IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: MARIANE PEARL - JOURNALIST

Rate this Entry

The story of Mariane Pearl is well-known. She is the widow of Wall Street Journalist reporter Daniel Pearl who was kidnapped and tortured by al Qaeda operatives in Pakistan. Mariane Pearl's heroic story is documented in her book "A Mighty Heart" and the movie of the same title. Newsweek described the story:

"A Mighty Heart," starring Angelina Jolie, is based on the best-selling
book by Mariane Pearl about the murder of her husband, Wall Street
Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, by Al Qaeda members in Karachi,
Pakistan, in early 2002. The movie details Mariane's struggle--with the
help of Journal editors, Pakistan counterterrorism experts, FBI agents
and others--to unravel the terrorist network and find Danny.

Ms. Pearl now resides in New York raising the young child of Daniel's who was born after his father was murdered. Interestingly, Ms. Pearl's nationality is French, by the way, but she is of Dutch-Jewish, Afro-Latino-Cuban and Chinese-Cuban ancestry. That kind of mix should give you a unique perspective on the world.
