Helen "Cassie" Cassiani - Bridgewater native
Our Fall 2013 selection is We Band of Angels by Elizabeth Norman. Norman's book tells the story of army nurses who were imprisoned in Bataan by the Japanese during World War II. One of the women featured in the book is Helen "Cassie" Cassiani who hailed from Bridgewater. Her grave is located in town and we will be placing a wreath on it later this fall. This newspaper article from The Brockton Enterprise (February 6, 1945) was written after she was released.
