This powerful memoir traces Brazilian-born American Julie Lindahl's journey to uncover her grandparents' role in WWII as she is driven to understand why they became members of Hitler's elite, the SS. Out of the unbearable heart of the story--the unclaimed guilt that devours a family through generations--emerges an unflinching will to learn the truth
