Stranded

Here’s a cool idea for a blog. Naomi is blogging the entries she found in a diary written by her grandmother in 1914 who was stranded in Europe when WWI broke out.

Dora Lourie (or Lurie) wrote this diary in July to August 1914 while on an educational trip to Europe, arranged through the Polytechnic of Central London. She and her group were in Switzerland as war was declared, and after travelling back to Liverpool became one of 120,000 US citizens repatriated by the US government.
