They are My Children, Too: A Mother's Struggle for Her Sons
When Catherine Meyer took her two young sons to the airport in the summer of 1994, she had no idea what a tragic turn life was about to take. Little did she know that from that day on, she and her children would never be free to talk, to cuddle, to laugh - and to love. After all, she was not sending her sons far, to some unknown and dangerous land, but to Germany, to see their father on summer holiday. But Alexander and Constantin, then ages 9 and 7, would never return from Germany. In violation of a custody agreement and in deliberate defiance of both British and German courts, Catherine's ex-husband kept the boys and cruelly deprived her of any access to them. Astonishingly, his illegal action was eventually supported by the German courts on the grounds that the boys wished to remain in Germany, and that they had been suffering in the "foreign environment" of London, England.
