Like many others, the Wernick family tried to send the younger generation to Palestine. German postcard dated 1.5.39, handwritten in German, addressed from one sister to another in Tel Aviv; "... at this time we cannot come (to Palestine). We have no certificate, do not know when it will arrive, hoping it will not take a long time. Our Ethel will soon be in Tel Aviv, she is on her way. We have sent her your address and she will be visiting you... Your sister and brother-in law."
