Out of Hiding: A Holocaust Survivor’s Journey to America

Ruth Gruener was a hidden child during the Holocaust. At the end of the war, she and her parents were overjoyed to be free. But their struggles as displaced people had just begun. In war-ravaged Europe, they waited for paperwork for a chance to come to America. Once they arrived in Brooklyn, they began to build a new life, but spoke little English. Ruth started at a new school and tried to make friends — but continued to fight nightmares and flashbacks of her time during World War II.

This is a gripping and human account of a survivor's journey forward with timely connections to refugee and immigrant experiences worldwide today. The family's perseverance is a classic story of the American dream, but also illustrates the difficulties that millions of immigrants face in the aftermath of trauma. With a foreward by Alan Gratz, best-selling author of Refugee, this is an important story that reminds young readers that the impact of war lingers long after it's over.
