Safe Haven Tour
Members of the Safe Haven Board of Directors shared the Safe Haven story with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's staff during a recent tour of the museum. Located at 2 East Seventh Street in Oswego, the Safe Haven Museum and Education Center is dedicated to the amazing story of the 982 Holocaust refugees who lived at Fort Ontario as guests of President Franklin D. Roosevelt during World War II. Oswego was the only place in the United States to accept Holocaust survivors. From left are Cindy Tascarella, Lois Reed, Mary Ciappa, Mary Ellen Barbeau; Kyla Clark and Colleen Deacon of Senator Gillibrand's Syracuse regional office; Bob Davidson, Board President Ron Tascarella, and Judy Coe-Rapaport.
