Who Murdered My Father, Rudolf Hess?: My Father's Mysterious Death in Spandau by Wolf-Rüdiger Hess

Wolf Rüdiger Hess was the son of Rudolf Hess, an admirer of his godfather Adolf Hitler, an architect and a fixture of the post-war German far-right. He was also an outspoken critic of the investigation into his father's death, which he believed was a cover-up. He maintained that the British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) had murdered his father in order to prevent his parole – which he believed to be imminent – because the British government were afraid that his father, if allowed to speak freely, would reveal
embarrassing information about British actions during World War II. In 2007, however, documents demonstrating British support for Hess' releaseon humanitarian grounds and their campaign against steadfast Soviet opposition to his release were published.[1]

Hess was deeply embittered by his father's long solitary imprisonment.When Hess was born, every Nazi Gauleiter (regional leader) was instructed to send a small amount of earth from each Gau (region) to hisparents. The earth was spread beneath a cradle so that Hess would symbolically begin his life on the whole of German soil.

Hess wrote three books: My Father Rudolf Hess (1986), Who Murdered My Father, Rudolf Hess? (1989) and Rudolf Heß: Ich bereue nichts (Rudolf Hess: I do not repent anything) (1994/1998).
