The Lustigers, refugees from Nazi- occupied Europe, have been detained at Atlit camp, south of Haifa, Palestine, by British authorities. Atlit was established to prevent Jewish immigrants from entering Palestine in accordance with the 1939 White Paper. Mrs. Lustiger writes that Mr. Lustiger “would like to hear from you. He is doing fine and in good health. Please write through the Red Cross in Geneva. Verso, reply to Mr. Lustiger: “We are healthy and doing fine. Father does not work anymore; he is too old. Letters are received in two months’ time. Nitsch-Zamanek.”
