Undeterred is the story of how Luck, Love, and Learning helped a young girl from an upper-middle class European family surmount discrimination, horror, and fear engendered by the Nazis in the 1930s. Several rescuers enabled her to escape from Germany to other countries. Landing in the United States at age twelve, she soon found herself to be a little girl among sophisticated teenagers.

As she matured, she traversed the European-American culture gaps, but not without strife. As is so often the case during adolescence, she had tumultuous struggles with her parents. Ultimately she herself became a mother of four. She also earned a doctorate from a prestigious university and succeeded as a respected professional. Charlotte Kahn speaks of finding her way and how she Made It In America.
