Shortly before the outbreak of World War 2, a young German man living in Berlin began writing to a young American lady living in California. Their bond was stamp collecting, and they exchanged rarities from the two countries. Soon they would become entangled in the horrors of war.
Despite the outbreak of war, their friendship did not falter and they continued their correspondence. The original letters vividly describe the desperate situation during the war and the hardships of the aftermath, a firsthand source from the unique perspective of two people on opposing sides. Complied by Helmut Peters, the son of the German soldier, the story evolves with the pathos of the letters; it is your own conscience that will be captured in the poignancy of how kindness can save lives.
