I want to stop the curse that's been haunting my family ever since, for the sake of myself and that of my own children.' Hoess is no longer in contact with his father, brother, aunts and cousins, who all call him a traitor.Strangers often look at him with distrust when he tells them about his grandfather - 'as if I could have inherited his evil.'
