Dr. Michael Good
Dr. Michael Good, a family physician from Connecticut, became interested in Holocaust history in 1999 when he accompanied his parents, both Holocaust survivors, to Vilnius, Lithuania. During this trip, his mother related her story of survival and spoke of a mysterious German army officer who had commanded her slave labor camp and who she claimed to have protected her, her parents and over 1,250 Jewish slave laborers from the murderous intent of the Nazis. Following this trip, Dr. Good set out to find this enigmatic officer and to understand why a German army officer would have acted so benevolently at a time when his countrymen were committing atrocities on a previously unthinkable scale. In his book "The Search for Major Plagge," Dr. Good shares his parents' stories of survival and describes his search for the man who saved his mother's family.
