Agathe’s Stories

A Child’s Journey from Germany to America


Meet Agathe, an extraordinary young Jewish girl, as she tells us about her quiet rural town in 1930s Germany, her neighbors and family, and how their world was torn apart by the Nazis’ rise to power. From the horror of Kristallnacht, to the long journey on the Trans-Siberian railroad, to a new life in San Francisco, California, Agathe’s commitment to recalling the past, as well as her enduring lust for life, shines through this memoir. Agathe Glaser’s writing allows us to vividly experience this time of wrenching upheaval and unexpected adventure through the eyes of a twelve-year-old girl.
