History teacher and class discover Boston’s own Forest Gump

The Briefcase

…they slowly uncovered the life of a man who not only oversaw the liberated Dachau but also found himself a participant in an uncommon number of consequential events throughout Massachusetts and U.S. history. In a way Delaney couldn’t have imagined when he first popped open the suitcase that day, Joyce would turn out to be something akin to Boston’s own Forrest Gump, a perfect set of eyes through which to visit America’s past.

What an amazing find and a great way to engage the students!
