After the Nazis arrived in my hometown of Vienna, Austria, my parents sent me to The Netherlands via the Kindertransport. The Germans followed, and I experienced harrowing captures, daring escapes, tortuous hiding and heartbreaking losses, but also the kindness of strangers. After the liberation, I fought in Israel’s War for Independence. I moved to America and earned a PhD in Aeronautical Engineering. Be DETERMINED to do whatever it takes to overcome a difficult problem. Be DETERMINED to PROCEED from any challenging situation and never give up hope.
