Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0142004987, Paperback)

A bracing meditation on the nature of evil and a moving evocation of the human heart, Siegfried is one of Harry Mulisch?s most powerful novels. After a reading of his work, renowned Dutch author Rudolf Herter, who had recently commented in a television interview that it may be only through fiction that the uniquely evil figure of Adolf Hitler can be truly comprehended, is approached by an elderly couple. The pair reveal that as domestic servants in Hitler?s Bavarian retreat in the waning years of the war, they were witness to the jealously guarded birth of Siegfried?the son of Hitler and Eva Braun. For more than fifty years they have kept silent about the child they once raised as their own. Only now and only to Herter are they willing to reveal their astonishing story.

"As Harry Mulisch's daring new novel opens, a renowned Dutch author, Rudolf Herter, is in Vienna, having been invited to read from his new masterwork. In a television interview, he muses about Vienna's most notorious son, asserting that it may be only through fiction that the uniquely evil figure of Adolf Hitler can be truly comprehended." "After the reading, he is approached by an elderly couple, the Falks, who have a story of their own, more terrible than anything Herter could have imagined. As domestic servants at Hitler's Bavarian retreat in the waning years of the war, they were witnesses to the jealously guarded birth of Siegfried - the son of Hitler and Eva Braun. For more than fifty years they have kept silent about the child they once raised as their own. Only now and only to Herter are they willing to reveal their astonishing story."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
