Description

Front: Tan with black printed postcard lines and text. Includes writing in pencil and several black hand stamps.

Back: Black printed postcard lines and text with writing in pencil. Includes a purple hand stamp.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Stationary from the concentration/extermination camp Stara Gradiska to Zagreb. Censored with the stamps removed. Stara Gradiska was a notorious extermination center in Croatia, a sub-camp of Jasenovac, specifically constructed for Serbian, Jewish and Romani women and children. Like Jasenovac, it is run by the Ustasia. Inmates were tortured, strangled, starved, and gassed. On one night in late August 1942 -- over a month after this letter was written -- one guard slit the throats over 1,360 prisoners.
