Ann Redmon was the daughter of Protestant farmers from Columbus, Indiana. Freddy Diamant was the son of an Austrian Jewish merchant family. They came from vastly different worlds. Yet, when they met during WWII, something ignited between them, something so profound that it overcame those differences. Worlds Apart, Worlds United: A European-American Story, The Memoirs of Ann & Alfred Diamant is a love story. It is the story of two remarkable people whose lives touched countless others in memorable ways. However, their story is also an eyewitness account of other times and other places. It is a glimpse into a window that is now closed or at least darkened for most of today's generations. It is insightful, thought-provoking, and inspiring. Reviews What comes through this book are Freddy's deep commitments to his wife, to his children, to his students, to his colleagues. These commitments to people are combined with a belief that our country and our world can be more just and more decent. He gives us a profound and inspiring vision. ~Norm Furniss, PhD, Professor of Political Science (retired), Indiana University Ann had a strong belief in social justice. She did not tolerate discrimination or intolerance. Early in her life, she realized the importance of education for all, especially women. Ann learned early that men had all the advantages-wages, promotions, household assistance. She became a lifelong feminist, a strong supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and a lifetime member of the League of Women Voters (LWV). ~Iris Kiesling, Commissioner, Monroe County, Bloomington, Indiana
