La Lettre de la Photographie / Photo Image Inguilere

My tools were words and images and I could use those tools to show injustice –Ruth Gruber, recipient of the Cornell Capa Award

Ruth Gruber photographed as a foreign correspondent for the New York Herald Tribune. In 1944, while the war and holocaust raged, Gruber was sent on a covert mission by President Roosevelt to escort 1,000 refugee’s across the Atlantic to the U.S. When she took the stage to receive her award, now 100 years old, she also took everyone’s heart."
