TELL ME A STORY - ORAL AND WRITTEN HISTORIES



    

 


Sally's Story

I grew up on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the traditional melting pot for immigrants in New York City.  My background is rich in the diversity of a multi-ethnic, multi-racial neighborhood.My parents were organizers and visionaries for a better world.

What a rich legacy has been passed down to me!


My father told me stories about living in a Jewish shtetl in Russia, coming to the U.S. at the age of six, one of eleven children.

My maternal grandfather, a self-educated immigrant from Russia, told me stories of working as a mechanic for the New York subway system.

In June of 2004 I had the privilege of publishing a tribute to my mother who was 80 years old.    It was a very special birthday present, and I am so glad I was able to do it while she is still here to appreciate it.


As a mom, I am particularly aware of the importance of passing down our life experiences for future generations.
