About the Book

MIRIAM'S DIARY tells the story of a Jewish girl who came to the United States from Palestine in 1947, before the establishment of the State of Israel, to study at a university. The goal of her studies was to enable her to eventually return to her homeland equipped with the knowledge and perspective required for her to be of service to her country. From her diary, we learn about her feelings of alienation while attending college in America and about her concern for her loved ones back home. By tracking the events happening in her homeland before, during, and after the establishment of the State of Israel, her diary allows us to see the birth of Israel from the point of view of someone who went through it while living thousands of miles away. The book leads us through Miriam's emotional turmoil and to her decision to return prematurely to her country. MIRIAM'S DIARY is a must-read for anyone interested in an intimate view of the struggle for the establishment of the State of Israel.

Born in Israel (then called Palestine), Judith Weinshall Liberman came to the United States in 1947 to pursue higher education.
