These are excerpts from letters written by Leonard Grossman's mother Trudel. Trudel was a young German Jewish woman who arrived in Chicago in May, 1934. There is much more about Trudel and her experiences on the blog Trudel's Truth by Leonard Grossman, one of Trudel's sons. That blog is a record of the young immigrant's letters home. The only parts of the letters that are included here are the parts that mention the Chicago World's Fair.
