Text: English (translation)From Library Journal:
This is a compilation of last letters and notes written by Jews who perished in the Holocaust. The writings were gathered from the Yad Vashem Archives in Israel. They were written in desperation and were often dropped from transport trains in the hope that their thoughts and feelings would reach their loved ones in Israel or America. The book can be opened to any page, and the writings will be sure to move the reader. The letters can best be symbolized by one brief document addressed to the unknown and written by simple Jews. Each name is spelled out so that it may be recalled by future generations; the exhortation to remember is par amount. This book provides a pathway into the writings of the Holocaust. It is recommended for most large popular collections; libraries with strong Judaica and Holocaust holdings will surely want it.
