"The message - EVERYBODY HAS GOT THE SAME RIGHT TO LIFE AND LIVING - is more important now than ever before!"

Dorit Oliver-Wolff has led a remarkable life. Born a Hungarian Jew, she danced in front of the future king of Yugoslavia at just four years old; by six years old she was in hiding from the German soldiers who were rounding up and transporting her fellow Jews to concentration camps around Europe.In her first book, From Yellow Star to Pop Star, Dorit recounts how she and her mother survived years of terror, with narrow escapes from capture and bombing raids plus betrayal by those she thought were her friends.The Holocaust is just part of Dorit's incredible story. After the war, stateless and without papers, she joined a touring dance group in order to be permitted to leave the country. She studied by day and sang and danced in seedy night clubs by night until her life was turned around when a talent scout spotted her and she got a record deal. Almost overnight Dorit found herself on stage singing to the very German soldiers who were a threat to her survival just a few years previously!
