It's been a year this month since my mentor, Ida Kramer passed away. Ida inspired me and countless others with her tireless passion of teaching the Holocaust. What a special joy it was for me to watch News 6 last week and see Fran Riley's interview with the author of the children's book about Ida.
It was very special to see Rachael reading it to the children at Jane Adams Elementary School. I loved seeing how intently they were listening to the visiting author. Thank you Rachael Cupp and Jasmine Mendez for documenting this important story. Now thousands of students will know Ida's story and how special she was to Holocaust education in this region.
