Letters Never Sent:Amsterdam, Westerbork, Bergen-Belsen by: Mirjam Bolle

In 1943, Mirjam Levie, a young Jewish woman from Amsterdam began writing letters to her fiance’, Leo Bolle who had immigrated to Israel.

This book is a compilation of those letters that she never got to send. She was deported to Westerbork and then Bergen-Belsen and she wrote these letters during that time.

She managed to hide her letters and brought them with her when she was released.

She arrived to her fiance’ in Israel in 1944, and as the secretary of the “Jewish Council of Amsterdam,” she brought her letters forward which can be considered as both historical and personal documents.

A very heartfelt and unique look at this time in history.

This book can be purchased at the Yad Vashem on-line store for $18.00
