Dear Uncle Hitler
The Germans and Their Fuehrer
Author: Michael Kloft, Mathias von der Heide
More than any other historical documents, it is the personal private letters written by a people to "their" dictator that provide the most intimate glimpses of the history of the Third Reich. A treasure of more than 100,000 such letters was recently found. Hidden in a special archive in Moscow, the letters written to the Führer had gone unnoticed for six decades. They had been taken to Moscow from Hitler's private chancellery in 1945.
The content of these letters reveals in uncensored form the true feelings of the people at the time: personal revelations disclosed by the writers to the recipients - hopes, longings, fears, lover letters, declarations of loyalty, birthday wishes, requests and occasionally also words of protest.
