Evelyn Cochran was a social worker with the Red Cross during World War II. She wrote 26 letters “back home” with eye witness accounts of wartime England and post-war Germany. Writing from November 1944-October 1946, Evelyn provided a unique perspective on living conditions, the war’s impact on the average person, attitudes about Roosevelt’s death, seeing General Eisenhower, celebrating Victory in Europe day in London, and, later, Victory in Japan day. Re-assigned to post-war Germany, Evelyn visited the Nuremberg Trials twice and wrote detailed letters about her observations. She described her visit to the mystic Therese Neumann. Her work took her to Paris, Italy, Austria, and Holland, and she wrote home about all her experiences. Through her letters, the reader experiences World War II in a unique and personal way.
