This is a high-impact story of a young German child growing up in Hitler's Third Reich, and presents vivid images that guide the listener back in time. Child of War was written simply to remember and inform without self-pity or bitterness. Child of War stands apart as a rare account of those tumultuous times amidst the many writings so colored by the net effects of tragedy. It tells the story of average people caught up in a conflict beyond their control. Christel's reflections are heart-provoking, yet lighthearted, and entertaining to hear read aloud.

    " I really liked this book. The author was able to explain how the average German of her parents's generation was able to support the Nazis, something that is missing from many other WWII memoirs. She grew up in Bechtesgaden, the town where Hitler and other top Nazis built their Alpine getaway houses. Good read. "

    " I think nearly everyone has read accounts of the Holocaust, but few from this perspective. This is such a different look at Hitler and the Nazi party, but it's so appropriate. Irmgard Hunt didn't set out to justify the terrible acts committed by Germany during WWII, instead she recounted her family's involvement in the war effort, their struggle to live, and their growth after Hitler. Really, what I gained from this book was an insight into the absolute power Hitler had after he became Chancellor. Somehow I didn't have an idea as to the scope of censorship and fear mongering used against his own followers. Beyond WWII insight, On Hitler's Mountain is packed with cultural information. As a nice addition, this book also offered glorious pictures. Specifically, the beautiful landscape photographs contrast so well against what was going on at the time. "

    " An interesting book that shares a different side to World War II. Irmgard Hunt does a great job of telling the story of her childhood growing up during the war and in the shadow of one of Hitler's homes/hide-a-ways. I have read many books about the Holocaust, most from the side of the victims, so it was interesting to hear from the other side, and how a common German viewed the War, Hitler, and how their lives were shaped during this time.
