Home from Purgatory - Book Information
"The original photo exposé, Christmas in Purgatory, shockingly documented the inhumane conditions of institutionalization for the generations of us who were drawn to the field of disability as a civil and human rights issue. Home from Purgatory provides a wrenching chronicle for younger generations to understand this not-so-distant past, while celebrating the lives of individuals who made change and those who lived through such difficult circumstances and now are living lives of community and contribution." - Deborah M. Spitalnik, Ph.D., The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities
