On August 24, 1942, just a few days before she entered Thereseienstadt concentration camp, Valli Ollendorff wrote this letter to her middle son. Secure in the knowledge that Ulrich was safe in America, and fearful of what the future held for her, Valli poured out her fear and longing, as well as her love and hope, in this brief document. Valli died less than two months later and her remarkable letter was lost for forty-three years. Now, thanks to the courage and generosity of Valli’s descendants, families worldwide can share its universal message.
