In my grandfather’s shadow

In 1987, Angela Findlay walked into a prison and instantly but inexplicably felt at home. For years she had wrestled with a sense of ‘badness’ within her. But working with prisoners was just the beginning of her search for answers that took her to Nazi Germany and the life of her dead grandfather, who, it emerged, was a decorated general on the Eastern front. In a rare confluence of memoir, psychology and historical detective story, this is Findlay’s account of her unflinching quest for the truth about her German family, one that breaks through the silence surrounding many of the Second World War’s perpetrators.
