    This was a very informative presentation. I am a German born naturalised American (1943)and child of the era. Now I am finding out just how many were able to escape and start againe in Hollywood of all places. Most were fortunate enough to go into the Motion picutre industry coming from a symilar background. They saw the writing on the wall and were able to get out in time. My family had to wait till the liberation in 45. It is a credit to the tenacity of human nature and the credit of the land of the free who took them in.

    This was an amazing film, and answered so many questions for me. I was born in 1941 and so I’m very familiar with most of the people who were featured.

    Thank you so much for allowing us to have a greater understanding of what these people went through and what they ultimately accomplished in America!

Especially Torquay which has so much going for it and is being visibly neglected and “dumbed down”. Currently visitors LOL when they hear it is called the English Riviera and that reaction could be turned round under your good influence and expertise.

    Oh my gosh Becky. I remember you talking about this before, and I never would have thought that I would have known who her family was, but I am almost positive that her parents went to college with one of my sisters, a couple of years ahead of me. It’s always interesting to discover those unexpected connections.
