    According to Erwin Markowitz, his mother, father, and sister wrote the postcard and mailed it from Nagyberezna, Hungary, in April 1944. He received it while he was a prisoner in a compulsory labor camp called Ujverbas in Transylvania. According to a translation from the Hungarian provided by Mr. Markowitz, the card reads (on one side), "Last time do I write to you. We travel we don't know where. God wanted that way. We say goodbye to you, lots of kisses Sister Sadie"; on other side, "Many Kisses Your Mother followed by illegible translated word" and "Same greetings kisses your father."
