Ellie had been watching him for years and admired his charm, his knowledge, his success. Never in her wildest dreams did she think she would work beside him, but luck was on her side. She was granted the opportunity of a lifetime. At first she had been a captive audience hoping to learn what she could. They developed a great working relationship, complete with hard work, fun banter and mutual respect.

In 1926, at the age of twenty, a trainee dentist called Bruno Langbehn joined the Nazi party. Growing up in a Germany that was impoverished and humiliated by the defeat of the First World War, and surrounded by a fiercely military environment, Bruno was one of the first young men to sign up. And as the party rose to power, he was there every step of the way. Eventually his loyalty was rewarded with a high-ranking position in Hitler's dreaded SS, the elite security service charged with sending Germany's 'racially impure' to the death camps. For fifty years after the end of the Second World War, his family kept this horrifying secret until his British grandson, Martin Davidson, uncovered the truth. Drawing on an astonishing cache of personal documents, Davidson retraces Bruno's journey from disillusioned adolescent to SS Officer to mysterious grandfather. In this extraordinary account he tries to understand how Langbehn and millions of others like him were seduced by Hitler's regime, and attempts to come to terms with this devastating revelation.

Ausgangspunkt und Grundlage der Untersuchung sind Feldforschungen in Kappadokien, wo in den Hohlenkirchen eine Reihe von Grabbefunden und bildern zu finden sind, daneben stehen die wichtigsten erhaltenen Denkmaler der Hauptstadt Konstantinopel und anderer Provinzen des byzantinischen Reichs. Thema des ersten Teils ist das Grab und seine Stellung im Kirchenraum; es wird das architektonische, liturgische und gesellschaftliche Umfeld und sein Einfluss auf die Einrichtung eines Grabes in der Kirche gepruft. Mit dem zweiten Teil beginnt die ikonographische Untersuchung der Grabdekors, wobei beispielhaft Inschriften besprochen und Grabbilder ohne Portrat zusammengestellt und analysiert werden. Der dritte und zentrale Teil der Arbeit untersucht die Grabdekors mit Portrat. Neben der Einteilung in verschiedene Bildtypen steht die Frage nach moglichen Vorbildern im Mittelpunkt. Ursula Weissbrod prasentiert fragmentarisch erhaltene Dekors und schlagt Rekon-struktionsmoglichkeiten vor. Abschliessend werden spatantike Grabbilder verglichen und auf ihre Vorbildfunktion hin uberpruft. Ein systematischer Katalog der behandelten Hohlenkirchen Kappadokiens und Anhange zum Stand der Datierung der Panagia Krina/Chios und zu den verlorenen Grabanlagen der Pammakaristoskirche/Konstantinopel runden die Arbeit ab.
