Three army tipper trucks rolled off the ferry at Poros yesterday evening, escorted by a police car. Probably bound for Agia Efimia / Assos.

Not a book about Greece and the author was born in Canada, however I suspect, from her name, that the author is of Greek descent. Despina Stratigakos' latest book, Hitler’s Northern Utopia: Building the New Order in Occupied Norway is a chilling tale of what a nightmare society we might have inherited.

Beauties who had babies for Hitler: The Fuhrer ordered German soldiers occupying Norway to impregnate local girls who he thought had the purest Aryan blood. But after the Nazi defeat, mothers and children were vilified by their own people
Article on the Daily Mail website

Quote
Under an SS-inspired programme known as Lebensborn ('Fount of life'), German troops were encouraged to impregnate the best-looking local girls, with the promise that the Nazi state would look after them and their children.

Newspapers back home projected jolly images of sunny Norwegian milkmaids falling in love with Adolf Hitler for saving them from moral and racial degeneration and doing their duty by breeding with his pure-blooded soldiers.

The human cost was high: those Lebensborn mothers and their children paid a terrible price when the war ended.

Thousands of women were arrested and imprisoned in the summer of 1945 for fraternising with the occupiers. There was no mercy either for their 'German brats', who were branded as outcasts and treated accordingly.

In an ironic turning of the tables, the postwar Norwegian authorities ruled that the mothers who'd slept with German soldiers were clearly mentally retarded, and so were their offspring. Children once elevated for their genes were now scorned for them.

Apparently Anni-Frid Lyngstad of Abba was one of the unfortunate children: Torment of the Abba star with a Nazi father.

Book available for order via the Daily Telegraph.
