On Today’s Leonard Lopate at Large, Former U.S. Ambassador to Romania Alfred H. Moses, who has had a distinguished career in public service spanning more than three decades.
After serving as Special Advisor and Special Counsel to President Jimmy Carter, President Clinton appointed Moses to be the American ambassador to Romania in 1994, where he served for three years. This followed his 20-year effort to free Jews and others in Communist Romania.
Ambassador Moses’s book “Bucharest Diary: Romania’s Journey from Darkness to Light” details the fall of the Communist dictatorship in 1989 and the Western diplomatic efforts he was involved in to help transform Romania into a free, democratic society in the 1990s.
