There Be Monsters



I am posting an article (with her permission from another site,,  of a writer whose grandparents were residents of Lithuania during World War II. Like me, she became curious about her family’s past and their conduct during this difficult time and started digging. She came up with facts that turned out not at all what she had been told, and the details of the stories of her grandparents were kept a secret from her, until she had the courage to go there and find out for herself.
