What Else She Said

[I knew] maybe too much [about the war while growing up.] One of my father's college roommates was part of the Nuremberg legal staff and sent photographs from the Nuremberg trials and for whatever reasons, my dad showed them to me and to my cousins. And they haunted me... I remember not only the refugees coming to my grandmother's kitchen, but I remember seeing black and white glossies of the camps and of what the armed forces found. And it haunted me. And I think that's part of the sense of justice is making sure that that kind of prejudice and destruction wasn't part of our family or our lives.
