Abstract

Falbel describes the process by which she and her brother and parents were saved from Austria on the eve of WWII through the determined efforts of an aunt and uncle in America, and subsequent failed attempts to obtain exit visas for her grandparents. Included are seven letters from among hundreds that were sent between family members in different countries, describing countless applications, petitions to embassies and aid organizations, as well as the arrests and round-ups that began to occur with increasing regularity.
