“By the age of fourteen, Hannelore had lost her home and her citizenship, when the Nazis and their collaborators worked to erase every trace of Jewish life in Germany. From 1941 to 1945 she was a captive, moved around through five concentration camps and prisoner ghettos, until she was finally liberated by an American soldier. Her entire family had been murdered and she was the only one to survive the Holocaust.

As told through the lens of her first daughter Carolyn, this is the American immigrant story of resilience, hope, and cookies. A young woman who has lost everything is embraced by her adopted country, and through ingenuity, patience, and perseverance, discovers joyful ways to preserve her heritage and culture through baking.”
