Wow!!
this is somewhat reminiscent of a book I only recently read, called "A Little Town Near Auschwitz," by Mary Fullerton, if I recall properly. She is a Professor of German history, in England.
This book was written because the author is the god-daughter of the wife of the man who was the equivalent of the County Executive, of the area within which Auschwitz is located, during WWII, considered himself an "ordinary" German administrative functionary, but this led him to be caught up in "The final solution."
I'm putting this book on my list!
What a hell of a legacy to have to deal with; ought to be fascinating.
