Book Summary:

The present book emerged from three ledgers the author inherited from his parents after their deaths. These ledgers contain letters from his grandfather and uncle in a Netherlands under the severe yoke of Nazi-Germany, and copies of letters his father wrote describing life in the U.S. They give a fascinating insight into the way two Jewish families had to deal with the hardships of the Nazi occupation, and into the life of a displaced family in the U.S. during the war. The intelligence of the writers has succeeded in conveying messages which the censors fortunately missed.
