Fred Amram, "We're in America Now: A Survivor's Stories" (Holy Cow! Press, 2016)


In this lively memoir, We're In America Now: A Survivor's Stories (Holy Cow! Press, 2016), Fred Amram offers a series of stories documenting his childhood in 1930s Germany through his coming-of-age in New York City, after his family's successful immigration to the United States in 1939. With clarity and a touch of humor, Amram provides well-crafted portraits of family members and a vivid sense of what it meant to be a child in Nazi Germany and a refugee in World War II America and beyond.
