About this title


A true story. A former Hitler Youth, an SS major's son, runs for his life in war-torn Europe, sees his father shot down by guerrillas, rebuilds his life from the ruins, leaves Hitler's SS emblem for another symbol.

Excerpts from UNDER THE SS SHADOW:

* “In an official declaration, my father stated that he and his family had left the state church. We were Gottglaubig. The SS symbol became the point of reference for our family.”

* “We of the Hitler Youth were going forward with Hitler, we were sure. Several years later, as I huddled in a foxhole, I wondered where we were going or where we could go.”

* “I feel like a man sitting in a car that's going down a hill," my father said, "but it's too late to get out.” * “May 7, 1945, Germany officially surrendered to the Western Allies. On May 9, Russian troops marched into Berlin. I could not even guess what the future held for me.”

* “Augsburg is about fifty miles from Dachau, location of the infamous concentration camp. Only after the war did we discover what had happened at our doorstep.”

About the Author:

Traugott Vogel, born in Heidelberg, Germany, is the son of a former SS officer. He came to the United States in 1974 to become pastor of a church in Texas. Shirley Stephens, with whom Traugott collaborated in writing his story, is the author of three other books and countless articles, a long-time editor, and a wife and mother. Other books to her credit: My Daughter Susan Smith, the story of a troubled young mother who sent her children to their deaths in a South Carolina lake. Breaking Crime's Vicious Cycle, the gripping, true-life story of hardened criminal Don Dennis and his conversion and transformation into a life of service to inmates; and A New Testament View of Women, a biblical study of what the New Testament really says about women.
