Roberta Kagan about this book: "You Are My Sunshine," is the companion novel to "All My Love, Detrick" It is the story of a little girl who is born into Hitler's home for the Lebensborn. The Lebensborn was a project created by Himmler under Hitler's direction. The goal was to genetically engineer perfect Aryan children. Then these children would be adopted by SS officers and their wives who would teach them how to be good Nazi's so that they could be the rulers of Hitler's new world once he won the war. However, thank God, Hitler lost. Although this book is Historical Fiction, the Lebensborn homes were very real. When I was doing research for this novel, I discovered that after the war many of the Lebensborn children were sent to mental hospitals. They were ostracized by society, and most were unable to find their birth parents. The reign of the Third Reich left a trail of victims, people who suffered due to their religion, race or political beliefs. And, it also left behind a little known group of helpless and innocent children who were confused and lost. These were Hitler's Lebensborn babies and their stories are tragic because, they too are victims.
