Please join the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center, Congregation Emanu-El, and The German International School New York for Last Letters: The Prison Correspondence on Monday, January 25 at 7:15 p.m. from the comfort and safety of your own home.
In commemorating International Holocaust Day, we will be discussing letters brought to life by Johannes von Moltke and Dorothea von Moltke, grandchildren of Freya and Helmuth von Moltke. In September, 1944, Helmuth von Moltke is in Berlin awaiting trail and presumably execution for his opposition to the dictatorship. The Nazis are unware that the prison chaplain is smuggling letters between Helmuth and his wife, Freya. The two write almost daily sharing their fears, emotions, and experiences until January, 1945, when he is tried, found guilty and executed.
