WAGs of the Third Reich (with Anne Sebba, Jane Thynne, Rachel Johnson and Meike Ziervogel), Soho Literary Festival

September 29, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

| £9

Whole libraries of books have been written about the male members of Hitler’s evil court, but far less is known about their wives and girlfriends. How were these women able to live with some of the greatest monsters in history? Anne Sebba, the biographer of Wallis Simpson and Mother Teresa, will be chairing a discussion with three women who have made the subject their own: Jane Thynne, author of Black Roses, the story of Clara Vine, an ambitious actress who finds herself among the inner circle of Nazi wives, among them Magda Goebbels; Meike Ziervogel whose biography, Magda,attempts to understand the woman who murdered her own children; and Rachel Johnson, whose novel Winter Games follows a group of upper-class English girls who are at first attracted to those men in black uniforms.
