Summary:
Mia Hasterlik writes to Giulia Kortischoner, stressing that it is of upmost importance that Giulia learn English so that when she comes to the US she will be able to get a high school degree, which Mia believes is necessary in order to obtain a decent job in the US. She also describes her daily life in New York with her boyfriend Thomas and gives updates on family members. Mia is close to getting American citizenship, which she expects to obtain by the end of the year. She expresses her disgust with what happened to Paul Hasterlik (his death in a concentration camp), and says she could never return to Austria despite the supposed "golden Viennese hearts" that people there possess.
