Ambassador Alfred H. Moses, in conversation with Senator Joseph I. Lieberman
In the 1970s, American attorney Alfred H. Moses was approached on the streets of Bucharest by young Jews desperate to emigrate from Communist Romania to Israel. Helping them became his mission. In recognition of his work, Moses was appointed President Clinton’s first ambassador to Romania in 1994. In his compelling memoir, "Bucharest Diary: Romania’s Journey from Darkness to Light," Moses writes about his fascinating career and the previously untold story of the exodus of Jews from Communist Romania to Israel. Senator Joseph Lieberman joined Ambassador Moses on May 20, 2019 at the Center for Jewish History to discuss his historic work and key diplomatic role in Romania's transition from its Communist past to democracy - and from "darkness to light."
