A discussion about Golda Meir. Includes commentary about some of the tactics used by Golda Meir to assert her influence upon followers.
Talk briefly about Golda Meir. Also comment on some of the tactics used by Golda Meir to assert her influence upon followers.
Golda Meir was born in 1898 in modern day Ukraine in the city of Kiev. Her father moved to the United States to find work and the family settled in Milwaukee. Golda attended school in Milwaukee when she was growing up. She moved out west to live with her married sister in her late teens because her mother wanted her to drop out of school and get married. At the age of 19 she married Morris Meyerson and in 1921 they moved to Palestine to join a kibbutz. Joining the kibbutz in Palestine had been her condition to the marriage in the first place.
The kibbutz recognized her strong leadership abilities and asked her to serve as their representative to the General Foundation of Labour. She and her husband settled in Jerusalem and had two children. In 1934 Golda became the head of the Political Department of the General Foundation of Labour. In 1938 she served as the Jewish observer at the Evian Conference called by US President Franklin Roosevelt to try to determine what to do with all of the Jewish refugees who were fleeing Germany and Nazi persecution. The only country that agreed to accept refugees was the Dominican Republican. All the European countries made excuses as to why they could not accept any Jewish refugees in their countries.
