In August 1942, she was deported to Terezin with her parents and beloved doll Marlene. Of the 15,000 children sent there, few survived. A chemist by profession, Inge has spoken in countries around the world. She has a special relationship with Staten Island’s P.S. 22 choir, which has sung two of her poems, including at the U.N. International Holocaust Remembrance program. She is the author of 6 books, including I am a Star: Child of the Holocaust.

During her talk, two of Inge’s poems will be read aloud by students from the Hebrew Academy of Staten Island and Wagner College.
