Summary"In early 1943, Mirjam Levie from Amsterdam, began to write letters to her fiance Leo Bolle, who had immigrated to Eretz Israel a few years earlier. Her letters, which were never sent, were written during the deportations from Amsterdam, her incarceration in Westerbork, and her imprisonment in Bergen Belsen. As secretary in the [Joodsche Raad voor Amsterdam (Jewish Council of Amsterdam)], Mirjam's letters are the only source remaining to describe events from the viewpoint of one of its members. The book presents these unique and moving letters, forming a personal diary of real time." —Publisher of English edition
