This summer, I had the privilege of "breaking bread" with Sarah Litvin, the director of the Reher Center for Immigrant Culture and History As a public history start-up, the Reher Center understands the importance of forging emotional connections between visitors and the stories of the past. According to the center's website, the organization's mission is to "preserve and present stories with universal appeal about immigration, community, work and bread."
