Anna Semionovna was a Russian Jewish doctor from a small Ukrainian village. The Last Letter was the one she wrote in 1941 to her son, a famous physician who lived far from the front lines in a Soviet scientific institution. She wrote it a few days before she was killed, like all the other Jews of the town, by the Germans.
