Author Reading | Alice’s Book: How the Nazis Stole My Grandmother's Cookbook (online)


When the Anschluss happens, Alice Urbach, a renowned chef and cookery book writer, is forced to flee Vienna for England. Returning to the ruins of Vienna in the late 1940s, she discovers that her bestselling cookbook is being published under a different name. Karina Urbach tells the story of a family torn apart by the Nazi regime, of a woman who, with her unwavering passion for cooking, survived the horror and losses of the Holocaust to begin a new life in America, and of a fight for restitution that lasted eight decades. This is a conversation with Urbach about her grandmother’s life, the journey of reclaiming her grandmother’s work, and the larger picture of restitution and what it can include.
