From the inside dj flap -- "Forgotten Fatherland is a superb account of a journey to one of the last lost places of the world, as well as a chilling portrait of one of the most extraordinary figures of the past century. In 1886 Elisabeth Nietzsche, sister of the famous philosopher and friend of wagner, traveled with a select group of blond-haired, blue-eyed Germans to the remote Paraguayan wilderness to found an Aryan colony she called New Germany. Over a hundred years later, Ben Macintyre found the descendants of those first settlers, still living in Nueva Germania: breeding among themselves, many have maintained the language, customs and ideals that first brought their ancestors from Europe." This story reads like a novel and proves that fact is stranger than fiction. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: The book is about the founding of a proto-Nazi colony in the Paraguayan jungle that still survives today. It is the remains of a colonial racial experiment carried out by Elizabeth Nietzsche, sister of the famous philosopher. Its inhabitants are German Lutherans, blond-haired, blue-eyed; its streets bear names lie Goebbelsstrasse. "Forgotten Fatherland" is a travel book as well as a biography that chronicles the history of the colony, and examines the life and influence of the woman who was Hitler's mentor and her brother's self-appointed literary executor, who ruthlessly expunged from Nietzsche's work anything that did not concur with her own beliefs.
