Summary

More
Ruth Gruener was a hidden child during the Holocaust. At the end of the war, she and her parents were grateful to be free. But their struggles as displaced people had just begun.

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.
