Summary
During World War II, Geraldine Schwarz's German grandparents were neither heroes nor villains; they were merely Mitlaufer--those who followed the current. Once the war ended, they wanted to bury the past under the wreckage of the Third Reich. Decades later, while delving through filing cabinets in the basement of their apartment building in Mannheim, Schwarz discovers that in 1938, her paternal grandfather Karl took advantage of Nazi policies to buy a business from a Jewish family for a low price. She finds letters from the only survivor of this family (all the others perished in Auschwitz), demanding reparations. But Karl Schwarz refused to acknowledge his responsibility. Geraldine starts to question the past: How guilty were her grandparents? What makes us complicit?
