From Gabe Frankel ’15 comes the news of a literary journey:

Julia’s Star, written by Johanna Justin-Jinich ’10, tells a story about the injurious effects of intolerance, and how curiosity, friendship, knowledge and trust can overcome prejudice. Every spring, several Wesleyan students read the story and facilitate a discussion about difference and how to understand/appreciate diversity of others in elementary schools around Middletown.

Dates and Times: Tuesday, March 5 at 12 pm or Wednesday, March 6 at 11:15 am

    this is a web site that Johanna’s grandmother supports. The Grandmother Renata Justing had the book Julia’s Star published in memory of her granddaughter. Renata wrote a book about her escape and experiences as a Jew in Nazi Germany. She discusses Johanna in the book and her murder. It is also about diversity and acceptance of differences. Her book is wonderful. Check it out.
