Unforgettable history lesson Holocaust survivor speaks to students, public at Plano Middle School By TONY SCOTT tscott@kendallcountynow.com Plano Middle School students recently received a history lesson they are likely never to forget. Marion Blumenthal Lazan, 82, a survivor of the notorious Nazi concentration camp BergenBelsen, spoke to students and community members on Wednesday, Feb. 8, about her experiences as a child living through the Holocaust, and provided a chilling reminder that it is up to us to never let it happen again. Lazan began speaking about the Holocaust in 1979 and has written a memoir of her experiences called “Four Perfect Pebbles.” She has also been the subject of a documentary, “Marion’s Triumph.” Lazan’s father, Walter, ran a shoe store in the small town of Bremen, Germany, and she lived with her brother, parents and grandparents above the store. In September 1935, Adolf Hitler introduced the Nuremberg Laws, when Lazan was younger than a year old. “Jews were not allowed into theaters, into parks, or into swimming pools,” Lazan said. “All public schools were closed to Jewish children. Then there was the evening curfew for the Jews. Jews were only allowed to shop during specific hours of the day, and nonJews were not allowed to shop in Jewish-owned stores. Non-Jews were just not allowed to associate with Jewish people.” Lazan said it was after the Nuremberg Laws were passed that her parents decided to leave the country. Her grandparents, however, did not see the need. “These restrictions went on and on, and it was then that my parents made arrangements to leave the country,” she said. “My grandparents, who were in their late 70s and ill, refused to leave their home. They could not un-

Lazan, a survivor of the Nazi concentration camp BergenBelsen, spoke to students and community members on Feb. 8 at Plano Middle School. derstand the urgency or the necessity of doing so. My grandparents passed away in 1938 within 11 days of each other, and soon thereafter, we received our necessary papers for our emigration to America.” In November 1938, Kristallnacht, known as the “Night of Broken Glass,” where Nazis and their sympathizers smashed the

windows of Jewish storefronts and caused other damage, set off an even more aggressive anti-Semitic campaign, she said. “This was the beginning of a massive pogrom against the Jews in Germany,” she said. “A massive verbal and physical assault against all German Jews. In reality, this was the beginning of the Holocaust.”

Lazan said the family was forced to sell their home and business for a fraction of their worth, and in January 1939, they left Germany for Holland to prepare for their move to the United States. They lived in Westerbork, a camp in Holland for Jewish refugees, to await their departure date. “In May of 1940, just one month before our planned depar-

ture date, the Germans invaded Holland and we were trapped,” she said. “All of our belongings, which were about to be loaded aboard ships, were burned and destroyed as the harbor of Rotterdam was bombed.” Lazan said that the conditions at the camp were fine at first,

Craft, vendor fair benefits first responders By STEVEN JACK news@kendallcountynow.com For Kami Terry, appreciation for first responders and the work they do every day is about more than just words, it’s about actually doing something. That’s why she founded Community Heroes Appreciation in April of 2016 – to take action. CHA is a local nonprofit organization that’s currently moving from town to town hosting craft and vendor fairs and using all the proceeds to purchase various items for police officers, firefighters, EMTs and department personnel.  The CHA Vendor and Craft Fair will hit Oswego from 1 to 4 p.m. Satur-

day, Feb. 18, at the YMCA, 160 E. Washington St. This will be Terry’s sixth event. “My dad is a retired [Montgomery] police officer and my brother is an officer, so this is something that means a lot to me,” Terry said. “I started this because I just felt like first responders weren’t getting enough appreciation, and it was time to do something about it.”  So far, Terry has raised about $6,000 in Sugar Grove, Montgomery, Plano, Sandwich and Yorkville. With that money, she’s been able to purchase meals, treats and personalized gifts for first responders, goodie bags for police officers to give to children, and care packages for officers to give to the

homeless. The work of organizing the events and delivering the items has become a full-time volunteer commitment for Terry, who could no longer work after having brain surgery last year. “Before I started this, I was always helping out the local departments in some way,” she said. “It’s kind of just blossomed from there. I can’t personally do more for them financially, so I thought I should probably get the community involved to make something happen.” She said the community reaction has been “amazing.” The reaction in Oswego, so far, has been great, too.  The upcoming fair is booked with 35 vendors and no room for more. Ven-

