Life in the Ghettos and Camps

Letters Home offers visitors an intimate glimpse into the lives of those who endured the ghettos and camps of the Holocaust. Often with oddly hopeful messages, they give us a glimmer of understanding about what life was like for people caught up in those terrible times. These brief insights are what remembrance is all about — remembering the humanity of each person lost.
