Born in Brooklyn in 1948, Susan Berman is the daughter of German Holocaust survivors. Her mother Ruth took the Kindertransport to England in 1939, a few months before other members of her family boarded the ill-fated ship, the St. Louis. Berman's father Manfred was arrested on Kristallnacht, but after his release he fled Germany and immigrated to the United States, where he served in the U.S. Army.
