Overview

The descendants of such prominent Nazi officials as Hermann Göring, Hans Frank, and Heinrich Himmler reflect on their ongoing efforts to live with the dark legacies of their notorious ancestors, and to repent for their sins while struggling to accept their birthrights. For Niklas Frank (Godson of the Führer, himself), that means tirelessly researching his family legacy while traveling around Germany on a never-ending mission to discredit both his father Frank, and the Third Reich. Meanwhile, in addition to going into self-imposed exile in the Southwestern United States, Göring's great-niece Bettina and her brother have agreed to self-sterilization in order to ensure that the family name dies with them. As with the others whose family names immediately send chills down the spines of even casual history buffs, Niklas Frank and Bettina Göring must constantly weight the natural love a child has for his or her parents against the intense loathing of knowing the very people who loved and raised them were responsible for some of the most heinous atrocities ever committed against man.
