Summary
"At age 38, Jennifer Teege happened to pluck a library book from the shelfand discovered a horrifying fact: Her grandfather was Amon Goeth, the vicious Nazi commandant depicted in Schindler's List. Reviled as the "butcher of Płaszów," Goeth was executed in 1946. The more Teege learned about him, the more certain she became: If her grandfather had met hera black womanhe would have killed her. Teege's discovery sends her into a severe depressionand fills her with questions: Why did her birth mother withhold this chilling secret? How could her grandmother have loved a mass murderer? Can evil be inherited? Teege's story is cowritten by Nikola Sellmair, who also adds historical context and insight from Teege's family and friends, in an interwoven narrative. Ultimately, Teege's search for the truth leads her, step by step, to the possibility of her own liberation."--Amazon
