The photo taken in Warsaw, Poland, Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2011 shows a handwritten letter in Yiddish that writer Naftali Herts Kon wrote to his wife and two daughters from a prison in Warsaw, Poland, in the early 1960's when he believed he would be deported to the Soviet Union. For exposing the shortcomings of communism, Kon, whose real name was Jakub Serf, served years in Soviet labor camps and then in Poland's prison, and had his poetry and newspaper articles seized by the security in both countries. Some are housed at the City of Warsaw Archives. Now his two daughters are trying to obtain the late writer's works back, but are hitting a bureaucracy wall in Poland.
