Join author Bonnie Suchman as she discusses her new book Stumbling Stones. Based on a true story, Alice Heppenheimer was born into a prosperous German Jewish family at the turn of the twentieth century. Alice was a woman ahead of her time, pursuing a fashion career and ignoring the growing Nazi threat to Jews. She could not imagine a Germany where simply being Jewish was an existential threat. But when she could no longer look away, she faced the horrifying realization that it might be too late to escape.
