Bronstein's Children by Jurek Becker
"Bronstein's Children is about the son of a Jewish survivor from World War II who holds his former torturer captive in his summer house. It's about guilt and how one judges and deals with crimes that loved ones committed. The controversial questions the author is dealing with fascinated me a lot and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in WWII or moral dilemmas."
