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!

Rough Yiddish Translation: My love and dearest son, I can write to you and hope today is a happy day and I am elated from reading this letter with your good news. We will count every day and every hour until you come home. The idea that was given from you is very good. That you got the guarantee today were God-given words. —Mother
