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.
