Survivor Stories Club
recipients: Shannon Galloway, Elston Middle School, Northwest Indiana WP, IN
date: Fall 2011 and ongoing
Shannon Galloway’s students read Holocaust survivor Bronia Brandman’s The Girl Who Survived as well as other memoirs and books about the Holocaust as part of a larger project focusing on stories of survival. As part of their work, they had email correspondence with Ms. Brandman and participated in several cultural activities with the help of a Jewish teacher in their school. A grant from the Memorial Library helped to establish a library of “mentor texts” at the school, as the beginning of a project that would ideally allow each year’s class to adopt a survivor and tell their story.
