Jennifer Teege - "My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me"

Monday, April 27, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Meet The Author - Jennifer Teege.
What would you do if you found out your grandfather was responsible for the brutal murders of thousands of people? How would your life, your sense of self, change? That is the reality Jennifer Teege, a German-Nigerian woman, faced when she learned that her grandfather was Amon Goeth, the vicious Nazi commandant depicted by Ralph Fiennes in "Schnidler’s List." She realized that because of her black skin, her grandfather would have shot her, as well. Teege discusses her bestselling book, "My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me: A Black Woman Discovers Her Family's Nazi Past," available now for the first time in English. Books will be for sale and the event will conclude with a book signing.