Alcoholism was a social scourge during the 19th century, and when politicians refused to do anything about it, citizens decided to take matters into their own hands. Learn the story of one of the most famous anti-drinking and anti-saloon activists in the nation’s history at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, March 4, when Ellie Carlson brings Carry A Nation to life. During “The Famous & Original Barroom Smasher: Carry A Nation,” Carlson will detail the life, motivations and actions of the United States’ first and arguably most enthusiastic – and during her lifetime, best known – anti-drug crusaders. From big cities to small towns, no place was immune to the problem. A note in the Jan. 6, 1870, Kendall County Record complained: “Yorkville is getting almost as bad as Oswego for drunkenness, fights, and saloons. Will [Kendall County] State’s Attorney Blanchard look after these things during Court week?” Born in Kentucky in 1846 as Carrie Amelia Moore, she married lawyer David Nation in 1877. Carrie Nation

became a fierce, dedicated temperance champion in 1890 after a U.S. Supreme Court decision weakened Kansas anti-saloon laws. Dressed in severe black, the imposing nearly 6-foot-tall crusader frequently invaded saloons with groups of hymn-singing women and used a hatchet to destroy the bars, bottles, and fixtures. To emphasize her goal of moving the entire country towards prohibition, she adopted the name “Carry A Nation.” Her activities were criticized as extreme by many but were credited with raising national awareness of the severe problems with alcohol and paving the way for Prohibition, which was finally enacted in 1919, eight years after her death. Admission is $5 for this entertaining presentation, which is aimed at visitors age 16 and older. Proceeds benefit the Little White School Museum, a joint project of the Oswegoland Heritage Association and the Oswegoland Park District. For more information, call the museum at 630-554-2999, send an email to info@littlewhiteschoolmuseum.org, or visit the museum’s website at littlewhiteschoolmuseum.org.

However, months later, the Nazis took over the camp. “We became acquainted with the ever-present, terrifying 12-foot-high barbed wire,” she said. The camp became overcrowded with Jews who were found by Nazis in hiding places, she said, and they had to share their living quarters with more people than before. “And then the dreadful transports to the concentration and extermination camps in Eastern Europe began,” she said. “This started in early 1942, and from then on, every Monday night, lists of those to be deported were posted, causing incredible anxiety, anguish and fear. And Tuesday morning, men, women and little ones were marched to a nearby railroad platform, from where they were transported. This area became known as ‘Boulevard des Misères.’ It was an area of complete misery. At 11 o’clock on Tuesday morning, the transports left for their destination, and of the total 120,000 men, women and children that departed Westerbork, 102,000 were doomed never to return.” Lazan said she and her family were shipped to a German concentration

Marion Blumenthal Lazan speaks to students and residents at Plano Middle School last Wednesday, Feb. 8, about her experience surviving a Nazi concentration camp. camp, the notorious Bergen-Belsen, in January of 1944, although she said as children they “welcomed the move” as a change of scenery and were “very naive.” The experience left her traumatized. “I remember that it was a bitter cold, pitch black, rainy night when we arrived at our destination: concentration camp Bergen-Belsen in Germany,” she said. “We were pulled and dragged out of the cattle cars, and greeted by the German guards, who were shouting at us and threatening us with their rifles, and with the most vicious attack dogs by their sides. I was a very frightened

