Shortly before he was interned in 1940, Vishniac had entrusted his negatives to friend Walter Bierer in Paris. In this letter to Mara Vishniac Kohn, written shortly after Vishniac’s death, Walter Bierer describes how he managed to transport the photographer’s negatives from Europe to the United States via Cuba.
