About the Author

Marina Giurescu, MD was attending medical school in Bucharest, Romania when she defected to the United States in 1984. She re-did her medical education at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine 1988-1992, did her internship in pathology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, and her residency in radiology at the Yale-New Haven Hospital, followed by a one year fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York.
She has been working as a radiologist for the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ since 2000 and as an instructor in their College of Medicine. She has given many presentations at medical gatherings in Scottsdale and around the country, and has coauthored a half-dozen peer-reviewed articles for medical journals.
In regards to her authorship of A World Torn Asunder, she was born in the early 1960s and lived with her grandparents for the last fifteen years of her grandfather's life. Growing up as a child, she heard the inside and outside of all the family stories and had a particularly close relationship with her beloved grandfather, Constantin. While having a scientific bent and attracted early on to mathematics and the medical sciences, both her grandfather and her father, the historian Dinu Giurescu, were historical giants in their home country of Romania and the authors of countless books.

Fantastic tribute to a Grandfather and family by Dr. Giurescu about the life and indomitable spirit of one family during post WWI and WWII in Romania. Very interesting, well written and truly the amazing life of a highly esteemed historian, Dr. Giurescu's grandfather.
