This chapter recounts what little correspondence had passed between the Heisenbergs on their first two years of marriage. During this time the couple has been rarely apart and thus had few occasions to write letters to each other. Furthermore, the letters exchanged during the period December 29, 1937 to May 1, 1938 largely contain scenes of a quiet, domestic happiness, in their attempt to counter the nightmarishly troubled times prevalent in Germany during this period. However, the Heisenbergs’ peaceful domestic scene is not wholly spared of politics: Werner has to continue his fight for his reputation, and his hope of being appointed Arnold Sommerfeld’s successor at the University of Munich remains unfulfilled.
