Description

Front: Split in half by orange line. Right side has orange dotted lines with the addressee written on them. The upper righthand corner seems to have had the stamp ripped off. There is "-26-" in its place, as well as the bottom outline of a circle stamp. Address is written in black pen. The left side of the postcard has a block of German text in orange print, titled: "Konzentrationslager Weirmar=Buchenwald" with the name of the inmate written along with his room and block in the bottom in black ink. Back: Message is written on dotted orange lines in black ink.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Sent by inmate Joseph Kachel, inmate #15, block #44. The low inmate number shows that he was more than likely one of the earliest inmates at the concentration camp.
