Ten Sisters

Special | 56m 33s | Video has closed captioning.

In 1942, while their two older brothers served in World War II, the courts separated ten sisters in a brief legal proceedings in Coles County Courthouse, Charleston, Illinois. Two were adopted, one went to live with grandparents, five were sent to an orphanage and the others worked for families and organizations. It took fifty years to heal the wounds caused on that winter day in 1942.
