On Wooden Wheels: The Memoir of Carla Nathans Schipper
Author: Stacey Goldring
"On Wooden Wheels" tells the true story of Carla Nathans Schipper, a Dutch woman who survived the Holocaust by concealing herself and her children. After the war, Carla confronted the emotional aftermath for herself and her daughters, remarried, left Europe for America-and again escaped concealment by refusing to hide her son, born with Down syndrome in a period when such children were condemned to live in the shadows. "On Wooden Wheels" moves with force and determination throughout Carla's remarkable life.
