Summary
As war swept across Europe in 1940, the idyllic life of Fey von Hassell seemed a world away from the conflict. The daughter of Ulrich von Hassell, Hitler's Ambassador to Italy, her marriage to Italian aristocrat Detalmo Pirzio-Biroli brought with it a castle and an estate in the north of Italy. Fey and her two young sons led a tranquil life-- until her father and husband made the difficult decision to resist the Nazis. As SS soldiers took up occupancy in the castle, Fey struggled to maintain an air of warm welcome to her unwanted guests. But the clandestine activities of both her father and husband become increasingly brazen and openly rebellious. Fay was arrested-- and their two young boys seized by the SS. Bailey tells of the family's sacrifices, from first-hand accounts and surviving SS files. -- adapted from jacket
