Distler received mail from both June Engel and Dr. Alexander Bramson who were married after the war in 1946. Bramson was the Polish representative to the United Nations “Committee 17,” which established a legal definition of genocide.
This particular letter, from June Engel, written in German, was sent to Netherne Hospital in Surrey, England, a psychiatric facility where Distler was a patient for a time after the war.
