Author Information

GISELLE K. JAKOBS is the granddaughter of Josef Jakobs. She has a doctorate in palaeontology, which has given her strong research skills that were indispensable in unearthing and tying together the threads of this complex story. A subsequent master's degree in theology and experience as a pastoral associate tempered the scientist with some humanity. Giselle currently works as a facilitator, leading reconciliation workshops between Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants around the Indian Residential School legacy in Canada. The ability to bring opposing views to the table (scientist/theologian, victim/oppressor) has prepared her well to tell the very personal story of her grandfather - a German spy executed by an English firing squad.
