Hear readings from a selection of poignant letters written during the Holocaust. The letters from the Sydney Jewish Museum’s collection, written in tragic times, have such deep meaning. Some letters are read by survivors who were the recipients, and others are read by family members of those who wrote or received them. Many were the last letter ever written by those desperately seeking help. Geraldine Doogue will host this very special event.
