Returning to the Villa (Clip 2 of 3)

In this second clip associated with the Inheritance lesson plan, Monika Hertwig and Helen Jonas visit the villa where Nazi Amon Goeth, Monika's father, enslaved Helen during the Holocaust. Monika and Helen talk about Monika's mother's voluntary ignorance to Goeth's cruelty. Students should discuss what choices were open to Ruth. What might have happened if she would have made different choices?
