Hans Hermann K. was an infantry officer in the Wehrmacht and fought in France, Poland and the Soviet Union. The picture shows him and his wife Edith in 1942. Both of them supported the Nazi regime and Pfeiffer admits that they were morally "contaminated," like millions of ordinary Germans of that generation. He describes his grandmother Edith as a "committed, almost fanatical Nazi."
