The Sun and Her Stars:
Salka Viertel and Hitler’s Exiles
in the Golden Age of Hollywood

                  A Hollywood history.  A refugee tale.

A story of war, Hitler, and the Holocaust.

A love letter to Los Angeles.

Sound intriguing? Come hear author Donna Rifkind discuss her new book about the inspiring Los Angeles life of a heroic woman: a mother of three and an avant-garde artist who managed to thrive within the studio system, an immigrant turned proud American who fought against hate with kindness and compassion.
