Dear Marta:

It has been a pleasure and an honor to know you over the years I’ve been with

Congratulations on the growing success of your new career and I wish you the

Subject: [baisl] thank you and farewell

Hello wonderful librarians -- I'd like to thank you for years of great advice 
and camaraderie as I prepare to depart from Drew at the end of this semester 
after 16 1/2 years . I'm moving on to pursue my professional speaking career, 
Holocaust education, clinical work, and writing.
I am grateful to BAISL for awarding me the Professional Development Award to do 
research in Hungary for my book, Legacy of Rescue: A Daughter's Tribute. I also 
appreciate the opportunity afforded me to subsequently present my research to 
the membership.

Next month I will be presenting at Bay School for their morning assembly, 
relating the story of my father's rescuer to their theme this year examining 
decision making. As many of you know, my key message is that each one of us can 
make a difference in everyday life.

In December I'll be the featured speaker in a city-wide commemoration in 
Santiago, Chile, where I'll also be conducting workshops in Spanish and 
Hungarian, and talking with school kids about the Holocaust and my family's 
experience, particularly the Righteous Gentile who saved my father and his 
slave labor battalion of over 100 Jewish men.  In January, I will be conducting 
workshops in London at an international conference for Holocaust survivors and 
their descendants.

After December you may reach me at my website, 

Wishing you all a great new academic year!

With gratitude,


Marta Fuchs, MLS, MFT
