Freud described the sinister (unheimlich) as a contradictory experience where the uncanny  appears  familiar to us and what is known and familiar seems strange. A grand-daughter discovers that her grandmother’s past was very different from what she had been told. Could it be that in times of war  morality  is submitted to survival?
