Don't Lose Your Head is a powerful story of a young German girl coming of age in Berlin, Germany from 1933 to 1945 in the insane world of Nazi Germany. An unsettling, first-hand account of what life was like for average citizens under Hitler, it's an eye-opening, sometimes charming, and often chilling account of a world gone mad.

About the Author:

Helga Fuller was born in Berlin in 1925. When she was eight-years-old, Adolph Hitler came to power and life changed drastically.While many German citizens were forced to join the Nazi Party, Helga's family resisted. The Nazi's watched everyone and everything. It was dangerous to speak one's mind. It was dangerous to even be seen speaking to a Jew.

Although the family was never caught helping their many Jewish friends, they were punished by the Nazis nevertheless, simply for not joining the party. Helga's father was drafted into the army at the age of 53; her 23-year old brother was killed while fighting on the Russian front.

Helga Fuller survived the atrocities of Word War II, earned an engineering degree, and found herself working under Werner von Braun in Huntsville, Alabama. She has received several citations and awards for her contributions to the military and the US space program. She was listed in "Who is Who of American Women" in 1967. She has been married to her husband for nearly 40 years and is now retired.
