Film Director and best-selling Novelist Robert H. Lieberman takes us on an engrossing journey to meet the “Americanized” kids who grew up in 1940s and 50s Kew Gardens, an “immigrant village” in the heart of NYC, where German was the first language.  Come along for the ride as filmmaker spirals in to finally return to the place he fled as a young man. You’ll be fascinated to meet these children of refugees and survivors. They include personalities such as TV’s Jerry Springer, Comedian Robert Schimmel, Josh Brand (creator of “Northern Exposure” and “St. Elsewhere”), Rona Eliot (Today Show host), and many other dynamic individuals who continue to enrich our culture.
