Eleanor Reissa, a prominent actress and singer in Jewish theater, delivers an intimate account of her journey into her parents’ past with The Letters Project. After her mother died, Reissa discovered a cache of letters written by her father just after WWII, and she travels to Poland and Germany to discover more about her father and how the war impacted her family. Described as a tough, honest, and often funny memoir that takes readers on an unexpected mystery tour back in time through Germany and Israel — where the dead speak — in this daughter’s journey down the rabbit hole of her family’s Holocaust.
