Ahead Of Time: The Extraordinary Journey of Ruth Gruber (#103H) Duration: 1:29:39 STEREO TVPG

For seven decades foreign correspondent and photojournalist Ruth Gruber didn't just report the news, she made it. Born in 1911 to Russian Jewish immigrants, Ruth Gruber became the youngest Ph.D. in the world before becoming an international journalist at age 24. A fearless trailblazer who defied tradition to become the eyes and conscience of the world, she was the first journalist to enter the Soviet Arctic in 1935, traveled to Alaska as a member of the Roosevelt administration in 1942, escorted Holocaust refugees to America in 1944, covered the Nuremberg trials in 1946, and documented the Palestine-bound Haganah ship Exodus in 1947. Her relationships with world leaders, including Eleanor Roosevelt, President Harry Truman, and Israel's Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, gave her unique access and insight into modern history.



An utterly Fascinating nonagenarian with the mannerisms of virtually every decade leading up to that. Her recountings are concise, variously humorous and always eloquent. Check it out if authentic History via such a Source appeals.. (and if that doesn't? well then Bunkie, ... ... )

Here's where you don't need to go to get a DVD or something, (if your local PBS is out-of-sync with mine.)




Carrion;
She saw that LIVE, with seats near Hitler at one of his more vicious rants [KIll the Jews; KIll America..] and like that) and she also sat in on the Trials at N├╝rnberg == as in a cha. cha. cha. of her own private kind (?)
See her encounter with the Hanging Judge re her Visa [A woman in Saudi Arabia!] to Saudi Arabia ... see How she made the sucker Eat Crow (when he tried to bar her from the flight..) The Lady has been Stellar all her life.

(She died in 2016 at 105, after 200 years of living.)

And the fucking Orange-boy wants to Kill a planet which also contained Her and ... and ... moi, too.
