In Response to Re: National News - The Sensational Stories:
You are right; it would be very hard to be associated with a notorious person or family that made headlines for horrible things.. hard to remember but all of the bad people have families.. and it would be horrendous to have to deal with the people staring and pointing and talking about you and nothing you could do about it.

A while back there was a TV documentary called "Inheritance", a Steven Spielberg-sponsored program about the meeting between Monika Hertwig & Helen Jonas-rosenzwieg. Helen was a Polish Jew taken as a house servant by Amon Goeth, the SS Commandant played by Ralph Fiennes in "Shindler's List". Monika was Goeth's daughter, who knew nothing about her father's role in the Holocaust, as a child growing up. I don't believe she even had Goeth's name, because he was only engaged to her mother, but she said it was very hard to wrap her head around what she found out what he was, when she grew up. Added to that, he stole from the Nazis & was hanged, so she couldn't even confort herself with the idea that he was a good, loyal Nazi officer.
