Quick French Question

Is "les péchés du père" a good equivalent of the English phrase "the sins of the father", or would something less literal be used? The context in this case is not a religious but more of a sociological one, where modern people feel guilty for crimes or atrocities perpetrated by previous generations, if that makes a difference.
