Lamb of Legacy
Lamb of Legacy: A Child's Survival in Hitler's Berlin is the beautifully honest and haunting true story of Edeltraud Fellendorf's childhood in Silesia and adolescent years in Berlin, Germany, where she was raised in the shadow of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich, the madness of World War 2, and the years that followed. She survives today through the grace of God, and is determined to finally share her story before everything is forgotten—before the past is buried and no one remembers the ugliness of a world at war and what it means to be a German girl, a sacrificial Lamb that innocently carried on Hitler's Legacy.

The tank was on fire, its tracks broken off, and there were pieces of human beings lying around it— a torso with no legs, no arms, no head. Body parts with shredded pieces of uniform still clinging to them were also hanging in the tree the tank had been parked next to; the only piece still identifiable was an arm hanging from one of the tree’s larger branches.
One soldier’s body hung half way out of the circular commander’s cupola on top of the turret, his head missing. What was left of his neck gushed blood. His back was on fire. Parts of the tree also lay splintered on the ground. It was a devastating sight. So much blood! Blood, chunks of flesh, and fire everywhere.
