Many children of the world's dictators are "in denial" of the atrocities committed by their parents, National Review senior editor Jay Nordlinger tells Newsmax TV.

"There's some dissenters, some rebels, some doubters — but mainly, you have loyalists and apologists," he told "The Hard Line" host Ed Berliner in an interview.

Nordlinger is the author of the new book, "Children of Monsters: An Inquiry Into the Sons and Daughters of Dictators."

The book examines the lives of the offspring of 20 of the world's most diabolical dictators of the past century.

Nordlinger referenced Adolf Eichmann's daughter-in-law, Carmen Bretin Lindemann, who recently defended the atrocities he developed as the Nazi's chief architect of the Final Solution, which led to the extermination of 6 million Jews.

Lindemann last month withdrew her candidacy for mayor of a village in Argentina amid an uproar created after she defended her father-in-law in a television interview. He was hung by Israel for his crimes.

"There's a lot of denial among these sons and daughters," Nordlinger told Berliner. "They're in denial, so to speak.

"I think they have to be, otherwise, they might go nuts — and some of them are nuts enough as it is."
