Lore Segal, born Lore Groszmann in Vienna, March 8, 1928, escaped the Nazis when she was ten years old with five hundred other children on an experimental transport to test whether the Nazis would allow a trainful of Jewish children to cross the border. In England, Lore was placed in a succession of foster homes. She is the author of Shakespeare’s Kitchen, Her First American, and Other People’s Houses. In October 2006, Segal was elected a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. [2007]
