In war-ravaged Europe, they waited for paperwork for a chance to come to America. Once they arrived in Brooklyn, they began to build a new life, but spoke little English. Ruth started at a new school and tried to make friends, but she continued to fight nightmares and flashbacks of her time during World War II.
The family’s perseverance is a classic story of the American dream, but it also illustrates the difficulties that millions of immigrants face in the aftermath of trauma.
