Growing up as a Jewish boy in Flatbush in the 1950s and ’60s was a tumultuous time shaped by the aftermath of WWII, the JFK assassination and then commonly-accepted bigotry, as author Robert Rosen shares in his new book, “Bobby in Naziland: A Tale of Flatbush”. The coming-of-age memoir tells the story of Rosen and his family set in working-class Flatbush, then a neighborhood largely populated by Holocaust survivors and World War II veterans.

Robert Rosen, born in Brooklyn, attended Erasmus Hall High School and the City College of New York, where he studied writing with Joseph Heller and Francine du Plessix Gray.
