One of William Z. Spiegelman's three children, Judith M. Spiegelman was born and raised, and is still living in, New York City. Like her father, she is a writer. Among other works, she wrote a total of six books for UNICEF between 1969 and 1971. They focused on the lives of children in Turkey, Ceylon (now known as Sri Lanka), Thailand, Bali and Afghanistan.

This blog will serve as an appreciation of and archive for her UNICEF books. So far, two of them have been scanned and uploaded: Shaer of Afghanistan, and Dayapal of Ceylon. We are currently working on Ali of Turkey.

Judith M. Spiegelman

Ms. Spiegelman is also the author of We Are The Children: A celebration of UNICEF's first forty years (published in 1986 by Atlantic Monthly Press). The photo and text above were taken from the sleeve of this book. (Photo by Mitch Epstein.)
