Strong women who stand up for justice in the face of deadly opposition have been featured recently in the international media–from the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner boldly standing up for the educational rights of Pakistani girls, to an Iranian professor whose secret book club defied the oppression of a brutal regime.
Virginia Prodan is to be counted among these women. Denouncing one of the most powerful and brutal communist dictators of the time, Virginia dared to defend Christians in communist Romania while fearlessly declaring Christ–even to the assassin who was ordered to kill her.
Virginia’s true story of faith, obedience, and courage can still be witnessed today as she continues to defend, in court, those who have been discriminated against for their Christian faith–only now in her adopted country of the United States!
Saving My Assassin: One Woman’s Stand against an Evil Empire is the unbelievable, true story of a living heroine of the faith.
Virginia Prodan’s compelling story of courage in the face of intimidation and even death on behalf of others is a testament to her unwavering faith in a God who delivers. Exiled from Romania since 1988, Virginia frequently shares her story as a keynote speaker in large public forums–including public and private schools and universities–and has been featured prominently in media reports. She was the focus of a full-length documentary and has been interviewed by Fox News, Heritage Foundation, The Daily Signal, WFAA-TV Channel 8, Dallas Morning News, Fox-TV 4, BBC Radio, The Daily Signal, Heritage Action for America, Glenn Beck, KCBI-Dallas 90.9, and the Christian Science Monitor.
Virginia is a naturalized American citizen and a single mother of two daughters and a son. Her first daughter is a graduate of SMU and is a professional counselor; her second daughter is a graduate of Harvard Law School and is a practicing attorney; and her son is a graduate of the US Air Force Academy, currently serving as a U.S.Airforce – Captain – helicopter rescue pilot.
Today, Virginia Prodan resides in Dallas, Texas, where she enjoys practicing law, writing, opera, swimming, the symphony, and traveling for pleasure. She also enjoys her numerous speaking engagements, where she continues to inspire and impact lives with her incredible true-life story.
