Letters provide a window into their writer’s profound hopes and fears. We will read a series of letters sent by Marie Bader, a Jewish widow in occupied Prague, to her widower friend Ernst Löwy, in Thessaloniki. The letters span the period 1940 to 1942, when Marie was deported to Theresienstadt. They paint a vivid, dramatic, and moving picture of Jewish life in Heydrich’s Prague.
