Research Trip to Warsaw

$405 of $1,200 goal

Raised by 10 people in 1 month
My name is Emily Ann Putzke and I love writing and history. I love them so much, in fact, that I've written three historical novellas and a WWII novel. This year I'm starting a new writing project about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising which happened 75 years ago this April. 


For the past two years I've been researching the perilous and courageous acts of the Jews of Warsaw during 1943. When the Nazis began deporting them from the ghetto to Treblinka, the Jews made the choice to fight back. They smuggled in weapons and fought the Nazis for 28 days. In addition to armed resistance, they also wrote journals, letters, poems, drew pictures, and collected stories which they buried on the eve of the Uprising. They were determined that even after their deaths, their voices would not be silenced and the world would know what had happened. 


I have the incredible opportunity to do on-site research for my book this July. I will be traveling to Poland and Germany with the National WWII Museum to study the Holocaust and 20th century Poland under world-renowned historian Alexandra Richie, DPhil at a private university in Warsaw. I will also be able to visit various historical sites in Berlin, Warsaw, Krakow, and Gdańsk, intern at museums, and much more!


As you can imagine, this trip will be very expensive and the final payment is due April 2nd. While I'm working hard to pay for the bulk of my trip, I would be so grateful if you would consider helping me raise money for my airfare to Warsaw, Poland.

If you donate $25 or more and live in the United States, I would be happy to send you an autographed copy of my WWII novel, RESIST. I also have limited autographed copies of my novellas, IT TOOK A WAR and AIN'T WE GOT FUN available. You can check out the synopsis of my books and stay updated my Warsaw novel by going to  www.authoremilyannputzke.com.

Thank you very much!
