A postcard sent by Hugo Klein, a friend of Hugo Elbert, to Melania Elbert.

The message reads: "We are glad to let you know that someone has brought us news regarding an existing concentration camp in Poland where 15,000 Jews from our Slovakia are being imprisoned. Many of them are from your nearby cities and villages. Hopefully we'll get more details about it later. We wish you all the best for the coming Rosh Hashanah holiday, and we hope that G-d will hear our prayers. Yours, Hugo Klein and family."
