Town Lubec

County Washington


In 1936, 14 school children died over the course of one summer in Lubec, Maine. The tragedies cast a long shadow over the town and for years nobody spoke about the deaths. That is, until Vicki Reynolds Schad, a descendant of two of the children lost that summer, decided to help break the silence. What followed is the story of a small town finally speaking about a grief that had been buried for nearly one hundred years. Producer Marina Henke has the story.
