Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: A forced laborer from Camp Granew requests a change of payee for money sent to someone in Litzmannstadt. Translation:

"To the oldest Jew in Litzmannstadt.

I am the underground construction worker Willi Kuuperberg. I wrote a postcard on 26 Dec 1941, requesting that Mrs. Jochovich be paid; but I am sorry that I have to hold it back. I am requesting that instead Mrs. Davo be paid out. Please excuse me that I changed my mind.

Respectfully,

Underground Construction worker,

Willy Kuperberg

Camp Grunow."
