Reader recommendation: On Hitler’s Mountain

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

By

In On Hitler’s Mountain, Irmgard Hunt recalls growing up in the shadow of Berghof, the Alpine retreat of Adolf Hitler. During her childhood, the Fuhrer’s motorcade often sped through town, and once, during a brief stop, Hitler placed her on his knee for a photo-op. Hunt does not apologize for Nazi atrocities but offers a child’s-eye view of how a nation lost its moral center.
