Author of highly acclaimed Holocaust-related book available for Atlanta interviews

WASHINGTON, D.C., Jan. 4, 2017 — Dina Gold, who recounts in a highly acclaimed book her legal journey to claim the stately Berlin building once home to her family’s fur business, will appear in a Jan. 9 program in Atlanta on historical German fashion and is available for interviews either in person or on the telephone.

Gold penned “Stolen Legacy: Theft and the Quest for Justice at Krausenstrasse 17/18, Berlin,” which was first released in 2015 and then updated and expanded in paperback in late November 2016. In 1990, shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Gold marched into a German government ministry at Krausenstrasse 17/18 and declared, “I’ve come to claim my family’s building.” And so began her legal struggle.

“Stolen Legacy,” published by Ankerwycke, the trade publisher of the American Bar Association, is considered the first book detailing the successful claim of a building seized by the Nazis. Marvin Kalb, senior advisor to the Pulitzer Center and former CBS network correspondent, called the book “an exceptional adventure in Holocaust literature …a story everyone should read.” E. Randol Schoenberg, an attorney and key character in the film “Woman in Gold,” described “Stolen Legacy” as “a meticulous and finely written account …with all the twists and turns one would expect from a fictional detective story — but it is all true.”

Gold, a former BBC investigative reporter and television producer, now lives in Washington, D.C. She will be in Atlanta in connection with the #CanYouFashionIt, a program focusing on the past and future of the Jewish impact on the Berlin fashion scene and beyond.

The fashion program will be at 7 p.m., on Jan. 9 at the German Cultural Center Atlanta. For more information on the program and its participants, including Gold, please click here.
