Unfortunately my sister Elly died 10 days ago after being very sick for 7 months and in very great pain.

Cover to former inmate in Konzentrationslager (KZ/KL) / Concentration Camp Theresienstadt. Even after the end of the war, many of the inmates remained in the camp to receive care from the Allies. They were either two weak to move or as yet had nowhere else to go, no food, no money, etc. This was sent shortly after the Liberation in May 1945. Sent without postage and without postage due markings. I think the reverse writing means "contents in Czech"
