Every Day Lasts A Year: A Jewish Family's Correspondence from Poland
Edited by Christopher Browning, Richard S. Hollander, and Remember the Women Institute Advisory Board Member Nechama Tec
Cambridge University Press, Hardback (ISBN-13: 9780521882743), Published October 2007

Richard Hollander was devastated when his parents were killed in an automobile accident in 1986. While rummaging through their attic, he discovered letters from a family he never knew -- his father’s mother, three sisters, and their husbands and children. The letters, neatly stacked in a briefcase, were written from Krakow, Poland, between 1939 and 1942. They depict day-to-day life under the most extraordinary pain and stress. At the same time, Richard’s father, Joseph Hollander, was fighting the United States government to avoid deportation and death. Richard was astounded to learn that his father saved the lives of many Polish Jews, but -- despite heroic efforts -- could not save his family.
