Letters from the Depression: Part 1 (1930-1931)

We’re pleased to announce the publication of the first of a series of translated letters between Ernst and Lotte Franke — between small town Germany and big town New York — during the Great Depression. It’s a unique and personal account of both US and German history at this very pivotal time. This 237-page book contains about 115 letters, spanning April 1, 1930 to March 29, 1931, and is supplemented with footnotes, indexes, and online content.
