In addition, the new king gathers new, young allies like the unscrupulous Rainald von Dassel. The old margraves Albrecht der Bär and Konrad von Meißen fear for their power. You risk everything and lose a lot. And in the middle of this merciless struggle for power are young women like Hedwig, the future Margravine of Meissen, and the beautiful Beatrix of Burgundy, who immediately fell for Barbarossa with skin and hair ...

Stahl, Stefanie:
Nest warmth that gives wings: give support and give freedom - how we raise without closing

Argon Publishing House, 2019.
Children need parents who raise their upbringing clearly, authentically, relaxed and lovingly. But that's easier said than done, because many parents' everyday lives are crammed with duties and deadlines. This audio book aims to take the strain off you by encouraging you to reflect on your relationship with your child and yourself. Because it is important as a father or mother to be at peace with yourself and to become aware of your own influences and beliefs. In this way we can not only see our child through the lens of their own demands and needs, but also recognize what they actually need.

Brack-Zahner, Bernhard:
Nothing human is alien to me: the life of Nelly Meffert-Guggenbühl; Biography.

Appenzeller Verlag, 2003.
They could hardly be more different: Nelly Guggenbühl (1904 to 1999), the daughter from a middle-class St. Gallen house and the German artist Carl Meffert, alias Clément Moreau, who emigrated to Zurich. The two found each other in Zurich in the 1930s and entered into a lifelong, symbiotic relationship. The life together was anything but straightforward, but what once caused grief and pain are, in retrospect, episodes of an exciting life story. The author has carefully traced these.

Decker, Kerstin:
Franziska zu Reventlow: a biography.

Berlin-Verlag, 2018.
As a painter and writer, Franziska zu Reventlow (1871 to 1918) was one of the most dazzling figures of Munich bohemianism around 1900 and became an icon of women's emancipation in the 1980s. Kerstin Decker, an accomplished author of novel-like biographies, emphasizes the uncompromising will for freedom of the eccentric countess and the high price she had to pay for her social independence and her easy love life. Another focus is on the numerous love relationships and affairs of the "Scandal Countess", including such prominent names as Ludwig Klages, R.M. Rilke or Frank Wedekind.

The choice, Freddy:
The one with the bike and the one with the Alfa: Benedict XVI. and Hans Küng - a double portrait.

Pattloch, 2006.
One comes from a middle-class family, the other comes from the country. The Second Vatican Council brought them together. They became friends. Hans Küng brought Joseph Ratzinger to the theological faculty of the University of Tübingen. Küng drove to the lectures in a fancy Alfa Romeo, Ratzinger on his bicycle. After the student riots in 1968, they parted ways. Hans Küng became a theological author of world renown, Joseph Ratzinger as Benedict XVI. the 245th Pope of the Catholic Church. The book describes the exciting life paths of the two great minds of the Catholic Church who were once friends and bitter opponents. For 20 years, the ejected church critic and spokesman for critical Catholics had asked for an audience with John Paul II - without success. His actual theological antipode, Joseph Ratzinger, grants him it. And isn't the church moving?
