Nazi’s Child, Victim Share ‘Inheritance’


URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/arts/article/nazis_child_victim_share_inheritance_20060616

Monika Hertwig was 1 year old when her father Amon Goeth, sadistic SS commandant of the Plaszow forced-labor and concentration camp, was hanged as a war criminal in 1946. Helen Jonas-Rosenzweig was picked among the prisoners by Goeth as his maid and was brutalized for two years. Now, more than 60 years later, the two women are the unlikely protagonists of the feature documentary "Inheritance: A Legacy of Hatred and the Journey to Change It."
