His son tells Expressen that his father was bisexual and felt attracted to Hitler.
“He was truly in love with Hitler,” says Niklas Frank.
Today Niklas Frank was the only family who is still alive.
His father Hans Frank was hanged in 1946 for war crimes and crimes against humanity in connection with the death of hundreds of thousands of poles.
The mother died in 1959, after which brothers and sisters died one after another: brother Norman became an alcoholic, sister of Birgitta committed suicide when she was 46, and her eight-year-old son was lying beside me in bed beside her, and his brother Michael died of heart problems at the end of a long life under the sign of gluttony.
Niklas Frank previously worked as a journalist in the German newspaper Stern and has written several books, including “Father” (“Der Vater”), in which he condemned the father.
In an interview with Expressen it is a lot of detail and talks about how life was the child of a Nazi.
“Our family lived in incredible luxury, on the walls hung paintings of Leonardo da Vinci, we children have always received expensive gifts from those who came to visit and went to the best “Mercedes”. We thought Poland belonged to the Pope.”
But the problems in the Nazi house was also.
“The Pope was bisexual, and was attracted to Hitler, in addition, he had a mistress, and after 1942, he wanted to divorce mom. But she decided to fight, including sending their baby pictures Adolf Hitler Hitler forbade them to divorce”.
“My mother also had a sexual relationship with a best friend of the Pope, which later on the orders of Hitler were executed on Heinrich Himmler. Dad thought I was her son’s lover. It did not take me as a son and was often called “fremdi” (“stranger”)”.
Niklas Frank says that before he published his book, it was well received in Germany, even when he was told who his father was.
“A poor man once even gave me their food. I had solid advantages.”
But after the beginning of sales of the book had problems.
“My brothers and sisters hated me,” he says.
Today it is disturbed by extreme right-wing movements in Europe, and he doesn’t trust even their own people.
“We have not learned anything over the 12 Nazi years, we continue to be cowards, he says, and sighs. But we are world Champions in football.”
Grandfather was responsible for the deaths of over a million people
His grandfather was the dreaded commandant of Auschwitz Rudolf Hoess (Rudolf Höss).
Father was raised a Nazi, and he told my son the truth that his grandfather was responsible for the deaths of 1.1 million people.
Today, he completely renounced his father.
“If my grandfather had a grave, I would have spat on her,” says the grandson of the commandant Rainer Hess, 52.
Rainer’s grandfather Rudolf Hoess was the commandant of Auschwitz and was sentenced to death for crimes against humanity.

He was hanged opposite the camp crematorium on 16 April 1947.
Now, when Rayner sees a photograph of his grandfather hanging on the gallows, he feels satisfaction.
“I feel joy. I know he was hanged, and his life is over.”
To 15 years, Rainer did not even know that his grandfather was the commandant of the terrible.
One day his father lied to him when he asked a question, but a dreadful truth was revealed when Rainer was 15.
When the father, who was then working with seller Volvo in Gothenburg, was on a business trip, mom gave him some history books that were in the house, and the awakening was a real shock.
“It’s a feeling words cannot describe. Nobody wants to be the grandson of a serial killer,” he says.
Rainer Hoess left home and subsequently met the father only once he was 18.
“He hit me, but I fought back, and for the first time in my life I saw fear in his eyes. I had enough”.
He also met several times with his grandmother, the wife of commandant Hess Hedwig (Hedwig Höss).
“When she entered the room, immediately became very cold. It’s like she still was the wife of the commandant. It was like some kind of dictatorship. She always said Hessa never cry”.
But in 1989 the grandmother committed suicide in Washington in the United States.
“I’m sure she took cyanide capsules. Many times I have seen these capsules in her jewelry box, and she had a Rudolph hair, which she cut off before he was hanged, and their wedding rings,” said Rainer Hoess.
Now he’s a teacher, has written several books and leads students on tours of Auschwitz.
“Entering the house of my grandfather in Auschwitz, I never touch the stuff. So I prefer to handle the situation,” says Rainer Hess.
As the son of Governor-General Hans Frank, he is concerned about the rise of right-wing extremist forces in Europe.
“In France — Le Pen, in the Netherlands — Wilders, in Sweden, as far as I know, the right party “Swedish Democrats”. And in Germany we have NPD. They grow slowly, and it scares me,” says Hess.
