Using the example of a Lebensborn Heim (home) near Bremen the journalist and author Dorothee Schmitz-Köster describes everyday life and ideology of the organisation Lebensborn e.V., founded by the leader of the SS, the Nazi Schutzstaffel (Protection Squadron), Heinrich Himmler in 1935. Biographical sketches  explore the motives of the mothers, the fates of the Lebensborn children, but also the attitude of the fathers and the Heim employees. Carefully researched and well written, this German book is suitable for a large circle of historically interested readers.
