This luminous biography of Eli Zborowski is a tribute to an outstanding Jewish leader who single-handedly founded the American Society for Yad Vashem, which, under his stewardship, has raised over $100 million for that preeminent Holocaust memorial. It is also an exploration of the influences that guided him from a DP camp to the presidency of Sheaffer Latin America, and enabled him to make a credible bid for the entire Sheaffer Pen Company.The authors succeed in not only documenting the bright points of light along the arc of Zborowski s career, but in connecting these points into a clear pattern of character development and isolating the events and people that influenced him. The book relates his teenage service as a courier for the Jewish underground, his rescue of more than 100 postwar orphans, his development of a model Youth Home in the Feldafing DP camp, and his subsequent devotion to Holocaust education. It traces the impact of his father s principles, in business relations and in life, to Zborowski s humane treatment of employees, his total honesty in business, his dedication to communal service, and to sharing his time and his wisdom with his children.The authors compelling synthesis of their subject s complex life almost reads like a novel. In his foreword, Sir Martin Gilbert says of A Life of Leadership, In this book there is not a single dull page, not a single story that does not resonate today with the capacity to inspire new generations.
