When Time Stopped: A Memoir of My Father’s War and What Remains
by Ariana Neuman

When Time Stopped: A Memoir of My Father's War and What Remains,

Join our Community Resource Specialist, Libby, for a bi-monthly book discussion that will challenge readers to contemplate difficult subjects in a supported environment.

A Venezuelan foreign correspondent describes the harrowing early experiences of her father, an only survivor of their Jewish-Czechoslovakian family, who hid from the Gestapo in plain sight before starting over in South America.

In this remarkably moving memoir, Ariana Neumann dives into the secrets of her father’s past: years spent hiding in plain sight in war-torn Berlin, the annihilation of dozens of family members in the Holocaust, and the courageous choice to build anew.
