    Overview

    Description
    The two postcards were written by inmates at Birkenau concentration camp. One postcard is addressed from Karl Reiner to Frieda Prokesch, and the other is addressed from Pauline Neuschul to Karl Masojodek. The postcards are evidence of the Briefaktion des RSHA (Juden), or "Operation Mail," initiated by the Nazi government in the summer of 1942 to deceive the world about the "Final Solution." Jews were forced to write postcards or letters home falsely stating that they were in good health and doing well.
