From Yellow Star To Pop Star

Dorit Oliver-Wolff

Dear friends,

My story is about how I saw the Holocaust as a five year old Jewish girl living for years in hiding, in Hungary. Fearing the Nazi soldiers who were determined to kill every Jew.
After the war I weighed three stones, lost all my hair and was too weak to stand up. singing kept me alive. I survived against all odds.
My story is a success story and the Holocaust is only one part of it. Having emigrated to Israel in 1948 my nomadic life started. I joined a dancing troupe in Istanbul and toured the Middle East in various seedy night clubs. I studied by day and danced at night.

A talent scout spotted me in Germany, (ironically), and that is where the rest of my life started. Tense, moving and inspirational - my remarkable story takes the reader through fear and horror to freedom and joy. It shows how the bravery and fortitude of one little Jewish girl helped her survive the Holocaust and become a star!
