“Letters to Sala: A Young Woman’s Life in Nazi Labor Camps” Exhibition Opens

February 17 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Letters to Sala: A Young Woman’s Life in Nazi Labor Camps

On display February 17 – August 19, 2018

This exhibition is based on a compelling collection of rare Holocaust-era letters and photographs now in The New York Public Library Dorot Jewish Division. From handwritten postcards to photographs and official documents, each was saved at great personal risk by Sala Garncarz from the time she entered her first of seven Nazi labor camps in 1940 until her liberation in 1945. The collection and narrative provide a rare first-hand view into the human drama that unfolded among Jews forced to work as slave laborers and those who loved and wrote them as long as they could.
