Eva Lassman stands next to the Spokane Community Holocaust Memorial at Temple Beth Shalom in 2005. Lassman, a Holocaust survivor, died in 2011 at 91. She spent the last decades of her life talking to schoolchildren about the Holocaust. In “Eva’s Song,” a poem about her life written by Michael Gurian, Lassman says: “I am a Jew, and Jews were born to plant flowers even in the garden of a thousand sobs.”
