Download pdf | Full Screen View

Summary:
Boni writes to Giulia Kortischoner, saying he cannot believe that seven years have already passed from when he last saw her, when she was just a child. He gives more information about Paul Hasterlik, saying that in his last days in Vienna he had to live in a one-bedroom apartment. One day his room was found empty and it was discovered that he had been sent to Theresienstadt. Although this was horrible, Theresienstadt was a relatively "good" camp, as the Nazis often sent journalists there to show them that the concentration camps supposedly weren't so bad. He says that Giulia's letters throughout her polio recovery were a joy to them both. He says that life in Vienna is not good due to a scarcity of goods and the fact that it is always so cold there.
