On March 23, 2023, Dana and Yvona talked to the 8th grade social studies classes at Petrova School in Saranac Lake, NY.
Yvona read a poem about the destruction of Warsaw from Good in the Midst of Evil and introduced her mother.
Dana Fast spoke about her life in the Warsaw Ghetto (fall 1940 - summer 1942) and then her experiences masquerading as a Catholic girl in the Polish country village of Dabrowa, then in an orphanage run by the Sisters of Charity, and finally living with a distant relative who had Volksdeutch status.
Thanks to Hannah Carroll for the pictures.
