Feature guest - Catherine von Bredow

From Nine To Noon, 10:06 am on 4 August 2009

In 2000, Catherine von Bredow's 42 year old husband, Hasso, had a massive stroke - leaving him paralyzed, mute but alert. Eventually he regained a tiny amount of movement in his thumb, enabling him to painstakingly select letters from a screen and ultimately write a memoir. Catherine von Bredow has now published that work, interwoven with her own memories of their family's ordeal. She speaks to Kathryn about the journey.
