Victoria McGrath - Oral History


Thanks to the hard work of Potoula Tournas, a Northeastern University student who is working with the archive as part of an advanced writing course, we were able to conduct an oral history with Victoria McGrath, pictured here. Victoria was standing by Sugary Haven when the first bomb went off, and shrapnel from the pressure cooker almost fatally injured her. Though she does speak of the pain and struggles she has endured since that day, Victoria's stories wonderfully capture the spirit of community and perseverance after tragedy.
