Becoming Alice is a true story about a very young Jewish girl who survives the Holocaust and starts a new life in America

Six-year-old Ilse watches Nazi troops march down her street in Vienna, not knowing the tyranny of the holocaust will soon follow. With innocence and bewilderment she sees prejudice turn into a threat of death for her Jewish family.

Ilse survives a harrowing escape that ends in Portland, Oregon. Traumatized by these events and being different from other children as a refugee, she struggles to fit into the American landscape. She suffers even more distress because of the discord between her troubled family: an overbearing father, stressed mother, and rebellious brother. Ilse, now called Alice, refuses to become a victim of the holocaust and takes a path to a better place.
