This book explores the Holocaust in Romania between 1941 and 1944, during which 410,000 mostly Jewish people were captured in camps and later killed. Before they died, many of them sent letters to friends and acquaintances asking for help. The letters were retained and never delivered. These letters show the misery of the victims, their living conditions, and their hopes and fears. They enable unique insight into this lesser-known tragedy and serve as a memorial for those who died. For this publication, 213 of these letters were transliterated and translated into English, Ukrainian, and Romanian.
