Jennifer Teege was 38 when by chance she discovered she was the granddaughter of Amon Goeth, the sadistic Nazi commandant of the Plaszow concentration camp in Poland.
Teege was born to a Nigerian man and a German woman and was taken to an orphanage run by Catholic nuns when she was 4 weeks old. Her parents did not attend her baptism in Munich.
Teege's grandmother, Ruth Irene Goeth, was the mistress of Amon Goeth and stayed with him in his villa at the Plaszow concentration camp. Before her suicide in 1983, she said she should have done more to help people.
When she was growing up in the 1970s, Teege, shown here with her adoptive brother Matthias, was the only black child in her Munich neighborhood.
Teege visited her friend Anat (shown here with her son) in Israel in 2011. For a long time, Teege couldn't bear to tell her Jewish friends that she was the granddaughter of a Nazi.
Teege met Noa in France, a friendship that led to an extended stay for Teege in Israel, where she befriended others who were descendants of Holocaust victims. It was, she says, another fateful event in her life.
A memorial now stands to remember all those from the Plaszow concentration camp who perished.
Teege visited the remains of Plaszow in her quest to learn everything she could about her sinister family history.
