INGE AURERBACHER: I AM A STAR: CHILD OF THE HOLOCAUST

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Tuesday, September 11, 2012 - 9:30am

Inquiry welcomes writer INGE AURERBACHER to talk about two of her books: FINDING DR.SCHATZ : THE DISCOVERY OF STREPTOMYCIN AND THE LIFE IT SAVED and I AM A STAR: CHILD OF THE HOLOCAUST. Inge Aurerbacher has led a singularly dramatic and inspiring life. As a child, she witnessed  the horrors of the Kristallnacht and later was imprisoned in the Terezin Concentration Camp. There she contracted tuberculosis, which was to haunt her long after the camp was liberated and she moved to America. As an adult, Inge tracked down the man who developed streptomycin that later treated her tuberculosis, Dr. Schatz, and wrote a touching and unique dual autobiography with that legendary research scientist. Tune in tonight and listen to Inge’s amazing life story of survival against all odds and how she remained positive despite everything that happened to her.

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
