Deborah Levine, daughter of a World War II military intelligence officer, shares first-hand stories of WW II and the Holocaust including the wartime letters of her father, Aaron Levine, who was assigned to interrogate Nazi prisoners of war.
And you’ll hear the wartime love letters of Estelle Malloy, a Special Education pioneer whom Aaron married after they graduated from Harvard University. Lastly, you’ll hear the memoirs of Polish Holocaust Survivor, Leon Weisband.
But first, we’ll start at the beginning – with Aaron’s immigrant roots from the Ukraine region and Estelle’s childhood in Bermuda in the only Jewish family to have lived on the island for 4 generations.
