Summary Living with the legacy of World War II. In this special Insight forum, we bring you the descendants of the decision makers of the Second World War. Seventy years after the end of the war, we ask: what is it like to live in the shadow of Stalin, the Nazis or the imperial Japanese military?In 1939, Hitler appointed Hans Frank as Governor General of Occupied Poland. Frank forced millions of Jews into ghettos and used civilians for forced labour. Six extermination camps were also under his direct jurisdiction. His son Niklas violently rejects his father's legacy. He even carries a picture of dead Hans Frank as a reminder that his father's crimes - and life - have ended.Jacob Jugashvili is the great-grandson of Joseph Stalin. The former leader of the Soviet Union was responsible for the deaths of millions but Jacob admires his values and what he stood for. George Gronjowski was 12 when the Nazis invaded his hometown in Poland. He was a prisoner in Hans Frank's jurisdiction but managed to survive the concentration camps. He has been living in Australia since he was 21 but never spoke to his children about the Holocaust as he didn't want them growing up with a chip on their shoulder. Deborah Ziegler's grandfather Adek Stein escaped the Nazi extermination camp in Treblinka, Poland. Deborah says she thinks about the Holocaust almost every day and it has helped shape who she is today
