Event Type

Young Historian Lilly Maier, who has been a guest speaker with the KTA on several occasions, will present her newly published English edition of her book Arthur and Lilly. The Girl and the Holocaust-Survivor. The book is a biography of Kind Arthur Kern, and also tells the story of how their friendship affected both of their lives. Lilly met Arthur when she was 11 when he, a retired aircraft engineer living in Los Angeles, came to her apartment in Vienna, where he had lived as a child before fleeing the country in 1939. This is a fascinating look at a little recognized part of the Kindertransport experience, the 200 children sent to France and then to the USA.

The event is hosted by the National Association of Jewish Child Holocaust Survivors and Hidden Child. A light luncheon will be served.
