The controversial Mr. Wiesenthal, signing the postcard as “Engineer”, is apparently at the time of writing, convalescing in the women’s hospital at Mauthausen, having arrived at Mauthausen in February 1945, after moving through a number of other campus (Gross-Rosen, Chemnitz, Buchenwald) as the war was ending. He survived at Mauthausen on starvation rations until the camp was liberated by Americans on May 5. He describes some of his experiences to Mr. Grossman.
