Description

Yellowed paper form with typewritten black text, blanks filled in with handwriting . A signature in blue ink at bottom right.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Notice sent to Frau Hedwig Krzenski-Kriscski informing her that her husband Viktor had died a few days earlier of lung disease and had just been cremated in the early 1940's. "Lung disease" is doubtless a euphemism—Lager- speak—for being worked to death under inhumane, insufferable conditions. Most of what Nazi's regarded as Polish intelligentsia were sent to Mauthausen where the great majority perished. For .72RM she could be in receipt of the death certificate.
