Red handwritten envelope with many stamps and a red “x” crossing over the cover

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Rare registered cover sent from the hospital of the St. Ottilien displaced persons’ camp, in all probability from a concentration camp survivor, to the International Tribunal in Nuremberg. From cancels on the cover, the enclosed letter was sent to Nuremberg on Nov. 21, 1945, and received at the Nuremberg Court or International Tribunal the next day. Letters from concentration camp survivors typically contained personal experiences of Nazi atrocities which were utilized in the prosecution of Nazi officials for war crimes.
