Hadassah Lieberman’s new memoir is a candid, thoughtful and moving account of her journey from war-shattered Czechoslovakia to the heights of U.S politics. Its pages capture Hadassah’s love of family, respect for tradition, and deep devotion to her adopted country. As a fellow immigrant, I am glad she is sharing her story of pursuing, and achieving, the American dream.
--Madeleine K. Albright, Former Secretary of State
Hadassah’s story resonates with all immigrants regardless of where they came from or when. Her beautifully written memoir is moving and inspirational. It will make you cry; it will make you laugh. It is a uniquely American story and her journey is now a part of our history.
--The Honorable Elaine L. Chao, former U.S. Secretary of Labor
Drawing on both her personal and familial experiences, Hadassah Lieberman has written a moving and insightful memoir that speaks on the nature of faith, the importance of personal history, and the individual commitment that democracy requires.
--Henry A. Kissinger
Hadassah Lieberman’s story is an American dream. A child of Holocaust survivors and a committed Jew, she became a witness to the topmost reaches of American political life, almost becoming the 'Second Lady' of the United States. It was an unbelievable saga and she takes the reader along with her as she looks back on that journey.
--Deborah Lipstadt, Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish and Holocaust Studies, Emory University
My work in search of the tragic fate of Ukrainian Jews, as well as other victims of the Nazi war machine, has been sobering. Nonetheless, it is important to continue with this effort, to learn what we can, to listen to survivor testimony and to bear witness. This is exactly what Hadassah Lieberman has marvelously done in her amazing and moving book recounting her family’s experiences during the Second World War. A book for young generations to read, to stay awake and to stay strong!
--Father Patrick Desbois, Founder and President of Yahad-In Unum and author of The Holocaust by Bullets
Hadassah Lieberman has had a rewarding career dedicated to health care issues, assisting nonprofit organizations, improving educational standards, and promoting international understanding, with a particular focus on global women's health.
