Alison Leslie Gold, known best for her work on Anne Frank and the Holocaust, relates a personal memoir, centred on recent losses of loved ones and on various findings that to some extent offset the losses. This is explored through a series of letters, a meditation on ageing, friendship, and the sort of ‘translation’ required when writing to the dead. Her text is accompanied by 13 paintings from Charlotte Salomon’s timeless masterpiece Leben? oder Teater?
Alison Leslie Gold is an American author, best known for her research about the Holocaust and Anne Frank.

An editorial note on the paintings of Charlotte Salomon

Editorial Reviews

"Gold makes the unfinished finished, in the frame of death, another kind of silence. In her epistolary cahier Lost and Found, she departs from her work as a Holocaust historian into the realm of personal grief. We see the imperfections of memory butting up against the limitations of record-keeping. In the wake of death, we're left with the material remains of a life, an apartment full of treasure to the deceased, now trash to the living, and a collection of unanswered letters."
