From a Wine Barrel and Chicken Coops to Silicon on Sapphire
Memories of a Woodbine Holocaust Survivor

by G. Eugene Gottlieb ©2018, Paperback, ISBN: 978-1-935232-95-7, 310 pp
 

Child Holocaust survivor, immigrant, farm boy, St. Louis Cardinals fan, Ph.D., scientist, international consultant—G. Eugene Gottlieb was only five years old when he witnessed the horrors of Kristallnacht in a small German town, Venningen. He saw his father arrested and experienced the family’s exile from their home where his ancestors had lived for generations, since the 1700s.

 

He and his parents were then forced to leave Germany, immigrating to the U.S. in February 1939 and eventually settling in Woodbine, New Jersey, a community that had welcomed immigrants since the late 1800s. After WWII the Gottliebs had to cope with revelations about the loss of their many family members in death camps.

 

 

Despite the trauma he and his family had endured in Germany and after,

they lived in the present, putting their past behind them and prospering in their new homeland. Readers will not only enjoy Dr. Gottlieb’s memoir, especially his boyhood adventures in Woodbine, but also will be inspired by his journey from Germany to Woodbine to Princeton.
