*Ellis Island Medal of Honor Award Winner. * *NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY 1996 CHOICE, BOOKS FOR THE TEENAGE READER* Kansas State Reading Circle Choice, 1996/97 * This is the story of a young Jewish girl who survived a concentration camp and came to the United States after the war to live the life that many like Anne Frank never survived to experience. Inges second book, Beyond The Yellow Star To America, carries the reader into Inges world of an immigrant in 1945 America at once dealing with her own psychological and physiological growing up and the real, external world of being an outsider to American culture. With vibrantly clear images, Inge tells her story through a series of sequential vignettes reinforced by many photographs from her collection. The pre-teen, teenage and adult reader will immediately understand her problems dealing with group acceptance, self-esteem, and peer pressure; however, her relentless drive to succeed and wonderfully close relationship with her parents will take an understanding of her special scars from having been totally degraded when a child of The Holocaust. Following a brief historical background, we arrive with Inge in New York Harbor in 1946, aboard the Marine Perch, an American troop transport ship, and travel with her through her lifes turning points against the 1940s, 50s and 60s settings of New Yorks East Side, Brooklyn, and Queens. We revisit Europe with her. The hot and cold factions of her Americanized relatives; the resolve of her parents to achieve in the American economic mainstream in spite of the physical odds against them during their first steps to independence; and Inges private on-going physical nightmare fills the reader with pride in the positive qualities of the human spirit and its determination to survive. But, Inges American years are not just survival years as is often the story of Holocaust victims. Her resulting personal, psychological fuel from the past drives her dynamism and ideals of today for the betterment of Mankind. She is an activist for humankind. She is both an esteemed chemist/medical researcher and an accomplished motivational public speaker for brotherhood through education and communication, against bigotry and other manipulative tactics that divide humanity into isolated groups. She resides in New York.
