What do a 75-year-old Los Angeles-based rocket engineer and an eleven-year-old schoolgirl from Austria have in common? Not much at first glance, but Arthur and Lilly influenced each other’s lives in a remarkable way.
In 1939, Arthur‘s Jewish parents sent their son abroad on a Kindertransport (“children’s transport”), hoping to save him from the Holocaust. The separation is a traumatic experience for the ten-year-old. Although he is rescued (from Austria via France to the USA), his family is murdered by the Nazis. Sixty-five years later, during a visit to his former apartment in Vienna, Austria, Arthur Kern meets eleven-year-old Lilly Maier. A decisive encounter for both, which not only shapes Lilly’s further life, but also leads to Arthur receiving a long-lost legacy from his parents. This moving tale chronicles two lives that fatefully cross paths, giving immensely knowledgeable insight into an unknown Holocaust story: the rescue of hundreds of Jewish children to America on a Kindertransport. “Arthur and Lilly” will be available for sale and signing at the event.
