In a chilling story of her parents’ escape from Hitler’s reign of terror, Bettina Hoerlin reveals the depth and breadth of Nazism in pre-war Germany at a reading and signing at Otowi Station Bookstore on Saturday, May 12, at 3 p.m.
Hoerlin’s book, "Steps of Courage," is a unique blend of historical and personal facts that documents how her parents overcome obstacles to their romance, one between an Aryan and Jew, and fight the nazification of culture, science and mountaineering. Spurred by a treasure trove of 500 love letters and untapped German archives, Hoerlin weaves together a tale playing against some of the most profound markers of the 20th century: Hitler’s Germany, the American immigrant experience, and growing threats of the nuclear age.
