Ronald Corp: Letters from Lony

Letters from Lony tells the story of Leonie (‘Lony’) Rabl in her own words. A German-Jewish exile from Nazism, she ran the Café de Paris in Amsterdam, writing when she could to her daughter and family, safe in England; two further letters survive from after her deportation, on the journey that took her via Theresienstadt to Auschwitz. Ronald Corp sets Lony’s letters as accompanied arioso, all the more moving for its understatement.
