This is the story of a former slave, now an abolitionist.

Interviewee: Helia LaJeunesse
Interviewer: Peggy Callahan
Interviewee Status: Free now, has also freed her children from slavery
Interview date: 6/15/07
Interview location: Haiti

When Helia LaJeunesse was five years old, her mother died. She went to live with her grandmother until she too passed away. A neighbor took Helia in until she was about twelve years old. The woman of the house made Helia do all the cleaning and all of the chores around the house. Helia was verbally and physically abused, and she wasn’t allowed to go to school. Even the neighbors would tell the woman that she was mistreating Helia. The woman would reply that since she didn’t have a family, Helia was an animal, and should be treated like an animal. Not until the community threatened to burn down the woman’s house did she let Helia go to communion class.
