The Unanswered Letter: One Holocaust Family’s Desperate Plea for Help
The Unanswered Letter: One Holocaust Family’s Desperate Plea for Help4.5 2 5 Author: Faris Cassell Narrator: Kate Mulligan
In August 1939, just days before World War II broke out in Europe, a Jewish man in Vienna named Alfred Berger mailed a desperate letter to a stranger in America who shared his last name.
By pure chance I got your address … I beg you instantly to send for me and my wife …
Decades later, journalist Faris Cassell stumbled upon the stunning letter and became determined to uncover the story behind it. How did the American Bergers respond? Did Alfred and his family escape Nazi Germany? Over a decade-long investigation, Cassell traveled thousands of miles; explored archives and offices in Austria, Belarus, Israel, and the Czech Republic; interviewed descendants; and found letters, photos, and sketches made by family members during the Holocaust.
This is Cassell’s account of the devastating true story of The Unanswered Letter.
