Gutmann said she was grateful for the opportunity, considering she was the daughter of a Holocaust survivor. “As the daughter of a refugee, first generation of graduates and as an academic leader devoted to promoting constitutional democracy, I have no words to thank President Biden for the trust placed in me,” the ambassador said in a statement.

His father fled Germany to India in 1934, along with his parents and brothers, when the Nazi persecution of Jews was already underway. Ten years later, he settled in New York.
