From Ungvar to Beverly Hills: One Survivor's Journey

Reception and Book Launch with Author Alice Neuman Schoenfeld

Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at 4:00pm


“Run! Hide!” someone was shouting from the street. “The Germans are coming!”   So begins Alice Neuman Schoenfeld’s remarkable tale of survival, FROM UNGVAR TO BEVERLY HILLS

Alice and her family spent more than two years running and hiding. Her story—full of drama, tension, and insight—is a testimony to the human will to survive.  With the startling perspective of a young girl caught up in events larger than she can grasp, Alice’s memoir brings the reader to wartime Europe, when the people closest to Alice made life-or-death decisions every day, and then to the Displaced Persons Camps in Germany, where Alice became a Zionist and fell in love.
Join Liebe Geft, Director of the Museum of Tolerance, for a conversation with author Alice Neuman Schoenfeld as she shares her inspiring story of emerging from one of history’s darkest chapters and forging a new life in a new land.
