THROUGH eyes still teared from weeks at sea
This trembling babe...this Jewish child -
Too young to know 'twas Liberty -
Saw the Lady's lamp...and smiled.

THUS began Frieda Stollman's new life in America. As she grew up she learned the meaning of Liberty and
thrilled. to the words on the Lady's pedestal - lines by Emma Lazarus, Jewish poet and Zionist:

"GIVE me your tired, your poor
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free
...I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

IN gratitude for America's blessings, Frieda's life has been devoted to the attainment of freedom for all her
people. With the rebirth of the State of Israel, her spirit joyfully expanded in support of its new citizens
"...huddled masses yearning to breathe free."

DURING this Centennial Year of the Lady, our Detroit Jewish community honors its Lady of the Year, Frieda
Stollman: immigrant...valued citizen...humanitarian...Zionist...Woman of Valor.
