Miriam Moskowitz has long been known in her New Jersey community as a dedicated schoolteacher and a woman of uncommon intelligence. But it wasn't until recent publication of her memoir that neighbors have discovered Miriam's incredible past as a survivor of one of the most infamous periods of United State's history. Caught up in Joseph McCarthy's communist witch hunt, she served two years in federal prison for Conspiracy to Obstruct Justice in collaboration with Harry Gold, whose testimony was later used to convict Ethel and Julius Rosenberg.
