    Biography My parents, both Jewish, grew up in Berlin, Germany during the 1930's.
    As children, they witnessed the rise of anti-Semitism in Nazi
    Germany under Hitler. Both families were forced to leave Germany
    in 1939 after the racist violence of Kristallnacht. My father was placed
    on a children's transport and sent to an all-girls boarding school
    in England that made it a policy as part of the war effort to enroll
    some Jewish boys. My mother fled with her family to Shanghai, where
    they opened a Kosher restaurant in the Jewish section of that city -
    a ghetto sealed off from the rest of Shanghai and strictly controlled
    by the Japanese military.My parents, both Jewish, grew up in Berlin, Germany during the 1930's.
