This book has been my passion for a number of years when, after finishing my first book, A Daughter’s Search for her Father, now (because more information has become available to me) wrote my new book, Finding Margaret’s Father Leads to Nazi Intrigue. This is a true story about finding my wife’s father, whom she never met and nobody wanted to talk about. Come along with me and find out about Margaret’s grandfather (born in East Prussia), who got voted in the German Imperial government in 1912, then got the top job and became chancellor of Germany in 1919.
It was the unfortunate circumstances of his position in the Weimar government that made it difficult for him, and he got arrested by Hitler for stealing 30 million deutsche marks, which was reported by his son in school. Margaret’s grandmother quickly pointed out to the authorities that Gustav and herself had a childless marriage, and so he was set free. They had to abandon their son, Wilhelm (born illegitimate), whom the Nazis then used to spread propaganda to the outside world because they didn’t believe Nazi party leaders.
Wilhelm went to the Netherlands and met a beautiful young girl. They fell in love, and she got pregnant. Wilhelm went to France and left Margaret’s mother alone to deal with the Nazi government. Find out how they gave Margaret’s mother the royal treatment by keeping her in the best German hospital for seven weeks, paying all the bills plus paying her 30 guilders a month to look after Margaret. Wilhelm returned to the Netherlands, and the Nazis slowly closed the trap and finally captured their prey.
