Description: Eleanor Reissa is Tony and Drama Desk-nominated actor, writer and director active in both English and Yiddish Theatre. The daughter of Holocaust fighters, she has released the memoir The Letters Project: A Daughter's Journey, which chronicles her discovery of her father's letters to her mother after surviving Auschwitz, his testimony to receive reparations, and his journey to America. Eleanor's research takes her from Brooklyn to Germany, where she uncovers a whole other side of her father's legacy. She also shares an anecdote about Bob Dylan. The Letters Project is out now.
