He was involved in atrocities in the Ukraine and led an SS training camp close to Prague.  Her grandmother was part of the organization Todt in Poland, managing forced labor.  Franziska is a medical doctor and part of a national committee in Germany to work through the history of radiology in Germany, as radiology was used for forced sterilizations and tuberculosis screenings.
