Bay College’s Diversity Committee is once again partnering with Tri-County Safe Harbor (Escanaba) and The Caring House (Iron Mountain) to bring The Clothesline Project to both Bay College campuses. The Clothesline Project honors women who have survived or been the victims of intimate violence. Any woman who has experienced such violence, at any time in her life, is encouraged to design a shirt. Victim and Survivors’ families and friends are also invited to participate. Through this project, victims are able to decorate a t-shirt as a vehicle to express their stories, emotions, and testimonies against domestic violence.

Peter Stein was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia to a Catholic mother and a Jewish father two years before the German occupation of Czechoslovakia. In March 1939 the German Army occupied the country and began harassing Jews. His father and eight members of his father’s family were arrested, sent to Terezin (Theresienstadt) and eventually sent to Auschwitz — all except his father were murdered.
