Is it possible to draw a line under history, particularly when that history involves our families? If we accept that there are certain
essential things about the past that cannot be spoken of, does that impact us and the generations that follow? If we choose to
delve into that history, are we prepared to face the consequences?
These are among the issues taken up by The Pendulum, an autobiographical account of a Brazilian-born granddaughter who faces each of these questions, and eventually finds that she has no choice but to look into her family’s past and the part it played in National Socialism and the SS.
With this book, Lindahl demonstrates why, within the vast majority of families seventy years after the end of the Second World War, the painful work of facing the past has only just begun.
