"When Time Stopped" By Ariana Neumann
In her bestselling memoir, When Time Stopped: A Memoir of My Father’s War and What Remains, Ariana Neumann offers a moving story of personal discovery and a portrait of living, dying, and surviving in war-torn Berlin. Part detective story, part epic family memoir, Neumann’s book dives into the secrets of her father’s past – years spent hiding in plain sight in war-torn Berlin, the annihilation of dozens of family members in the Holocaust, and the courageous choice to build anew.
Ariana Neumann was born and grew up in Venezuela. She previously was involved in publishing, worked as a foreign correspondent for Venezuela’s The Daily Journal and her writing also appeared in The European. When Time Stopped is her first book.
