It is 1941 in Poland. 16 year old Sala volunteers to take her sister’s place at a labor camp, which begins an odyssey that will take her to seven Nazi labor camps during the course of World War II. Every letter she receives from home is saved, hidden and transported to the next destination- over 300 letters in five years. In 2005, when an elderly Sala reveals her collection to her daughter, a struggle ensues among three generations of women. Should the letters be kept as personal family history or donated as historical documentation of the Holocaust? Based on the true account as told in Ann Kirschner’s book Sala’s Gift.