9-year-old, and to this day, I still feel a certain sense of fear whenever I see a German Shepherd.” Lazan said 600 people were crammed into barracks built for a capacity of 100 at the camp, with two people per bed. “German winters were bitter cold and very long,” she said. “We were given one thin blanket per bunk, and a straw-filled mattress. Frostbite was common. We would treat our affected toes and fingers with the warmth of our own urine.” Lazan said the prisoners’ diet consisted of a slice of bread per day, a pat of butter, and some hot watery soup with

potato peels and gristle. She recalled being forced to strip and enter showers, where she and fellow detainees weren’t sure if deadly gas or water would be exiting the shower heads. “The Nazis did their utmost to break us physically, spiritually, emotionally,” she said. “Unfortunately, they did succeed with many of our people. It was not uncommon for people who were no longer responsible for their actions to attempt escape, even though they knew the chance to succeed was next to impossible. But they also felt that they had nothing more to lose. The failure of their attempts were obvious when we saw their bodies lying electrocuted against the barbed wire.” She and her family managed to survive their experience, leaving the camp following the liberation by the Allied forces. Her family arrived in the United States – specifically Hoboken, New Jersey – in April 1948, and a Jewish relief organization found a home for the family in Peoria, Illinois. As a 13-year-old, she was placed in fourth-grade classes due to her lack of English skills, she said. But by taking extra classes, she ended up graduating from Peoria Central High School in 1953, and ranked eighth in a class of 267 students. She got married to her husband, Nathaniel, after graduation, and the couple is

pass on to our students about respect, kindness and being understanding of everybody else, and I hope they really take that away from it.” Beyond telling students about her experience during the Holocaust, Lazan gave a lesson to students about tolerance and kindness. She said it’s up to us to not let such an atrocity happen again. “Each of us, each and every one of us, must do everything in our power to prevent such hatred, such destruction and such terror from reoccurring,” she said. “And we can begin by having love, respect and tolerance toward one another, regardless of religious belief, regardless of the color of our skin, regardless of the national origin. This respect towards one another must begin in our homes, around the kitchen table, the dining room table, wherever we gather as a family. We the adults must pass it on in our places of business, you the students in your classrooms, in the halls of the school, communities, towns, cities, and only if there’s tolerance and respect towards one another in the countries can we expect to have peace in the world.” Lazan also cautioned the students not to blindly follow a leader. “We must be true to ourselves and not blindly follow a leader without thinking ahead and searching our hearts and our minds as to what the consequences might be,” she said. “It is not cool to follow just anyone’s lead without checking to see what his or her true intentions are.” Lazan said the students and those in attendance must learn from “the dark period in our history.” “We must never generalize and judge an entire group by the actions of some within that group,” she said. “These are universal messages that each and every one of us is familiar with to varying degrees to be reminded of, over and over again. These messages are the lessons learned from the dark period of our history and certainly apply to today’s situation and definitely to our own individual lives. By listening I hope that you prevent our past from becoming your future.” For more information on Lazan or to purchase her book, visit fourperfectpebbles.com.

c­ elebrating their 64th wedding anniversary this year. Her father died of typhus, which was common in the concentration camps, six weeks after their liberation in the spring of 1945. However, her mother, Ruth, died in December 2012 at the age of 104. Lazan said she talks about the ordeal by psychologically separating herself from her experience. “When I talk about those years, it is as if I’m relating a nightmare, a very bad dream,” she said. “I separate myself from it ever having happened to me, and that is how I deal with it.” Lazan said she tells people her story so it will be passed down to future generations. She said children today will be the last generation to be able to hear the experiences first-hand. “Although I’ve spoken to upward of one million students and adults over the past 20-some years, it still has not become easy,” she told the students. “However, I do realize the importance of sharing that period of our history with you, simply because in a few short years, we will not be here any longer to give a first-hand account. Yours is the very last generation that will hear these stories first-hand. So I ask you to please share my story or any of the Holocaust stories that you read or learn about. Share them with your friends, share them with your relatives, and someday share them with your children and yes, even with your grandchildren. When we are not here any longer, it is you who will have to bear witness.” Plano Middle School Principal Mark Heller said Lazan’s speech helped bring history to life for the students. “I think to be able to read those things is one thing, but to be able to hear them from a person and connect that reality of someone who really went through the stories they’ve been reading and the connections that they’ve been making will hopefully really bring it to life,” he said. “Marion does an excellent job of not just her historical story but tying in that message that all of us as adults are trying to

