Invisible Walls (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


One of the trailblazers of the modern female Foreign Correspondent, former Guardian reporter Hella Pick fled her native Austria as a Jewish child refugee in 1939. Over three decades she covered the volatile global scene, first in Africa, then in America and eastern Europe. During 35 years with the Guardian, she reported on the Watergate Scandal in Washington, on Martin Luther King's march from Selma to Montgomery, and on the Gdansk shipyard uprising in Poland. A scoop interview with Poland's beleaguered leader, General Jaruzelski (who gave her a large bunch of red roses) took precedence over the death of Soviet president Brezhnev the same day.

But her book is also a clarion call for preserving professionalism in journalism at a time when social media allows anyone to become citizen journalists. To distinguish truth from fiction, and to differentiate reporting and facts from comment, is the hallmark of Invisible Walls - the dramatic story of how a Kindertransport survivor came to converse with and sometimes befriend world leaders.
