COTE SAINT-LUC, Quebec — If you need proof of the Anne Frank dictum (“In spite of everything, I still believe people are really good at heart”) — if you doubt there is a poetry to paying it forward — if you wonder whether life can reveal a virtuous circle when on the cruel surface, it takes the form of a vicious circle — then linger for a moment on the story of Lucia Buchwald, who sold chickens and eggs in a tiny farm community overrun by the Nazis, and Nataliia [cq] Mariichyn, who this summer is living in an apartment here.
