Bea Friedman Silverberg, 98, has worked with the U.N. Relief and Rehabilitation Administration in Yugoslavia after World War II, campaigned for Henry A. Wallace for president in West Virginia's mine country, co-founded a shelter for survivors of domestic violence but wanted to do one more thing before she dies – publish a book.
After 25 years of writing essays about her experience and six months of putting together the pieces, her dream was accomplished May 1 at Menorah Park in Beachwood, where she resides. With the help of the center's D.R.E.A.M Team and her family, she held a signing for her book, "Mosaic and Memory: My Life Then & Now," the same day where more than 75 friends, family members and residents heard an excerpt from it read by her daughters. The D.R.E.A.M. is an acronym for dare to reach for every amazing moment.
