Vilma Ginzberg's Biography

Member Info

Healdsburg, Cailfornia
I was married for a short time at the end of his life to a remarkable man, Raphael Ginzberg, M.D., who was a part of the history of medicine. My first "family stories" were written about him and my life with him, for our granddaughter, and has expanded to become two volumes of memoir.
