JONESTOWN SURVIVOR: An Insider’s Look Book Review « jonestownsurvivor
Soon after this, Synanon, a residential community, helped her gradually affirm life. In , she got to work, finished her studies, and became a public school teacher. On the 20th anniversary of the deaths in Jonestown, she looked up fellow survivors of the Jonestown tragedy and they have worked to put the jigsaw puzzle together that was Peoples Temple. Her perspective has evolved as new facts have cleared up mysteries and she has had time to reflect. Her mission continues to be to acknowledge, write about, and speak about why the members joined Peoples Temple, why they went to Guyana, and who they were.
Kohl and many of the other temple members participated wholeheartedly in activities such as panhandling on the streets to raise funds for the temple. Kohl and her friends truly believed they were working towards a better temple, a better community, and a better world. They honestly felt each and every action would transform the world, making it a place where everyone would accept the integration of races and shining focus on the needy and homeless.
Plans began for the Peoples Temple Agricultural Project, and author Kohl eventually moved to Jonestown, Guyana to participate in the initial ground-up construction of a viable community there. She split her time between Jonestown and Georgetown.
On the surface to temple members all seemed to be well. But following the investigation of the IRS into the questionable tax-exempt status of the temple as well as increasing concern raised by the public and others for temple members, Jones made the decision to convince his people to kill themselves. And they did.
