SummaryThis volume includes letters written to Leon Komar from family members in the Warsaw Ghetto. At the time, Leon Komar was living in Glasgow, Scotland where he was studying. Leon Komar writes, "The series of letters, written in Polish, begin on August 6, 1938 and end in 1942 when my Aunt Balbina was forcibly deported to Treblinka annihilation camp, and my mother and brother were caught trying to move into the country to get away from the ghetto. Although most of these letters were written in the ghetto and deal with personal matters, one can always read behind the lines and sense the anguish, frustration and despair emanating from them." —Page 2
