Author Jennifer Teege speaks about her book My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me: A Black Woman Discovers Her Family's Nazi Past.

One afternoon six years ago, Jennifer Teege was killing time in her local library in Hamberg, Germany, when she came across a striking title: I Have to Love My Father, Don't I?  She pulled the book from the shelf.  On the cover was a photo of a weary-looking woman and there, too, was the subtitle: The Life Story of Monika Goeth, Daughter of the Concentration Camp Commandant from 'Schindler's List'.

Teege couldn't believe it.  Monika was her mother.
