HIGHLIGHTS

Selected quotation

"However he feels about his Jewish DNA, Holbrooke is held up as a compassionate Jew by countless Jewish organizations that have hailed his peace efforts. He has received prizes from the World Jewish Congress, the Anti-Defamation League, Jerusalem's Hebrew University, and Yeshiva University. "Les Gelb has this great joke that they're inventing Jewish organizations to give me awards," he says with a laugh. "Don't ask me. They invite me; I'm very proud to do it." "
