In conversation with Sylvie Heyman, author of ‘Beyond the Holocaust – an immigrant’s search for identity’
Beyond the Holocaust: An Immigrant’s Search for Identity is Sylvie Heyman’s personal narrative as a refugee, with her family, from Europe during World War II. It chronicles their journey to Brazil, the harrowing experiences as they were smuggled to Argentina, the challenges faced in those dictatorship countries and the final immigration to the United States of America when Sylvie was a teenager.
In the second part of the book, Sylvie blends her personal experiences with scholarly theories about language, nationality, and identity to better understand the long-term struggles and challenges that immigrants face.

Let Anthony Pepe take the stress out of managing your property. As rents rise in London so do tenants’ expectations and as such both private and corporate tenants are demanding professionally managed lets.
Sylvie Heyman published her first book: Make it a HABIT! Creating Health and Happiness for your body, Mind, and Spirit at the age of 79 in March 2017. The book was an extension of the author’s experiences in the healthcare field, and covers a span of 50 years as a Registered Nurse, Chiropractor, Acupuncturist, and Health Coach. At the beginning of the “habit” book, the author describes her origins and her reasons for pursuing careers in the healing arts. This led to writing her memoirs about her family’s escape during World War II and how her past moulded her life.
