really liked it

Releases in the US 12/2019, I read an advanced reader copy. Translated from the German printing. Set in the early to mid-1960s Auschwitz Trials in Frankfurt. The main character is a young translator at the trials, coming from a background of denial of what happened in the camp, she comes to realize its horrors and her family involvement. Well written with good character development and interesting subplots. In my mind while reading was the Bible verse “the sins of the fathers visited upon the children.”
