From 1940-1942, Rita sent postcards, six of which are on exhibit, pleading for news of her parents. Each postcard tells a heartbreaking story of separation and loss, themes echoed in the personal narrative of Holocaust Survivor, Eva Brettler who will speak to the loss of her own mother as an 8-year-old girl.RSVP for opening reception to firstname.lastname@example.org or (323)456-5083.
