The Nation

February 13, 1986

Marilyn Klinghoffer was eulogized as a heroine who, despite terminal cancer, spat in the face of her crippled husband's murderers aboard the cruise ship Achille Lauro and went on to campaign against international terrorism in his memory. Klinghoffer, who died Sunday at 59, "was unwittingly thrust into world celebrity" when her husband, Leon, was killed by Palestinian nationalists aboard the cruise ship in the Mediterranean Sea last October.
