Description

Envelope with six purple postage stamps along top and two purple stamps along right side, “VIA TRANSATLANTIC-CLIPPER” printed and underlined in blue and red, large “B” written in red on left side.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:Dr. Albert Stuehler and his wife, Else, resided at Zuider Amstellaan 254 II in Amsterdam during the German occupation. Like the Frank family, the Stuehlers had lived in Frankfort, Germany prior to the war. Albert perished in Auschwitz in November 1943, Else at Dachau in October 1943. This cover contained a letter from his brother Paul in San Francisco, no doubt concerned about the recent Nazi occupation of the Netherlands.
