Collection: Freya von Moltke

Freya von Moltke (1911–2010) was part of the anti-Nazi opposition group the Kreisau Circle, which she helped to form with her husband, Helmuth. After World War II, Freya left Germany and settled in South Africa with her two sons. Unable to tolerate apartheid, however, she returned to Berlin in 1956 and eventually settled in Norwich, Vermont, where she lived until her death.
