Seven Harding Middle School eighth graders were privileged to hear stories from two survivors of World War Two on Monday, Oct. 17. Former German citizens Briggette and Manfred Porschke spoke about what it was like during and after the war. Rationing, living conditions, food, American soldiers, and air raid shelters were just a few of the topics mentioned. The eighth graders are also learning about the war through their reading of the Newbery Medal book "Number the Stars" by Lois Lowry.
