About the Author

Miriam Moskowitz was born the first of four children in Bayonne, N.J., on June 10, 1916. She attended local schools, and worked for federal government agencies while obtaining a bachelor's degree from City College of New York (1942). In 1944 she became a secretary for A. Brothman and Associates, which led to her entanglement in the the kind of mythical conspiracy common in the McCarthy era. After her release from prison, she found employment in the private sector until 1970, when she began teaching, retiring in 1984. She is an accomplished violist, volunteers at a local hospital, and enjoys her devoted nieces and nephews, three of whom are active musicians.

Format: Paperback
I saw this book years ago when it was in manuscript form and was blown away by it. The first chapters read like a John le Carre novel. I was curious to find out what else Miriam had written and couldn't believe that this was the first book she had attempted. I had been writing about another McCarthy era case for years (Alger Hiss), so I was familiar with the outlines of Miriam's story. Her book, however, caught me completely by surprise -- it was that good. And to have written it when she was around 90 (now 94)! Anyway, I'm proud to say I helped Miriam find a publisher. The book is as good as advertised. It's a great lesson what can happen when fanatics and demagogues conspire to prey on the innocent for their own purposes. Miriam may have lost her case, but she emerged an unbroken spirit, and now she gets the last word. Good for her.

Ms. Moskowitz was my math teacher in Hackensack, N.J. Of course, as a carefree child I certainly had no idea of her past experiences as a young woman with horror of McCarthyism. When I came across her book, and then interviews on Youtube, etc., I could hardly believe it was my tough math teacher from years & years ago! How strange life can be... In any event, I recommend reading the book- she has written a fascinating account of her life with razor sharp insight into this segment of American history.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An important book written in a compassionate and sensible style -- a difficult accomplishment even decades after the events for a victim of lies, injustice and imprisonment. By their own sworn testimony we see that Elizabeth Bentley and Harry Gold were incapable of telling the truth and were malleable pawns in the hands of opportunistic (to say the least) prosecutors, judges, and bureaucrats. It's a reward that Ms. Moskowitz survived her torments and wrote this book.

This is probably one of the most interesting books I have ever read. Miriam went through so much and it was a pleasure reading about her life. I can't imagine spending time in jail for a crime I didn't commit but this book is proof that it does happen. I would highly recommend this book to any reader.

This book is just another attempt by someone who actively worked against the US for the Soviet Union to rewrite history. No, you weren't convicted solely on what Harry Gold said, you were convicted on what Elizabeth Bentley said, and her history as a Soviet spy is unchallenged. You don't get a do over, you get what you got, a life you have to live because of the choices you made in it.

Deal with it, you made the choices, now have some responsiblity for them.
