Scrip received by Ernestine Schiller when she was imprisoned in the Theresienstadt concentration camp from 1942-1945. Ernestine was a 75 year old Jewish resident of Vienna, Austria, who was deported to Theresienstadt on October 10, 1942. She was a prisoner in the camp until it was liberated in May 1945. The next year, she left Austria to join her daughter, Berta Herzka, and her family in Santiago, Chile, where they had fled from Vienna in 1940.
