Jewish Heroes and Heroines of America documents, with 150 action stories and illustrations, how Jews have made heroic contributions in every facet of American industry and culture. Featured heroes and heroines include: Albert Einstein, Irving Berlin, Barbara Streisand, Henry Kissinger, Benny Goodman, Sandy Koufax and Levi Strauss. Many of those featured are not household names, but their great feats are well known: Dr. Judith Reznick, space shuttle Challenger astronaut; Dr. Gerty Radnitz Cori, first American woman to receive the Nobel prize for medicine; Emma Lazarus, who wrote the poem displayed at the base of the Statue of Liberty. The stories are told accessibly, but meaningfully, about how the Jewish contribution is, in fact, an American contribution. Each of the stories is a great appetiser for the life story of the person or event.
