LETTERS TO SALA: A YOUNG WOMAN’S LIFE IN NAZI LABOR CAMPS
Exhibition at the New York Public Library
March 7 to June 17, 2006
5th Avenue and 42nd Street

This extraordinary exhibition will be the first time that the “Letters
to Sala,” more than 350 letters received in Nazi labor camps, will be
shown to the public. Through the vivid and touching letters, we witness
an unprecedented account of the Nazi regime written by the victims
themselves. The exhibition includes the only known correspondence of
Ala Gertner, later hanged at Auschwitz for her role in the only armed
uprising at the death camp.

SALA’S GIFT by Ann Kirschner will be published by Free Press in
November, 2006. The Letters are also the subject of a documentary film
by Academy-nominated director Murray Nossel, whose films have appeared
on HBO and PBS, and a theatrical performance directed by OBIE
award-winner Lawrence Sacharow, who directed Edward Albee’s Pulitzer
Prize winning play, Three Tall Women.
