My Father's Keeper: Children of Nazi Leaders--an intimate history of damage and denial by Stephan and Norbert Lebert.

Another subject that facinates me is the holocaust. I find it unimaginable what the vicitms of the Nazis went through and even more unimaginable is that you would do this to someone else for any reason at all. Often we forget these men who we (quite justifiably I feel) call monsters had families who may or may not have agreed with their parent's beliefs. Either way, what we see a man to be and what his children see him to be can often be two completely different things. As their child, how do you marry the two??
