This chapter provides the few letters that the couple exchanged during the months of July, August, and November in the year 1945. Dire conditions following the tail end of the war add to the struggles of the Heisenberg family—Elisabeth especially—as Werner is arrested on May 2 by an American advance troop under Colonel Pash and taken to the manor Farm Hall near Cambridge. While Werner and the other scientists at Farm Hall are leading a relatively uniform but materially carefree life, Elisabeth has to muster all her strength to get the family through. Hopes that Werner might be released at Christmas are not fulfilled, but letters point to the possibility that the separation of the family will not last much longer.

Keywords:   1945, World War II, American troops, Farm Hall, wartime concerns, Urfeld
