Grandson of Former Nazi Leader Fights Europe's Far-Right

FSWC Reports:

From AFP via

Rainer Hess didn't learn about the extent of his grandfather's involvement in the Holocaust until the age of 12, when one of his teachers told him the grim truth. Rudolf Hess had been the commander of Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland, responsible for the deaths of more than one million men, women and children.

"I knew nothing of Auschwitz, I knew nothing of my family, I only knew that my grandfather had participated in the war like thousands of others," Hess told the AFP during a recent trip to Stockholm, the Swedish capital.
