Granddaughter of Kommandant Amos Goetz, Portrayed in the Film Schindler’s List The Boxser Diversity Initiative and The Florida Holocaust Museum Partnered Events
Boxser Diversity Initiative in partnership with The Florida Holocaust Museum will host two interactive discussions featuring International Best Selling Author, Jennifer Teege on Tuesday, March 22, at 6:30 PM at The Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg with a virtual live stream option, and Wednesday, March 23 at 6:15 PM at Temple Beth Sholom in Sarasota, Florida. Both events will be held in person with limited seating, following COVID protocols. Masks are required.
My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me, an international bestseller, is a book born of a shocking discovery: At age 38, married with two children, Jennifer Teege picked up a book by chance at Hamburg’s main library and discovered that her grandfather was the brutal Nazi kommandant of the Plaszow concentration camp, portrayed so memorably by Ralph Fiennes in the film Schindler’s List.
These discussions are free and open to the public. For more information please visit The Boxser Initiative Website, www.boxserdiversityinitiative.org or The Florida Holocaust Museum’s website: www.thefhm.org/events.
This event is sponsored by: The Community Foundation of Sarasota and Florida Humanities, with community supporters The Jewish Federation of Sarasota and The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH): St. Petersburg and Manasota chapters.
