Description: What’s it like to be the son or daughter of a dictator, bearing a name synonymous with oppression, terror, and evil? Jay Nordlinger set out to answer that question. He found that some of these “children of monsters” are absolute loyalists, some have doubts and some even become full-blown defectors. These children lead very different lives but share one thing in common: they have been dealt a very, very unusual hand. Jay tells us all about it today.
