Years after her grandparents passed away, journalist Sarah Wildman discovered a cache of love letters sent to her grandfather by a former lover in prewar Vienna. In her debut book, Paper Love, Wildman details her search to discover information about the mysterious woman, her family’s escape from Nazi persecution, and all that was left behind. Wildman will discuss the Museum’s important role in her research as she pieced together the story of a woman who was desperate to escape Europe and still clinging to the memory of a love that defined her years of freedom.

 

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required at ushmm.org/events/lost-love-md. For questions, contact the Museum’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Office at 202.488.0420 or ccampbell@ushmm.org.
