Bowman Brothers tell story of Art Hilmo

February 20, 2012

 

It was a year ago (February 2011) when I learned about the story of a Righteous man named Art Hilmo.  The Jewish Federation called me asking if I would visit Art and hear his story to see if it would be a good fit for A BOOK by ME.  When I went to his small apartment, I knew right away this story needed to be told for the next generation. Art is such a humble man and according to him "I just did what anyone would do". Not true!  He risked his life to save others -including many Jewish families -- taking them from Nazi occupied Norway to safety in Sweden in the dark of night on skis of all things!  I introduced the story to a home school mom and asked her if her two boys (one would write and the other illustrate) could do the project right away.  The reason being, I wanted to present Art with a proof copy at the Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance) in April.  Well, the boys did a great job and Art was able to proofread the book and make minor changes before the book went to print. This story is the inspiration behind A BOOK by ME's Operation Write Now.  We must enlist young people to tell these important stories right now!
