Overview
“Run! Hide!” someone was shouting from the street. “The Germans are coming!” So begins Alice Neuman Schoenfeld’s remarkable tale of survival, From Ungvár to Beverly Hills: One Survivor’s Story. Indeed, Alice and her family spent more than two years of her childhood running and hiding. Her story—full of drama, tension, and insight—is a testimony to the human will to survive against all odds. 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, a time and place where the people close to her made life-or-death decisions every day. Equally enlightening and engaging are her descriptions of day-to-day life in Germany’s Displaced Persons Camps, where she became a Zionist and fell in love. With humor, integrity, and grace, Alice shares her inspiring and moving story of emerging from one of history’s darkest chapters and forging a new life in a new land.
