The autobiographical writings of the composer Georg Friedrich Haas, born in Graz in 1953, are an important document of great rarity in contemporary history. They describe a complex Austrian family history in the context of National Socialism after the Second World War. Haas describes his grandfather Fritz Haas (Headmaster of the Vienna University of Technology 1938-1942) as the "Übervater" of his family, whose ideological connection to the Nazi regime is illuminated, as well as his activity in the post-war period. With great meticulousness, emotional strength and a clear analysis of society as a whole, Haas gives a detailed inside view of a German nationalist / National Socialist circle and tells of his departure from this milieu – his way out.
