As Mrs. Jackson states in her book, we want a world free of hatred. We need to be tolerant and accepting of one another. If these stories are not told or taught, this hope will never happen. Keep reading! There are numerous excellent books on the Holocaust. Four Perfect Pebbles by Marion Blumenthal Lazan is one that I would recommend. Mrs. Lazan does have a website, and she does respond to those who write. Cathie

It is emotional but true.. and real. Another person who wrote about her holocaust past is The cage. By ruth minsky sender. Bye for now.

Cathie posts a bold assertion on 4/12/2005 1:58:40 PM Brooke, Have you received any information from Mrs. Jackson. I teach this book to my seventh graders and would like to have them write to her. I have asked for her address before and have not received anything. Please let me know if you know how she can be contacted. Thanks Cathie
Mary Benner posts a message on 4/10/2005 9:35:28 PM Brooke, I have given Livia the address to this site. I don't know if she has looked at it yet. The next time I talk to her I will again direct her to the site, and if she wants to she will contact you. Mary Benner
carol posts on 4/7/2005 10:56:04 PM I just finished Hello, America and have more questions...what happened to her mother, brother, when did she marry, when did she go to Israel? Will she be publishing another book to continue the story? Does she have an autobiography of her family and life, outside of the books already written? The book I Have Lived a Thousand Years had a profound affect on me.
Brooke posts on 4/7/2005 8:26:46 PM I am planning on reading that book after I finish Romeo and Juliet (for school) and after I finish The five people you meet in heave (for my book group). I am actually telling them I think we should read some of Livia's Books, hopefully they check it out. I also would like to know If Livia is available to be sent email, mail, or be met. If yes I'd love to know how.
