Identical Strangers

Paula Bernstein and Elyse Schein were both born in New York City. Both girls were adopted as infants and raised by loving families. When they were 35-years-old they met for the first time and found they were “identical strangers.” Paula and Elyse discovered that they had been separated as infants and were part a research study of identical twins designed to examine the question of nature versus nurture. This documentary includes the first tape ever broadcast of Dr. Peter Neubauer describing his secret experiment.
