Item Description

There is an interesting story to tell about all of us and our families. Crack Between the Worlds is such a story. It has universal appeal because, through this family, we have a mirror that reflects our own ancestors---and the courage, unyielding tenacity, and occasional bouts of luck that must have occurred in a somewhat similar fashion, to bring each of us into the world . The story is best summed up by the words of Johanna, the family matriarch, who, on the day Nazi soldiers ravaged her town said to her granddaughter in response to the child’s desire to simply give up, “You have to care, Ella. That’s what this is all about, you know---to care even when it hurts. To have the strength and courage, my little one, to care even when your mind and body want nothing more than to run away.”
My life began in Europe, behind the iron curtain. When I was nine years old, everything changed when my mother risked our lives to escape and bring me to America. The losses of country, family and self-identity were balanced by kindness from people in every one of the many places my life has taken me.
My training is in psychology, teaching, art and history. This, combined with a lifetime of extraordinary experiences, make me a passionate believer in people’s ability to grow and evolve into the highest visions we hold of ourselves. They have also given me a deep appreciation for those who came before us, who survived the impossible to ensure that life continues.
