The Center for Lowell History

A City of Refugees

This collection was donated to the University of Massachusetts Lowell Center for Lowell History by Dorothea Gemos Tsapasaris. Dorothea taught English as a Second Language [ESL] in the Lowell Schools. She was one of the first educators in the late 1980s, early 1990s to gather the stories and artwork of her young students' lives in Cambodia and arrange to have them published in the national children's literary magazine "Stone Soup."
