Goodreads asked Sandy Berman:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Sandy Berman In my work, as an archivist and museum curator at The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum in Atlanta, I interviewed countless Holocaust survivors who settled in the south prior to and immediately after World War II. Their experience was unique. I was intrigued by how survivors felt about living in the Jim Crow south. In Klara with a K, the main character grapples with the complex issues associated with being Jewish, a survivor and a proponent for civil rights.
