In this memoir Wilhelm Verwoerd writes about coming to terms with the legacy of his grandfather, former National Party Prime Minister HF Verwoerd, assassinated in 1966. He reads old diaries belonging to his grandmother, Betsie Verwoerd, talks to friends and colleagues who suffered under apartheid, and to his mother about her experiences of the family.
