520    When Jennifer Teege, a German-Nigerian woman, happened to 
       pluck a library book from the shelf, she had no idea that 
       her life would be irrevocably altered. Recognizing photos 
       of her mother and grandmother in the book, she discovers a
       horrifying fact: her grandfather was Amon Goeth, the 
       vicious Nazi commandant chillingly depicted by Ralph 
       Fiennes in Schindler's List-a man known and reviled the 
       world over. Although raised in an orphanage and eventually
       adopted, Teege had some contact with her biological mother
       and grandmother as a child. Yet neither revealed that 
       Teege's grandfather was the Nazi "butcher of Plaszow," 
       executed for crimes against humanity in 1946. The more 
       Teege reads about Amon Goeth, the more certain she becomes
       : if her grandfather had met her-a black woman-he would 
       have killed her. Teege's discovery sends her, at age 
       thirty-eight, into a severe depression-and on a quest to 
       unearth and fully comprehend her family's haunted history.
       Her research takes her to Krakow-to the sites of the 
       Jewish ghetto her grandfather "cleared" in 1943 and the 
       Plaszow concentration camp he then commanded-and back to 
       Israel, where she herself once attended college, learned 
       fluent Hebrew, and formed lasting friendships. Teege 
       struggles to reconnect with her estranged mother, Monika, 
       and to accept that her beloved grandmother once lived in 
       luxury as Amon Goeth's mistress at Plaszow. Teege's story 
       is cowritten by award-winning journalist Nikola Sellmair, 
       who also contributes a second, interwoven narrative that 
       draws on original interviews with Teege's family and 
       friends and adds historical context. Ultimately, Teege's 
       resolute search for the truth leads her, step by step, to 
       the possibility of her own liberation.
