Berlin, 1936. Ernst Schafer, a young, ambitious zoologist and keen hunter and collector, has come to the attention of Heinrich Himmler, who invites him to lead a group of SS scientists to the mountains of Tibet on a secret mission to search for the origins of the Aryan race. Ernst has doubts initially, but soon seizes the opportunity to rise through the ranks of the Third Reich. He marries Herta, his childhood sweetheart who grows increasingly suspicious of Ernst and his expedition. A poignant cautionary tale, The Hollow Bones brings to life one of the Nazi regime's little-known villains through the eyes of the animals he destroyed and the wife he undermined in the name of science and ambition.
