Remembering JFK from German Kindergarten

STORY BY: Margit Stein
YEAR: 1963
LOCATION: Dortmund, Germany

Margit was in Kindergarten in Dortmund, West Germany, when John F Kennedy was shot in 1963. The kids were taken outside, not understanding what was going on, nor knowing where America was. Still, she remembers it all very clearly, and how awful that day was for everyone. Thanks for sharing, Margit.
