Ida Lichtenwald Hettinger was a Russian German who was part of the forced deportation to Siberia in 1941. The collection contains original letters written between 1993 and 2002 to distant family in the United States, which she located through answering an ad in Neues Leben. Much of the content of the letters is about her extended family and personal history. The original letters are written in German; many of the letters have an English translation provided by Harold Stoll.
