Nothing Could Stop Her
The Courageous Life of Ruth Gruber
Ruth Gruber didn’t want to live an ordinary life, and she wouldn’t take “no” for an answer. Born to a Jewish American family in 1911, she grew up to become a renowned journalist and activist. Her career spanned seven decades and led her to places that other reporters wouldn’t or couldn’t go, from Nazi Germany to the remote Arctic regions of the Soviet Union. At a time when women were expected to stay at home and raise families, Ruth told the stories of people in need and fought for their rights to live in safety and freedom.
