Tan postcard with green printed postcard lines. Message written in black ink from Alice Sara Leyser.
Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Alice Sara Leyser in Berlin asks whether 10 RM sent to Frau Hedwig Sara Seleman was received by City Bank of Litzmannstadt. Translation: "To the City Bank,On March 31, 1942, I sent 10 marks for the food distribution for Jews. This money was intended for Frau Hedwig Sara Salomon who lived in Berlin until Octobor at Hoheustaudfeu str. 12. Until today I have had no acknowledgement or notice of her possible death. I would appreciate an answer giving any information you might have on the present status of this lady.Very respecfully,Mrs. Alice Sara Leyser. Account No. 434038." On reverse side of card, there is a typewritten reply dated 7-18-1942 but only a few words are legibile due to having partly cornered with a postage stamp and ghetto administration startup. A changed address is given as number 26 but the street is not legible.
