"I was born in Germany to Holocaust survivors. My parents met and fell in love in Auschwitz. After the war, we were sent to Toledo, Ohio. I was like an alien from another planet. I endured anti-Semitism and a seriously dysfunctional family. Were my parents the way they were because of the Holocaust or was that who they really were? My two younger brothers were completely insane. I escaped."
