Tan postcard with printed purple postcard lines with handwritten address to Kurt Schaffer from Israel Biedrmann with handwritten message including one censored portion.
Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:
Postcard returned not posted due to inadmissible contents. Litzmannstadt Ghetto prisoner Mr. Biedermann’s postcard was ineligible to be posted due to German censor discovering content that would be too provocative to mail. Hence the stamped censor mark “INHALT UNZULASSIG”. These decisions were quite arbitrary and ensured that prisoners were cut off from the outside world.
