        2017-02-28: Conversations with My Grandchildren

    The presenter’s mother has written a book, Conversations with My Grandchildren, which is the story of a Jewish girl and her family who fled to South America during the Nazi persecution of the Jews in Germany. It describes her experiences adapting to the hardships of being an immigrant at that time, and the devastating effect these events had on her parents’ lives and well-being, as their families were not able to escape and were exterminated in concentration camps. Some of the stories are tragic, others funny, but all of them show the ability of a person to face adversity and emerge as a confident, outgoing person who embraces life.
