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.

Nothing Could Stop Her by Rona Arato
Read On: 1/2/2023
As someone who loves reading books about historical figures and events, this book jumped out at me. Ruth Gruber was and will always be a true inspiration for anyone with a dream, but especially for young women and girls. Ruth had a dream of being a writer and she followed through with it well into her 90s. During her career, she ended up telling the stories of people from some of the most dangerous places around the world. The book was well written and really helped capture the events Ruth went through to become a great journalist and humanitarian. The story in this book ends with Ruth and the refugees she helped bring to America from Europe during WWII, but she covered so many more stories about Jewish people and refugees from other parts of the world. I will definitely be reading some of Ruth's books after reading this book. I would also like to mention that the illustrations in this book were pleasant and well done. Thank you NetGalley, Rona Arato, and Kar-Ben Publishing for allowing me to read this advanced copy of Nothing Could Stop Her. Overall, it was a great book about an amazing woman who worked hard to tell the stories of others and make sure their voices were heard.
This book is fantastic!! It's a great biography about a woman who paved the way for many beyond her. It gives you a glimpse into what women had to do to be taken seriously and her role in the transport of the first group of refugees during WWII. Ruth Gruber is not mentioned in many readings but her work is immensely important and I can't recommend this book enough! It will definitely make its way to my classroom library!
