Greetings from author Germaine W. Shames.

I have been entrusted with writing a biography of the Hungarian ballerina/choreographer, Margit Wolf. Wolf, born in Budapest in 1910, passed through the infamous Brick Factory en route to Ravensbruck, Spandau and Sachsenhausen. Evidence suggests that Wolf acted with uncommon heroism to save the lives of her fellow Jews. Yet little is known about her, and any record of her artistic achievements has disappeared from the archives of the Hungarian State Opera.

I am searching for anyone who might have known Margit Wolf or come into possession of letters either from her or mentioning her. Information will be gratefully received:

Thanks for your time, and all the best.
