Front: Some handwriting in lines of postcard, ‘KASSA’ circular handstamp at top right; handwritten message fills the page.
Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: By the time this postcard was written, Kosice (Kassa) had been annexed to Hungary. Persecution of Jews commenced in earnest, and Jews lost their property and possessions, and ultimately their civeil rights. When the Germans invaded Hungary in March, 1944, Jews were massed in brickwork factories and in a ghetto. By May the deportations began with almost 16,000 Jews deported to concentration camps. By October the Arrow Cross established a reign of terror in Hungary.
