Alexander was born in 1927 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. When his father lost his job in 1937, the family moved to Amsterdam, Holland. They were part of a tremendous influx of German-Jewish refugees to that country during the Nazis' rise to power, and Alexander's family was deported to Westerbork. He thinks that their being in Belsen early was an advantage, and details their life in the concentration camp. Alexander's father, mother, and brother also survived through their liberation. He explains what it means for him to be Jewish. Alexander became a U.S. citizen in 1952 and details the jobs he had and his experiences in the U.S. as a Jew. He obtained his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry and later met his future wife.
