Holocaust Author and Lecturer Anne Lehmann Fox Passes Away at 90

At 12 years old, longtime KTA member Anne Fox was sent to England, where her brother had gone a year before, via the Kindertransport. Her experience growing up in Nazi Germany and being separated from her parents, whom she never saw again, served as inspiration for her first of many books, My Heart in a Suitcase.

The memoir was turned into a play which is performed in schools across the USA today. Anne attended local productions of the play, so students could meet her and ask questions.
