Looking Back

In the twilight of their lives our survivors spent a lot of time speaking to students and participating in our teacher education workshops. For many years they travelled with us to places in four states across the Deep South. It was important for them to talk about their experiences. It relieved them of the pressure that had been with them for so many years – the pressure not to remember. And they appreciated the interest and warmth of the students. Talking about the past proved a way of dealing with it.
