Dorothee Röhrig, granddaughter of Hans von Dohnanyi, who was murdered in the resistance, and his wife Christine, née Bonhoeffer, is coming to Bonhoeffer House the day before her reading at the Leipzig Book Fair. The book, which was published just 6 weeks ago, has already made it onto the Spiegel bestseller list for non-fiction books. Dorothee Röhrig puts the spotlight on the strong women in the family who not only stood behind their husbands in the resistance, but alongside them.
The title of the book is a quote from her mother: „Du wirst noch an mich denken“ („You will still think of me“) and bears the subtitle: „Liebeserklärung einer schwierigen Mutter“ („Declaration of love to a difficult mother“).
The dtv publishing company writes about this:
Dorothee Röhrig will present her book in conversation with the vice chairman of the Bonhoeffer House, Dr. Tobias Korenke, grandson of Rüdiger Schleicher, who was also murdered in the resistance, and his wife Ursula, born Bonhoeffer.
