A letter written by Klari Perl Barber, a prisoner in the Kistarcsa transit camp, to her sister, Piroska, in Budapest. In the letter Klari asks her sister to take good care of her son, Karoly, and to have him write to her.

[Translation from Hungarian]: "Little Piri [Piroska], take good care of Karcsi [Karoly]. My heart is aching for him. Kisses to all, and take good care of yourselves. Write if it's at all possible. I believe it's permitted to write at the end of every month. Many kisses, Klari. My little Karcsi, write!"
