Letters to Sala: A Young Woman's Life in Nazi Labor Camps

Release Date: 2008-11-05

For nearly 50 years, Sala Kirschner’s struggle for freedom during the Holocaust was kept a secret. After surviving five years of Nazi work camps, she came to America and never spoke of her wartime experiences until 1991, when she revealed a collection of about 350 letters, photographs, postcards, and a diary from her years in the camps to her daughter, Ann Kirschner. The collection is part of the New York Public Library’s permanent collection. Free, 1pm reception, San Antonio Public Library, 600 Soledad, salasgift.com.
