Summary Durante cincuenta años, Anna Schlemmer ha rehusado hablar de su vida en Alemania durante la segunda guerra mundial. Su hija, Trudy, tenía cinco años cuando fueron liberadas por el ejército estadounidense y se trasladaron a Minnesota. Trudy, que es ahora profesora de historia alemana, empieza a investigar hasta descubrir la dramática y desgarradora verdad que esconde el silencio de su madre.
For fifty years, Anna Schlemmer has refused to talk about her life in Germany during World War II. Her daughter, Trudy, was only three when she and her mother were liberated by an American soldier and went to live with him in Minnesota. Trudy's sole evidence of the past is an old photograph; a family portrait showing Anna, Trudy, and a Nazi officer, the Obersturmfuehrer of Buchenwald. Driven by the guilt of her heritage, Trudy, now a professor of German history, begins investigating the past and finally unearths the dramatic and heartbreaking truth of her mother's life. Combining a passionate, doomed love story, a vivid evocation of life during the war, and a poignant mother/daughter drama, Those Who Save Us is a profound exploration of what we endure to survive and the legacy of shame.
