Description

Front: 'Trapa' repeated along edge to create a border; drawing of Star of David in upper left corner. Back: Handwritten text, Large black ink blot on top.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:

Postcard from Julius Janovitz to Bella Janovitz, whom he refers to as a civilian intern of war, and as a former passenger on the ill-fated Pentcho, is now in the “concentration camp” on the island of Rhodes. Interesting is the drawing of the Star of David recto. Julius, who was perhaps Bellas’s father, perished in the war. Bella was ultimately to be relocated to the Italian internment camp of Ferramonti di Tarsia and survived the war.
