Her early life was shrouded in mystery until, at age 64, Kari Rosvall received a letter containing a photograph of herself as a young baby—the only such image she had ever seen. This was the first step toward Rosvall's learning that she was a Lebensborn child, part of Hitler's "Spring of Life" program, which encouraged Nazi soldiers to father children with Nordic women in order to create an Aryan race. In this remarkable story of reconciliation and new beginnings, Rosvall describes her journey back to her roots—to Norway, where she was taken from her mother and sent to Germany in a crate to join the other Lebensborn children, and to postwar Germany and her eventual rescue from an attic by the Red Cross.
"This is a beautifully written story. Of healing and love—and pain. Reading this book is like sitting in front of Kari, listening to her opening her heart to you."—Irish Times
