Summary and Info
After World War II the Girls Club of Brooklyn, New York, became home and safe haven to a small group of young women, orphaned in the Holocaust, whose stories represent the experiences of tens of thousands of child survivors. This book follows them from childhood to the present as they, contrary to early predictions, built new and successful lives in America. In old age the women, once again, are defying bleak expectations.
