This book 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, 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. In 1963, due to the political situation in Chile, the family decided to emigrate to the United States, where they had to once more, adapt to a new life. This book is dedicated to her grandchildren, the purpose being that these conversations will give them insight into the woman she has become, and to see that with a positive outlook, endurance and hope, one can achieve success and happiness, despite experiencing hardships. 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.
