Malevolent Commandant. Looking back I was gratified of how my father was looked up to by everyone. Although now I know they were probably too terrified to do anything else

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Malevolent Commandant When I was a young child my father was my entire world. He was an adoring, compassionate and sympathetic dad, someone who you would desire. I appreciated and respected my dad more than anyone else. When I look back I have fond memories of when he taught me to ride my bike. It was a frightening situation but he supported me and I felt secure and protected. He was a dedicated and devoted man who put his family as his first priority. Although now when I reflect back on my memories of him my heart begins to tremble extremely fast and my head fills with the images of vindictiveness he was responsible for.

I did not know what was going on but the arguments made me more suspicious that something was not right. In August 1941, with my father and his commandants huddled around a small television screen, I discovered the truth about my malevolent father. Quietly I crept in to see what they were watching. On the screen were images of the same orphan children I could see from my window entering a chamber. They did not leave the other side. It was then I knew my father was not building a better Germany.
