Anneros Valensi was born in Falkenau, Silesia, East Germany, in 1938. In 1944 the family, mother with five young children,  was displaced due to World War II activities. After their return they had to live under Russian occupancy a cruel life of hunger and danger. In 1946 the Eastern population was evicted from their homeland and resettled in West Germany.

After the horror she had seen at the young age of six, she finally started to feel free now to explore the world and she did. In 1961 she moved to London, England to improve her English. While working there she met an American couple, who inspired her to visit America. She went to see the World Fair and became curious to learn more about the US. A year later she applied with Trans World Airlines to train as flight attendant, was hired and arrived in America in 1966.

Presently, she is working on her sequel for “WHERE is HOME?” How a Childhood in East Germany during World War II Shaped My Adult Life, her published memoir.
