ann Bausum

Sunday, January 24, 2021 from 1:30 AM to 02:30 PM

Join us as we celebrate Ann Bausum's new non-fiction book, Ensnared in the Wolf's Lair: Inside the 1944 Plot to Kill Hitler and the Ghost Children of His Revenge. We'll host a LIVE DISCUSSION in the comments during the premiere! Miss the premiere? Watch the video on YoutTube anytime!
"I've come on orders from Berlin to fetch the three children." -- Gestapo agent, August 24, 1944.  With those chilling words Christa von Hofacker and her younger siblings found themselves ensnared in a web of family punishment designed to please one man - Adolf Hitler.  The furious dictator sought merciless revenge against not only Christa's father and the other Germans who had just tried to overthrow his government.  He wanted to torment their relatives, too, regardless of age or stature.  All of them.  Including every last child.
Ms. Bausum traveled twice to Germany and beyond to research this fascinating, little-known side of the Operation Valkyrie story - the revenge Hitler exacted on the conspirators and their families.  This story of perseverance comes to life through interviews Ms. Bausum conducted with the now adult "ghost children" as well as other primary sources.
