Muriel's War: An American Heiress in the Nazi Resistance (Large Print) (Center Point Platinum Nonfiction)by Sheila Isenberg
Synopses & Reviews
Born into a family that valued riches above all, Muriel Gardiner rejected their value system. A child in a world where she only had to ring a bell to have her every need met, she embarked on a different path early in her life. An American heiress turned resistance hero, Muriel was an electrifying woman who impressed everyone she met with her beauty and intelligence. Her adventurous life led her from Chicago's high society to a Viennese medical school, and then to the Austrian underground.
Over the years, she saved countless Jews and anti-fascists, providing shelter and documents ensuring their escape. This remarkable woman's life as a legend of the Austrian Resistance was captured in the movie Julia with Vanessa Redgrave, and it remains an inspiration to all those who believe that one individual can change the world. Gardiner's astonishing story is told here for the first time in all its unanticipated twists and turns.
