Someday You Will Understand: My Father’s Private World War II
Nina Wolff Feld explores the contents of a green box her father, Walter Wolff, left behind and discovers the chronicle of her father’s involvement in World War ll. The contents touch far more than merely her family; punctuated with photographs and supporting documentation, Feld strings together the events that shaped history with a personal touch.
The narrative starts with the affluent Wolff family narrowly escaping from the Nazis in a harrowing sixteen month odyssey that carries them to America aboard the ill-fated Navemar. A few years later, Walter returns to Europe in uniform, trained by the U.S. Army to capitalize on his unique Jewish heritage and language skills.
In the aftermath of an Allied victory, Walters’ assignment divides his time between two primary objectives: to secure help for the Displaced Persons, the Jewish Refugees; and to hunt down Nazi war criminals. Armed with sketchy information and a list compiled by Simon Wiesenthal, Walter sifts through POW camps and interrogates those responsible for sending millions to their deaths. His extraordinary journey grants us new insight into how a government run amok disenfranchised an entire generation.
