ASK YOURSELVES “WHO BUILT THE NAZI GAS CHAMBERS THAT TOOK THE LIVES OF MILLIONS OF JEWS?”
Pfeiffer was shocked to “discover the terrible family secret that her paternal grandfather, an engineer, helped build the Auschwitz gas chambers. It took weeks for her to come to terms with that horrific realization. Then in 2012 she traveled to Auschwitz with her church and addressed a group of Holocaust survivors. “I wanted to speak the words that my grandfather never spoke, say the things he never said. He never asked for forgiveness. When he came back, he told his family what he had done and said, ‘Don’t you dare speak of this, nobody must know.’ And so the whole story remained a secret,” explained Pfeiffer.
