In 1940, 16-year-old Sala Garncarz reported to a Nazi slave labor camp.  She thought she would be there for six weeks. 


Over the next five years, a captive in seven different camps, Sala received -- and saved -- more than 350 letters, photographs, and a personal diary.  They were the only connections to her lost family and friends.

A true wartime story of survival, love, and the power of words to sustain life, Sala and her letters have touched thousands of people through the book SALA'S GIFT and the play LETTERS TO SALA
