shortDescription

The New York Times bestseller—"a stunning memoir of cultural trauma and personal identity" by the black granddaughter of a Nazi depicted in Schindler's List (Booklist, starred review).
At age thirty-eight, Jennifer Teege happened to pluck a library book from the shelf—and discovered a horrifying fact: Her grandfather was Amon Goeth, the vicious Nazi commandant immortalized in the film Schindler's List. Reviled as the "butcher of Plaszów," Goeth was executed in 1946. The more Teege learned about him, the more certain she became: If her grandfather had met her—a black woman—he would have killed her.
Teege's discovery sends her into a severe depression—and 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?

fullDescription

The New York Times bestseller—"a stunning memoir of cultural trauma and personal identity" by the black granddaughter of a Nazi depicted in Schindler's List (Booklist, starred review).
At age thirty-eight, Jennifer Teege happened to pluck a library book from the shelf—and discovered a horrifying fact: Her grandfather was Amon Goeth, the vicious Nazi commandant immortalized in the film Schindler's List. Reviled as the "butcher of Plaszów," Goeth was executed in 1946. The more Teege learned about him, the more certain she became: If her grandfather had met her—a black woman—he would have killed her.
Teege's discovery sends her into a severe depression—and 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 adds further 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.
