Memories of Kreisau and the German Resistance is the personal account of Freya von Moltke, a member of the Kreisau Circle, a German resistance group that participated in the attempt to assassinate Hitler on July 20, 1944. Freya's husband, Helmuth von Moltke, was a cofounder of the circle and was executed after the failed assassination attempt. Freya recounts both personal details and sweeping historical events. She describes the resistance work carried out during the meetings of the circle as well as the last days of Kreisau, after many of the members of the resistance were executed for their roles in the failed assassination attempt. When the war ended in 1945, Freya was evacuated from Kreisau, and the von Moltke estate was given to Poland. Julie M. Winter has a PhD in German from Northwestern University. She is the translator of Marion Yorck von Wartenburg's The Power of Solitude: My Life in the German Resistance (Nebraska 2000).
