Sweet Noise: Love in Wartime by Max Hirshfeld
With essays by Michael Berenbaum and Stuart E. Eizenstat
Raised by Polish Jewish parents in small-town Alabama in the ’50s and ’60s, American photographer Max Hirshfeld (born 1951) tells his parents’ Nazi-era love story through photographs and hundreds of post-war letters. The material collected in Sweet Noise grapples with a 75-year-old legacy yet remains eerily timely.
