Summary
Rita Gabis comes from a family of Eastern European Jews and Lithuanian Catholics. She was close to her Lithuanian Catholic grandfather as a child and knew one version of his past; prior to immigration he had been a resistance fighter against the Russians, whose brutal occupation of Lithuania destroyed thousands of lives before Hitler's army swept in. But it took only one simple question to add a horrifying dimension to her family story. From 1941 to 1943, her Catholic grandfather had been Chief of Security Police under the Gestapo in the Lithuanian town of Svencionys, near the killing field of Poligon, where 8000 Jews were murdered over three days in the autumn of 1941
