Moritz Pfeiffer, 29, a historian based at the SS museum at Wewelsburg Castle in northern Germany, took the unprecedented step of asking his grandparents what they did in the Third Reich, and then fact-checking their statements. His book "My Grandfather in the War 1939 - 1945: Reminiscences and Facts Compared" has just been published. It is based on an interview Pfeiffer conducted with his grandfather in 2005, originally for a personal family history.
