Ricardo was younger, and fully disowned his father is soon as he understood what was going on. He eventually became a professor of Middle Eastern archaeology, and taught at a university in Tuebingen. He even once had a face-to-face meeting with the Israeli agent who kidnapped his father.

    Manfred Rommel Jr was an awesome guy. You can read up on yourself when you get a few minutes, but you would be hard-pressed to find anybody to say something negative about him. And one really strange coincidence happened regarding him. He was the mayor of Stuttgart, and the 7th Corps headquarters was also there, and during the 70s the base commander was George Patton Jr. They became close friends. I met George a couple of times, and he was just like how his father supposedly was.
    That's pretty cool. This is what makes life interesting.

    Many German soldier were just conscripts, so, ok. But the cult of Rommel is odd. There were scores of French Resistance and Serbian Partisans who actually put their lives on the line. Gave up their lives actually.

    But most of them were Commies...so.
