Hiding in N. Virginia, a Daughter of Auschwitz

posted on September 9, 2013

At The Washington Post, Thomas Harding writes an in-depth feature about Brigitte Höss, daughter of the notorious Rudolf Höss, a Nazi who ran Auschwitz. Harding’s great-uncle, Hanns Alexander, a German Jew and British commander, captured Höss after the war. Harding found Brigitte while researching his upcoming book Hanns and Rudolf. “For nearly 40 years she has kept her past out of public view, unexamined, not even sharing her story with her closest family members,” Harding writes. “She would be interviewed only on the condition that neither her married name be revealed nor any details that would disclose her identity.”