Senior Services Associates will be hosting a Super Seniors Event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 13. This is a convenient and voluntary program for driver’s license renewal, which includes Rules of the Road classroom instruction, and a vision-screening exam. The Rules of the Road Review Course also includes a review of safe driving techniques and Illinois driving laws. A Secretary of State Mobile Driver Services Unit will be available for participants to renew their driver’s licenses. An identification card can be obtained for $20; however, if you are age 65 and older you may obtain a free, non-expiring state of Illinois photo ID card. Drivers age 75 and older are required to take a driving test to renew their driver’s licenses; therefore they must visit a Driver Service Facility. The Rules of the Road Review Course will take place from 10 to 11:30 a.m. This course is designed to give drivers – especially seniors and persons with disabilities – the knowledge and confidence needed to renew or obtain a driver’s license. The review course combines an explanation of the driving exam with a practice written exam.

Joe Duran won a spirited chili cook-off competition Jan. 29 at the Yorkville Congregational United Church of Christ and was presented with a trophy as the 2017 YCC Chili Champ. Other chili cooks who took part in the friendly competition were Karma Jessen, Ellie Gentile, Lee Kinkade, Joe Stablein and Brian Bazan. The winner was crowned during a dinner and family game night at the church, which is located at 409 Center Parkway, Yorkville.

Learn Something New Every Day “The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out.� —Proverbs 18:15 NIV

T

he advice to learn something new every day is akin to saving something for a rainy day, since skills and knowledge are powerful tools which we will someday need. We just don’t know when. You never know when those Spanish classes will pay off, but you can rest assured that you will eventually run into someone who speaks Spanish but doesn’t speak English. Learning also satisďŹ es what psychologists call “stimulus drives,â€? that is, drives such as curiosity and a desire for novelty which make us more open to the world around us and more competent in our interactions with the world. A former professor of mine used to say that knowledge was like the empty bags from the grocery store that we keep under the sink. We don’t know when, but we know we will eventually use them. So, besides the inherent joy and interest that comes from learning something new, it’s money in the bank that will pay healthy dividends. – Christopher Simon SM-CL0405336

What is a FOID card?

SPONSORED BY

By Diane Krieger Spivak If you live in Illinois and you’re looking to own a firearm, you’ll need to get a Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card. Introduced in 1968 by the FOID Act as a safety measure, a FOID card identifies people whom the state of Illinois determines are eligible to possess firearms and ammunition. You may apply for a FOID card on the Illinois State Police website at www.isp.state.il.us or by calling the ISP at 217-782-7980 to mail an application. The cards can be renewed the same way. A FOID application costs $10.00 plus a service fee and is valid for 10 years.

SM-CL0405322

You Pull

To be eligible for a FOID card, an applicant must be 21 or have a parent or guardian sponsor that is eligible for a FOID card. The FOID application includes some criminal history questions, and you must provide your full name, date of birth, street address of residence, driver’s license or identification card number, and a

recent color photograph. The ISP has 30 days to approve or deny the FOID application from the date of receipt. A FOID card is also required to possess and use a Taser or stun gun. Non-residents are not required to have a FOID card.

Some people are exempt from obtaining a FOID card, including certain law enforcement, military and veterans while engaging in official or ceremonial duties, nonresidents in specific instances, resident and nonresident hunters in specific instances, and specific competitive shooting athletes. More information is available on the ISP website. The ISP stresses that the FOID card is not the same as a concealed-carry card, but those who possess a concealed-carry card are exempt from obtaining a FOID card. There are many other provisions that apply to the FOID card that can be accessed on the ISP website. If you need help with your application, RKA Gun Gallery, 3029 Eldamain Rd., Plano, can assist you with your online application for a $20 fee.

