Fascinating, compelling and eye-opening, Reich Child tells the incredible personal story of a woman and her son trapped in Hitler’s monstrous ambitions. Late in life, David Bugno discovered a shocking truth about himself, one his mother, suffering from her own emotional scars, threw in his face. While I thought I knew about the Nazis and the Lebensborn program, Bugno and Garrity helped me see historical realities I had not understood, from not that long ago.
Reich Child is a story that needs to be told and read widely. Not only does it shine a light on a dark time through the window of one mother and her son, it also gives hope to those with difficult childhoods. Redemption is possible.
