André Bamberski is the raddest father ever.
First, the sad part. André’s daughter, Kalinka Bamberski, was raped and killed in 1982. André, as well as French authorities, believe the perpetrator to be Dr. Dieter Krombach – a German doctor that split André from his wife, then married her. Kalinka was found dead at Krombach’s house, in her bed. The NYT article’s got more details on Kalinka’s death. French investigators asked Krombach to come in for questioning but Krombach denied the request. Germany refused to extradite Krombach for a lack of evidence. Eventually, the charges were forgotten.
That, of course, isn’t the end of the story.
