from Nazi Nightmare

to American Dream"

a Holocaust Memoir written by Survivor, Ben Lesser, 

and edited by Joanne,

is now available through




One of the highlights of the 2016 IAJGS Conference in Seattle, where I was honored to be a presenter, was meeting one of my heroes, Randy Schoenberg. This dauntless attorney made it possible for Holocaust Survivor, Maria Altman, to regain ownership of her family's Nazi-looted portrait, "Woman in Gold." Randy's out-takes from the film, and personal anecdotes about his experiences during the court-case, were not only informative, but also, entertaining! Thanks, Randy!
