Colorado Women: Golda Meir, Choices & Chances

Golda Meir, Israel’s fourth prime minister, was born in Kiev, Russia, and migrated to America when she was just nine. Determined to get an education, Meir ran away from her parents’ home in Milwaukee to live with her sister in a Jewish neighborhood in Denver. In this performance by Helen M. Trencher, you'll have a rare opportunity to "meet" the soon-to-be former Prime Minister of the State of Israel, Golda Meir, as she reflects on the early years of her storied career, 1914 to 1948. It was a time that covered her life in Denver and its influence on her choices and the direction the rest of her life would take.
