Ann Klein was born in Eger, Hungary in 1921, the youngest of three children. Her father was a prominent banker in the town, and her mother was the president of a Jewish charity organization. Ann's family were forced to live in a ghetto and were then deported to Auschwitz, where her parents were both killed. She was force-marched to camp Ravensbrück and transferred to Leipzig after two weeks. Ann was liberated by the American Army in Wurzen, Germany. She moved to the United States because her sweetheart, Sandy, asked her to come to the United States and marry him. They had three children. Ann then details her life in Louisville and the struggles she faced in her family life.
