It’s not every day that history walks into our lives. But on February 19th, this happened. Her name is Rose Sherman Williams, and she is a 92-year-old Holocaust survivor. That night, anybody and everybody interested in hearing her story filed into the PAC. All the seats were filled and there were still people standing and sitting on the ground.
Rose and two other guests shared with students, teachers, and parents about her experience, and the students wrote back.
Seventy-four years after she was liberated, Williams, Rebecca Hoag, and Robin Philbrick decided to take the student letters and put them into a book, along with her memoir. The book is called Letters to Rose, and it is a heart-wrenching story of survival, courage, and resilience.
