Author(s): Ruth Klein
After their liberation, Ruth Klein's parents were brought first to the Displaced Person Camps in Germany, and then sent to the United States. They were traumatized, starving, and impoverished-but they were among the survivors. Once in America, however, their struggles didn't end. In Surviving the Survivors, Klein shares what it was like to grow up with parents who were permanently damaged by the effects of the war. Full of both humor and unfathomable tragedy, this is her story of how, ultimately, her upbringing gave her a keen appreciation for the value of life-and made her, like her parents, a survivor.
