The Nazi’s Granddaughter: How I Discovered My Grandfather Was a War Criminal
Twenty-one years ago, Silvia made a deathbed promise to her mother to write a book about her famous WWII hero grandfather, Jonas Noreika. Silvia’s grandmother begged her not to write about her husband, “Just let history lie” she whispered. Silvia had no idea that in keeping her promise to her mother, her discoveries would bring her to a personal crisis, challenge her Catholic faith, unearth Holocaust denial, and expose an official cover-up by the Lithuanian government. Her goal in writing this story of her grandfather, known as General Storm, is to upend Lithuania’s narrative that Lithuanians had nothing to do with killing Jews, that it was all done by German Nazis.
