Summary"Roger Frie confronts the unspoken Nazi past in his German family. With remarkable courage and honesty he transforms his family narrative into an understanding of the Holocaust's forbidding reality. Combining his own story with those of others, German and Jewish, he sheds light on the pervasive effects of trauma and prejudice. His forthright questioning compels us all to remember and respond to the ever-present legacy of history's crimes." —Back cover
