Description

Edith Flagg is truly an inspiration to all. A Simple Girl tells the life story of a woman who survived the unimaginable and fulfilled the American Dream. Flagg was born in a small town in Romania in 1919. Having traveled to Vienna to go to fashion school at the young age of 15, she watched Hitler march into Austria and decided at that moment she would not let him decide her fate. Flagg fled Austria to Holland, where she became an active member of the Dutch Underground, an organization that fought Hitler and the Nazi regime. A simple Girl describes all that Flagg ( a single mother) endured. After immigrating to Palestine at the end of the war, Flagg moved to America, where her incredible story becomes that much more amazing. With $5 in her pocket, Flagg managed to become one of the leading fashion designers of her day, and a pillar in the California apparel industry. From a mere $2000, she built a multi-million dollar clothing company and has over the years given vast sums of her wealth to charity. She is an inspiration to everyone.
