Description
When Jennifer Teege, a German-Nigerian woman, happened to pluck a library book from the shelf, she made the horrifying discovery that her grandfather was Amon Goeth, the vicious Nazi commandant depicted in Schindler's List. Reviled as the "butcher of Plaszów," Goeth was executed for war crimes in 1946, and the more Teege learned about him, the more certain she became that, if her grandfather had met her, he would have killed her. The realization nearly unravels her own identity, 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? Her "haunting and unflinching" memoir (Washington Post) is co-written by Stern reporter Nikola Sellmair, who adds historical context and insight from Teege's family and friends in an interwoven narrative.

"The alternating narrative between Teege and co-author Sellmair offers a refreshing and ultimately impartial analysis. Teege's heartfelt commentary and Sellmair's objective narrative produce a layer of balanced interpretation and insight."—NYJournal of Books
