Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:

General Gouvernment postal stationary card with additional 20 pfg. stamp from Matilda Neuman to Dr. Ernest Fleischaker in Slovakia, showing violet boxed Kamionka uber Lublin 2. Message in German. Nazi censor markings and pink CENSOR 100. Dated June 7, 1942. By October 1942, the Kamionka Jewish council (Judenrat) informed the residents that they would be resettled in the Lubartow ghetto. This was of course a ruse as the Jews of Kamionka were deported to the death camps at Belzec and Sobibor. Many Jews in Kamionka and surrounding villages were shot while attempting to hide.
