    Dear Ms. Gold,
    I am a student at Silver High School in Silver City, New Mexico. I am competing in this year’s National History Day competition. National History Day is a nationwide competition where students create projects based on the years theme and compete against each other at region and state level to hopefully make it to the national competition at Washington D.C. This year’s theme is Taking a Stand in History. I chose to do my paper this year on Chiune Sugihara and how he took a stand by giving so many transit visas to Jewish people in Nazi occupied Poland and Lithuania. I was wondering if you would have the time to do a phone interview, or even over email if that would be easier for you. It would really help me get information to add to my paper.
    Thank you,
    Maryssa Young

    Hi, I was unable to find your email or phone number to contact you, but I was wondering if I would be able to get in touch with you for an interview. Please let me know as soon as you get the chance, thank you.

    Hello Alison, I have just read 2 of your books loaned to me by Sue Ryder. Love in the Second Act, which describes soo many variations on the theme of love in later life. Very interesting and I am thinking that with our improved health and our extending life expectancy, if indeed there is room for love in the 3rd or even 4th act. Then I read ‘Anne Frank Remembered’, a very different read and I will say that I shed many many tears reading it. Like soo many others, I have been fascinated by Anne’s story and to read it from the other side made it whole for me. I was lucky to have been born on the ‘right’ side of politics, when my grandfather had to flee Germany because he had actively spoken out against Hitler. I am grateful for that. And I am grateful that you collaborated to write this very moving and important book, thank you.
