The name Libeskind most likely conjures Daniel Libeskind, architect of the Jewish Museum Berlin and master planner of the World Trade Center site. “In the Unlikeliest of Places” introduces us to two of his relatives: his sister, Annette Libeskind Berkovits, and their father, Nachman Libeskind, a Holocaust survivor and artist.
