The Confidante: The Untold Story of the Woman Who Helped Win WWII and Shape Modern America
Hosted By: The Center for Jewish History
A Hungarian Jewish immigrant with only a high school education, Anna Marie Rosenberg was FDR’s special envoy to Europe in World War II, was among the first Allied women to enter a liberated concentration camp, and stood in the Eagle’s Nest, Hitler’s mountain retreat, days after its capture. She was a key figure behind national policies critical to America winning the war and prospering afterwards, guiding the direction of the Manhattan Project and the G.I. Bill of Rights. In this first-ever biography of Rosenberg, who was dubbed by Life Magazine “the most important woman in the American government,” Christopher C. Gorham affords her the recognition she so richly deserves.
The author will be in conversation with Lauren Gilbert, Senior Manager for Public Services at the Center for Jewish History.
