In the final autumn of World War II, Helmuth James von Moltke was awaiting trial for his leading role in the Kreisau Circle, one of the most important German resistance groups against the Nazis. At Berlin's Tegel Prison, the chaplain was Harald Poelchau, a friend and coconspirator of Helmuth and his wife, Freya. Poelchau would carry Helmuth's and Freya's letters in and out of prison daily, risking his own life. As collected here, these letters are a profoundly personal record of the couple's fortitude in the face of fascism.
