Summary

A tribute to a generation of survivors, Mordecai Hacohen's powerful memoir recounts the little-known clandestine immigration of Jews from Nazi-controlled Europe to Israel, the foundation of the State of Israel, and the birth of the Israeli Foreign Service. Hacohen, who devoted his life to the creation and promotion of the state of Israel, relates the numerous efforts that brought him into contact with many of the brightest and most influential personalities of the twentieth century, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Albert Einstein, Isaac Stern, Golda Meir, and many others.
