About this product
- DescriptionNEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF A SPY AMONG FRIENDSIn 1886 Elisabeth Nietzsche, Friedrich s bigoted, imperious sister, founded a racially pure colony in Paraguay together with a band of blonde-haired fellow Germans. Over a century later Ben Macintyre sought out the survivors of this Nueva Germania to discover the remains of this bizarre colony. Forgotten Fatherland vividly recounts his arduous adventure locating the survivors, while also tracing the colorful history of Elisabeth s return to Europe, where she inspired the mythical cult of her brother s philosophy and later became a mentor to Hitler. Brilliantly researched and mordantly funny, this is an illuminating portrait of a forgotten people and of a woman whose deep influence on the twentieth century can only w be fully understood.
