In My Grandfather’s Shadow: How can we deal with a difficult past? Angela Findlay

Anglo-German author, artist and lecturer, Angela Findlay, presents her recently published book, In My Grandfather’s Shadow / Im Schatten meines Großvaters.

Based on the experiences of her Wehrmacht general grandfather who served on the Eastern Front and her German mother who fled Berlin as a child, she will explore the often hidden legacies of shame and guilt to demonstrate how subsequent generations of Germans are finding ways to come to terms with the shadow of their parents' and grandparents’ traumas and misdeeds in Nazi Germany and the Second World War.
