Born in January 1928, Dina Souchotinsky-Klayman was 12 when Hitler sent his troops into Belgium following the outset of World War II.
The invasion on May 10, 1940, started her family on a seven-month journey across France, Spain and Portugal, on the way to the relative safety of England.
Dina Klayman recently completed a biography about her father and World War II memories, and she’s seeking a publisher to print the book called “Escaping to Freedom in the Eye of a Hurricane.”
In the years before the war, Dina’s father, Voulf Souchotinsky, turned in many spies to the Belgian authorities, and he was active in getting German Jews over the border so they could escape to unoccupied countries in the west.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Rob works as the Clinic Director of a reversing Diabetes clinic in Sherman Oaks. He resides in Calabasas, CA, not far from his two grown kids who are the inspiration of his life, since he lost his dad when he was only three.
Rob started writing poetry in his teens. Most of his early writing was inspired by his relationships with girls and the feelings he had in nature. He graduated from Manhattan based Baruch College and moved to Los Angeles the day after his college graduation because of a girl.
Rob has won poetry contests and been published over the years and after writing hundreds of poems, Rob started writing children’s stories in rhyme, because it was more of a challenge. Rob’s favorite author was Dr. Seuss and to this day, Rob feels there’s a little Dr. Seuss in everything he writes.
And Rob will continue writing poetry and children’s stories because he feels…it is his passion.
