NJ Star Ledger: Wartime Letters of Love and History

The NJ Star ledger writes about POBA’s project on the art of letter writing. In the process of archiving, cataloging and evaluating the WWII wartime correspondence between Hy and Sandy Schulman, the POBA Concierge service discovered both an amazing record of personal love during difficult wartime circumstances and another story of historical significance as well: Among the more than 1000 letters capturing this period, many of these letters also reveal the very personal and direct participation of these regular folks in the important historic events surrounding the liberation and resettlement of Jewish survivors of the concentration camps. The NJ Star ledger focuses on their love story, chronicled in letters that have themselves survived 70 years.
