What are Ellen Stofan's plans for the nation's most visited museum?
First she finds the snapshots of her grandfather’s “true love”–left behind when he fled Nazi-occupied Vienna in 1938. Then she discovers the letters from the young woman, desperate to escape Europe as the Nazis bore down. Journalist Sarah Wildman follows the letters into archives, history books and the streets of European capitals, searching for the fate of the woman left behind. Her new book, “Paper Love,” recounts life under the Nazis, life rebuilt in America, and the family narratives that terror survivors and immigrants pass on.
- Sarah Wildman Journalist and frequent contributor to The New York Times; Author of "Paper Love: Searching for the Girl My Grandfather Left Behind" (Riverhead Books, 2014)
