  6. Who Can Remember? Hanukkah Story

    (NOTE: Sandy Brusin explains her motivation for writing this most beautiful story in the following way: “I wrote the story because I don’t like any of the children’s stories about Hanukah I’ve seen.

The schmaltz stories usually have Iatkes sizzling in a pan—with mommy, of course, doing all the sizzling; and the baloney stories make a big deal out of the oil burning for eight days. I wanted to present the wonder of the story.
