Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.

I'm curious about the labels you set for this post. Do you know of any of the descendants of Goering or Himmler are part of this documentary?ReplyDelete
Not descendants, but according to the information on imdb.com, two of the interviewees are the great-niece of Goering and the great-niece of Himmler. The other interviewees are the grandson of Rudolf Hoess, the son of Hans Frank, and the daughter of Amon Goeth.Delete