SHAW MEDIA Boxwood blight, a serious fungal disease, has been confirmed in Illinois. According to a University Diagnostic Outreach Extension Specialist, two boxwood samples were submitted to the University of Illinois Plant Clinic in late 2016. The samples came from Lake and Cook counties in northeastern Illinois. Both were from recent landscape additions. “Although the characteristic leaf spots were not apparent on the samples, defoliation and stem cankers were noted,” says Diane Plewa. The samples were quarantined and, after sufficient incubation, fungal spores consistent with the Calonectria spp. fungi were recovered. The

Illinois Department of Agriculture was notified, and samples were sent to the United States Department of Agriculture Animal Plant Health Inspection Service Laboratory in Maryland, where the genus identification was confirmed. Species identification is ongoing.   “To our knowledge, the infected plants were not from Illinois production facilities,” Plewa adds. Symptoms of boxwood blight include leaf spots, stem cankers, and defoliation. Leaf spots usually appear as light or dark brown circular lesions, often surrounded by a large yellow halo. If the infection occurs near the margin of the leaf, the lesion may be semi-circular or V-shaped. Stem cankers are easiest to see on new, green

stem tissue. The cankers are dark brown or black, and are often linear or diamond-shaped. “Defoliation occurs as the final symptom,” says Suzanne Bissonnette, director of the U of I Plant Clinic. “Because these symptoms can be similar to other, common fungal and environmental problems on boxwood, we strongly suggest submitting samples to the U of I Plant Clinic for confirmation. We recommend scouting boxwood and pachysandra plants, especially those that were installed in the last few years or plants that are near host plants that were planted recently.” Boxwood blight is a potentially devastating disease affecting members of the Buxaceae family. The disease has

been found on boxwood, pachysandra, and sarcococca. The disease is caused by the fungi Calonectria pseudonaviculata (syn. Cylindrocladium pseudonaviculatum and C. buxicola) and Calonectria henricotiae. To date, C. henricotiae has not been found in the United States. Bissonnette adds that boxwood blight was formerly federally regulated, but is now regulated at the state level. “Although it can cause widespread death of hosts in the environment, the spores of the pathogen do not appear to travel extensively, reducing its overall impact. However, in production facilities where equipment can be contaminated and expose hundreds or thousands of plants, the pathogen is a much larger concern.”

32 Master Gardeners share knowledge at first Seed Swap

Photos provided

U of I Extension Master Gardeners held a free community Seed Swap event on Feb. 11 in Yorkville. The event allowed community members to share vegetable and flower seeds to both diversify their home gardens and help promote native plant species. Some swapped seeds or others simply collected new seeds to take home. Seeds were donated by Ball Seed, Pizzo & Associates, Plano Community Garden and U of I Extension Master Gardener volunteers. During the seed exchange event, Master Gardeners also answered questions and demonstrated a seed-starting system. To learn more about U of I Extension in Kendall County, call 630-553-5823 or visit web.extension.illinois.edu/dkk. ABOVE: Kendall County Master Gardener Gloria White of Oswego helps Brandon Beerup of Yorkville and Yuliya Nikorich of Aurora with gardening questions during the free community Seed Swap event on Feb. 11 in Yorkville.

Punxsutawney Phil recently announced another six weeks of winter. That is going to be plenty of time for any late winter or very early spring dormant pruning of our shrubs in the home landscape. Keep in mind, dormant pruning needs to be happen before any spring growth resumes. There are several good reasons for dormant pruning. Without the leaves present, we can see the entire plant, looking for dead branches, crossing branches and older branches with insect or disease damage. Pruning before any sap flow also means all overwintering energy in the root systems will go to new and existing buds for regrowth and recovery. You can read books and watch the YouTube videos, yet nothing takes the place of actually getting some “hands on” experience to make you feel comfortable with it. If you already know the plants in the yard, then finding out the best way to prune them is easier. If you are new to the whole yard maintenance scene, then enlist some help in finding out what you have. Even in the winter, fallen leaves at the base of a shrub aid in identi-

