About the author

Olga Levy Drucker

Olga Levy Drucker was born in Germany in 1927, but her life was disrupted by the events in Europe in the 1930s. Her mother arranged for her to be part of the Kindertransport, through which 10,000 Jewish children were sent to live with English families. After World War II, she made her way to New York, in 1945, where she was reunited with her family.
