Preserved Letters

96 year old Eleanor Legate.

Eleanor Wolfe, now 96 years young, has a letter close to her heart. But she’s donating it so that this spring it can be featured when the Centre for American War Letters opens at Chapman University. It’s getting harder for people to connect to the war as it moves further away, but the Centre has over a hundred thousand letters to let people experience each American war from the eyes of servicemen and women. Eleanor’s letter from her husband details the liberation of a concentration camp at the end of the Second World War. She hopes that through this letter, future generations will understand the importance of people like her husband. Amy Legate-Wolfe has the story.
