Join us to celebrate the publication of John W. Larson's The German Friend. The book is a collection of fascinating letters from Prinz Lowenstein to John Larson, known to his friends and family as "Hans Christian." The letters cover not only politics, and events of WWII, but philosophy, ideals and day-to-day activites, with humor and insight. A testament to friendship and to the fight for freedom, the book is a deeply personal eploration of the thoughts, hopes and values of one of Germany's most prominent wartime authors and anti-Nazi activists.

The book is currently available through RCHS, trade size softcover (paperback), large print type, over 700 pages.
Members Price: $22.00
