These are letters I wrote for an RS project. They are from the POV of Jewish Prisoners of War during the Holocaust in WW2. The first bit is what I used as the 'description' of my piece, (the letters were tied up in a bundle along with some pictures, with the auction lot thing at the front).
This is in novel form as I didn't want to to put them all in one short story. It didn't feel right.
I know this is a touchy subject but I wanted to publish these on here to make people more aware of the horrific events.
