In the Warsaw Ghetto of Nazi-occupied Poland, 21-year-old Helen Fagin defied the fascist regime by secretly teaching Jewish children mathematics, Latin, and the transportive wonders of literature. After smuggling in a copy of “Gone With the Wind,” Fagin recounted the story of Scarlett O’Hara to her enraptured class. In a letter penned more than 75 years later, Fagin reflected on the power of hope and dreams, recalling how she was forever touched by the way the gripping tale was able to free her young students from the horrors of their reality.
