For Rebecca Boehling and Uta Larkey, their book Life and Loss in the Shadow of the Holocaust probably would not have been possible without Suzanne Ostrand-Rosenberg. A colleague of Rebecca’s at University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Sue discovered a box of about 200 wartime letters that her mother had exchanged with her family during wartime Germany. (Ultimately, with the help of cousins living in Israel and Chile, over 600 correspondences were collected.) In this video, she sits down with Rebecca to talk about how the project started.
Stay tuned for two more videos featuring the fascinating back story of Life and Loss in the Shadow of the Holocaust (on sale 9/13).
