Rock and Roll Refugee details the astounding true events of a rock and roll pioneer, whose early childhood encompasses being a Holocaust survivor, an immigrant in an unsettling world and the wild ride that shapes her career-as well an impromptu performance that changes her life forever.

Before Goldie and The Gingerbreads, the first successful all-female rock band in 1962, Genya Ravan was Genyusha Zelkovicz, a young girl fleeing Nazi-occupied Poland with her family in search of a hopeful start in America. After passing through Ellis Island and moving to the Lower East Side of New York City, Genyusha, now "Goldie," faced grief, poverty, abuse and loss of identity. With no one to turn to, she forged her own path, and changed history.
