The writer Harry Bernstein died on June 3 - he was 101 years old. He was first on The Story four years ago. Producer Cori Princell tells the story of what she and Harry talked about after the recorder was turned off.
Harry Bernstein was a child in England during World War I. He remembers when people living on his narrow street got word that their son or husband had died, they poured into the street to grieve and be consoled by their neighbors. It was one of the few times Harry can remember that the Jews and Christians on his street came together. The rest of the time, they lived in strict separation - the Jews on one side of the street, Christians on the other. Also on the show: another entry from Ahmed's Diary. And, a woman hears for the first time.
Thomas Buergenthal was a judge in the International Court, and when he was a young boy, he was a victim of Holocaust atrocities. Also in this episode, Harry Bernstein wrote his first memoir at age 97. He's now 100. Plus, Sue Perna.
