Levine’s Department Store was an important place in Windsor for years. As a part of Windsor’s 250th anniversary celebration Eva Scheib was asked to write a history of the store, which her family purchased in 1942. Her story will become part of a history book of Windsor sponsored by the 250th Celebration Committee.
Coincidentally, during the week of Valentine’s Day 2018, the same week that Eva Scheib was writing this story of her family’s escape from Nazi Germany to Windsor, her son Sam was attending school at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida when a fellow student opened fire, shot and killed seventeen people. Sam escaped and is one of the several students seen fleeing in a video broadcast on national news.
