Many people don’t realize that I have been making recordings while reading each letter aloud, a result of friends telling me that they have trouble deciphering the handwriting. So in each post, I have made a slideshow that flashes past while I am narrating the letters. Just make sure your sound is on and click on the arrow on the slideshow.
If you plan to continue reading this blog, please follow me now so as to give me the incentive to continue every day!
To enlarge the pages of the letter so that they are legible, click on the first page. This will allow you to enlarge for reading and will provide access to the other pages along the bottom of the screen.
A rough translation of the Yiddish: Dear Mom, I know that you will have a much easier time reading this little letter than I had reading your small letter. I will only say that I am healthy and strong. I hope for you that I will soon be in your home with all my dear ones. Stay healthy and happy my dear “mominka.” I am your devoted son, Philip.
