Deborah Slier-Shine and Ian Shine discuss a treasure trove of letters and postcards accidentally discovered during demolition work in Amsterdam in 1997. Written by an eighteen year-old Dutch-Jewish boy by the name of Philip "Flip" Slier, the letters document the ongoing destruction of Dutch Jewry that Flip experienced firsthand. Deborah Slier-Shine and Ian Shine spent seven years researching Flip's final years, a journey that took them from the Dutch forced labor camps of Vught and Westerbork to Sobibor in Poland.
