In Why My Father Died, Kahn tells the story of her father, Klaus Barbie, who was tried and convicted of war crimes committed during the Holocaust. Kahn was only nine years old when her father was imprisoned, and she never had the chance to ask him about his experiences. Years later, after he had been released from prison, she traveled to Europe to visit him. During her visit, she learned about the atrocities her father had committed, and she also had to confront her family's role in his imprisonment and his crimes. This book is an intimate and heartbreaking examination of the effects of the Holocaust on the victims and their families.; 8vo; 238 pages; TBC FSA.
