Hans-Joachim  Noack - The Weizsäckers.  - A German Family


Mind and power, glory and tragedy: Germany's most famous family

No other family has left a greater mark on German history during the last hundred years than the Weizsäckers. Hans-Joachim Noack has spent years researching the family and examined many hitherto unknown documents in the process of tracing the path of this family – a path that must surely be typical of the incredible ups and lowest of downs of the German elite.

Karl Hugo von Weizsäcker is made a member of nobility when he was Minister President, his son Ernst was sentenced as a Nazi war criminal, Carl Friedrich was involved in work on the German atom bomb and influenced the peace movement, brother Richard was elected to be the first President of Germany after reunification. And as the co-president of the Club of Rome, Ernst-Ulrich is active in the green movement.

Hans-Joachim Noack has explored the connection between mind and power, of glory and tragedy and en passant his narrative is almost a history of Germany during the last hundred years.
