My German parents, grandparents and great-parents all lived through WWII, just about. I heard many stories about that time, all bad stuff.
This extraordinary story about one German woman, born 25 years after the war, has significance for many others, whether their relatives were victimizers, victims, or bystanders.
(Of course, there are other possibilities, such as having relatives who were heroes.)
This book is also for anyone who has ever grappled with the horror of the Holocaust. And it is a book that many others too should read. Soon Germany will hold a national election with candidates running as what could be called Nazi apologists. If this granddaughter of a concentration camp commandant can confront her family's past and find authentic peace, why can't others?
