Story Saturday: Russell Shefrin
This week on Story Saturday we are featuring Russell Shefrin! Russell grew up on the grounds at Ray Brook Sanatorium. After curing from TB at Trudeau Sanatorium, Russell's father took a job at Ray Brook. In this excerpt from a 2013 interview, Russell describes his childhood home and the curious experience of seeing replicas of that home at a number of other state facilities.