Group teaches outdoor skills SHAW MEDIA The Kendall County 4-H Outdoor Skills Club is planning its winter and spring activities for 2017, and there is still time to join. The Outdoor Skills SPIN, or special interest, 4-H Club is designed for youth ages 8 to 18, and it focuses on teaching youth important outdoor and wilderness abilities. Topics include ecology and animals, compass and map use, wilderness planning and packs, safe fires, outdoor cooking, basic first aid, tying knots and more. “Classes are hands-on, with educational games to emphasize what youth learned,” said Kim Eisnaugle, Kend-

all County 4-H program coordinator. “The group takes members throughout the year, and there’s still time to join for winter, spring and summer fun in 2017.” The group meets on Wednesday afternoons twice a month, exploring various topics throughout the seasons and they will visit many forested areas throughout the county. Cost for the program year is $45 per youth, which includes the $25 materials fee to Kendall County 4-H Shooting Sports and the annual 4-H program fee of $20 for the 2016-17 year. Appropriate enrollment and participation forms will be required. While the Outdoor Skills unit is a

part of the larger 4-H Shooting Sports program, it will not include bow or air rifle equipment. If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate, notify organizers at registration. Learn more about this program, visit go.illinois.edu/outdoorskills4Hdkk or call 630-553-5823. 4-H is part of University of Illinois Extension. It is a community of young people across America learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. University of Illinois Extension provides educational programs and research-based information to help Illinois residents improve their quality of life, develop skills and solve problems.

Learn to handle unwanted yard plants SHAW MEDIA Many of the most problematic plant species in our natural areas started out as valued garden plants. Learn how to identify invasive plants species in your yard, and learn how to handle them in an upcoming program from The Conservation Foundation and University of Illinois Extension. Trish Beckjord of The Conservation Foundation and Midwest Groundcovers will present “Unwanted Plants and

What to Do About Them” at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22, in Yorkville. Beckjord will explore the pervasive problem of unwanted and invasive plants, and participants will learn how to identify and remove them. She also will provide alternative plant options to enhance your garden. “Some of these plants you may know as invasive, such as buckthorn, but others may surprise you,” said Sarah Fellerer, U of I Extension Master Naturalist program coordinator for

DuPage, Kane and Kendall counties. “The green industry still sells some problematic species, and you may have even bought and planted some in your own yard in the past.” To learn more or register, visit the “Register Online” section at web.extension.illinois.edu/dkk. There is no charge for this program, but registration is required by Feb. 17. The U of I Extension office of Kendall County is located at 7775B IL Route 47, Yorkville.

KUMLA, HAM AND HISTORY

Dinner raises funds for Fern Dell Museum By KATRINA J.E. MILTON kmilton@shawmedia.com

M

arilynn Thompson, curator and director of the Fern Dell Historic Association, remembers the association’s first Ham and Kumla Supper 32 years ago. During that first supper, batches of kumla, or potato dumplings, fell apart and had to be remade. They were not expecting such a large crowd, so fresh food was continuously being made throughout the evening. The last dinner guests were served at 10 p.m., and after cleaning up, the volunteers went home after midnight. Now, the kitchen volunteers have the meal preparation down to a science. “We peel 500 pounds of potatoes the night before, start cooking 500 pounds of ham at 8 a.m. and start simmering the kumla in the ham broth around noon,” said Van Mathre, co-treasurer of the association. “The men like to cook, so there are 10 men in the kitchen and more than 20 people in the dining room. This year, Boy Scout Troop 45 from Sandwich Katrina J.E. Milton - kmilton@shawmedia.com will help. We are always looking for volunteers.” Fern Dell Historic Association board member Lowell Mathre stands next to the bell from the last engine used on the On average, the supper feeds more than 600 peo- Illinois Midland Railroad, which rain 1.9 miles from Newark to Millington, and looks at a picture.
