The soles of Nhi Aronheim’s feet still bear the scars of her escape from Vietnam—trudging through the jungles of Cambodia as a child with a group of strangers seeking the land of opportunity: America. Her quest for survival through the jungle eventually led her to a boat that took her to Thailand and an orphanage, where Nhi lived for two years until she qualified for refugee status in the U.S.

Soles of a Survivor” is more than just an inspirational survival story, it’s about the lessons Nhi learned about humanity, diversity and unconditional love since arriving in the United States. After she married a Jewish man, she eventually converted to Judaism, though the process was challenging for an Asian woman adopted into a Christian household. Now she relishes being a Vietnamese Jew and has a deeper appreciation for the parallels between the Jewish and Vietnamese cultures, and others.

In conversation with Ina Resnikoff, attorney, writer, educator and activist.
