Book Discussion – The Letters Project – A Daughter’s Journey by Eleanor Reissa


May 4, 2023    
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Please join us on Zoom as we discuss ‘The Letters Project – a Daughter’s Journey’ by Eleanor Reissa.

As described in the book:  “Fifty-six of them. In German. Written in 1949. Letters from her father to her mother, when they were courting. Just four years earlier, he had fought to stay alive in Auschwitz and on the Death March while she had spent the war years suffering in Uzbekistan. Thirty years later, Eleanor—a theatre artist who has been on the forefront of keeping Yiddish alive— finally had the letters translated. The particulars of those letters send her off on an unimaginable adventure into the past, forever changing her and anyone who reads this book.”
