Thirty-eight years after Jennifer Teege was given up for adoption, she walks into a library, picks up a book, and astonishingly recognizes her biological mother’s photograph on its cover. After flipping through the pages, Teege, a black German woman, unearths a chilling family secret: her grandfather was Amon Goeth, a sadistic Nazi concentration camp commandant famously portrayed in the movie Schindler’s List. Hear Teege’s shocking true story as she reads from her internationally best selling memoir: My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me.
Join the provocative conversation in a post-show talkback led by Stephanie Renee of WURD examining how heritage and legacy impacts our lives today. Panelists Jacob Winterstein, Shawn Theodore, and Katrina Browne discuss true family stories related to the holocaust and slave trade. A book signing concludes the event.
