Virtual Bagels & Books

Monday, December 7, 10-11 a.m.

Join us on Zoom to discuss My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me by Jennifer Teege and Nikola Sellmair, a New York Times best-seller described as “a stunning memoir of cultural trauma and personal identity.”

At age 38, Jennifer Teege happened to pluck a library book from the shelf and discovered a horrifying fact: Her grandfather was Amon Goeth, the vicious Nazi commandant immortalized in the film Schindler’s List. Reviled as the “butcher of Plaszów,” Goeth was executed in 1946. The more Teege learned about him, the more certain she became: If her grandfather had met her — a black woman — he would have killed her.
