There must be a budding writer in the extended family, or someone from Buckman or Pierz township, who could effectively write the story that played out over Catholic and public schools between 1888 and 1955 in Pierz. No, it wasn't JUST Pierz, but that's where it was most intense and most divisive.
Bombs were set. People were excommunicated. Families were divided (possibly even Heschs).
The problem went on for so long and so many were embroiled in it, that it must have seemed like a way of life eventually.
Whoever writes this novel will need to do one helluva lotta research, but what an interesting book it'll be.
