A letter written on a Hungarian Red Cross correspondence form by Czeslava (Harmelin) Sauber to her sister Marie (Harmelin) Auerbach, an internee on the Isle of Man in England.

The letter inquires about Marie's son. Marie Auerbach had fled from her home in Vienna to Belgium with her husband, Salo and son, Joseph. While Marie and Joseph were later able to escape to England, Salo was deported from Belgium to a German concentration camp, where he perished. Czeslava Sauber, who lived in Backa Palanka, Serbia, was later deported to Auschwitz with her husband, Jacob, and son.
