Project Description

Mary Pacifico Curtis on Gitta Ryle

Mary Pacifico Curtis tells us the story of Gitta Ryle a child survivor of the Holocaust who found her purpose after a long life of struggle and anxiety. Gitta visits dozens of schools each year telling the story of the Holocaust and encouraging children toward peace and making the world a better place. Personally, Mary benefited from Gitta’s wisdom and friendship to understand there can be life after profound loss. Gitta’s hard-earned message: we must keep rising to meet the new day.
