My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me: A Black Woman Discovers Her Family's Nazi Past
Bargain Book Copy
At age 38, 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 depicted in Schindler’s List. Reviled as the "butcher of Plaszow," 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 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.
