A native of Vienna, Austria, Kluger was sent to a concentration camp in 1942 and transferred to Auschwitz a year later. She survived the war and immigrated to the United States in 1947. She joined the faculty at the University of California, Irvine in 1976, taught at Princeton from 1980 to 1986, and then returned to Irvine, where she taught until her retirement in 1994.
