Brooklyn In Love and At War

This blog looks at the nation’s history as filtered through relationship between my grandparents. Sylvia, the grandmother that I never knew, and my grandfather Alex, wrote hundreds of letters to each other during the years that Alex was stationed abroad during WWII. Through these letters I hope to illuminate Brooklyn's history, America's history and my personal family history.

Each post examines a letter that helps the story of two people unfold as they navigate their relationship with each other and with the war.

Here is a link to the first post on this blog:
