5. Sounds like my grandmother.

Us grandkids always joked that her FBI file was probably several inches thick.

She was always proud of her family, especially her younger brother who had been in the SS. And one of her favorite possessions was an old copy of Mein Kampf.

But as she got older (she was in her 90s at this point) she got leukemia and wasn't able to care for herself. My father and my aunt hired a home heathcare aide for her, who happened to be a young black woman. This upset Mutti, who voiced her opinion to dad - in German of course. Then she found out that the young lady had spent 5 years in Europe and spoke German herself (which was one of the reasons my dad and my aunt hired her) and understood everything she had said. Then she found out that the young lady also liked the same soap operas Mutti did, which finally got Mutti come around.
