The Story of Alabama Holocaust Survivor, Henry Stern.
As Julius Hagedorn, a Jewish merchant in Opelika, Alabama, began to see the storms of World War II gathering over Europe in the 1930’s, he set about helping the family of his young nephew, Henry Stern, escape the Holocaust just in time for a new life in America. We’ll Meet Again celebrates Henry’s growing up in a small Southern town, at first overwhelmed by the welcoming crowd of thousands gathered to greet the family stepping off the train at the Opelika Depot, then on to a journey through life that held surprises at every turn.
