In August 1944, Hans Georg Klamroth was executed for his part in the 20 July plot to assassinate Hitler. Wibke Bruhns, his youngest daughter, was six years old at the time. Decades later, watching a documentary about the events of 20 July, images of her father in the Third Reich People's Court appeared on the screen - and she realises she never knew him. In "My Father's Country", Bruhns tells of her search for her father. Returning to her ancestral home in Halberstadt, Northern Germany, she retraces her family's story from Kaiser Wilhelm to the end of World War Two, discovering old photographs, letters and diaries, which she uses to piece together a unique and unforgettable family epic.

    On the other hand, I *do* mention my #53 ranking and various award nominations as bona fides in the context of resumes, qvs, and other "reasons why you should hire me/listen to me/give me money." That horn gets dusty if someone doesn't blow it now and then!

      I have been using WP as a mini-CMS since version 1.5, and using a different WP plugin to provide Pay-Per-Video of sporting events. I have just started looking into Woo as a payment gateway for video, and need a way to "hide" the purchased post from viewers who have not paid.
