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"

German card from Marine Gemeinschaftslager / Commercial Labor Camp Wesermund to worker Borsig Lokomotiv Werke in Berlin. From the name I assume these are ethnic-German Czech workers. A bit worn, great commercial usage, as per scans. The Marine-Geminschaftslager red handstamp is very scarce.

German WWII-occupied Bohemia Moravia postal card to inmate in Prag XI, Schweringasse (Czech: Schwerinova) 1201. This address is a Gestapo office used to address mail for inmates in the Hagibor forced labor camp portion of the Jewish Ghetto in Prague, established for mixed-race 'Arian' and Jewish couples - though most eventually were moved to other camps. Torn in half and repaired with tape. Very rare, with the Juedische Sammelstelle / Jewish Collection Point handstamp from Schwerinstrasse.

German WWII-occupied Bohemia Moravia postal card from inmate Nelli Mueller in Prag XI, Schweringasse (Czech: Schwerinova) 1201, Block 1. This address is a Gestapo office used to address mail for inmates in the Hagibor forced labor camp portion of the Jewish Ghetto in Prague. Nelli was Jewish who married Czech ethnic German man Bohomil Mueller. For this "crime" Nelli was interned in Hagibor before ultimately being deported to Theresienstadt Concentration Camp, while Bohomil was sentenced to a series of hard labor camps, ultimately ending in Osterode, Harz at an Org Todt subcamp of KL Mittelbau-Dora, working on the mines for the V1/V2 production. Censor-handstamped "Antwort nur mit Postkaren in deutsche Sprache" / "Answer only on a postcard in German language." It's actually amazing Nelli lasted this late in the war in Prague; February 1945 sees here in the concentration camp. The card was sent to her mother-in-law Lida in Zebrak. Hagibor (I've read) is a Hebrew word for 'Strength', and ...

German WWII-occupied Bohemia Moravia card to inmate Nelli Mueller in Konzentrationslager (LK/KZ) / Concentration camp Theresienstadt. Nelli was a Jewish woman who married Czech ethnic German man Bohomil Mueller. For this "crime" Nelli was interned in Hagibor before ultimately being deported to Theresienstadt, while Bohomil was sentenced to a series of hard camps, finally ending up in a KL Dora OT sub-camp constructing mines for V1/V2 weapons production in Osterode, Harz. Censor-handstamped "Aeltestenrat der Juden in Prag" / "Jewish Council of Elders in Prague." This is from Nellis father-in-law Frantik (Frans). Sent very late in the war, in March of 1945. It says 'no news from Osterode' (i.e. husband/son Bohomil), and 'we are awaiting a stamp'. This latter refers to a Zulassungsmarke / permit stamp (Michel BuM Z1), which was required to send packages onto Theresienstadt. A bit worn, small tears at margins. A philatelic and historical showpiece for multiple reasons.

A postcard from Czech ethnic German man married to a Jewish woman in Bohemia Moravia. For this "crime" Bohomil Mueller was sentenced to a series of hard labor camps. At this time he is in the Org Todt Lager in Osterode im Harz, a subcamp of KL Mittelbau-Dora. The Osterode-Petershuette camp (aka Dachs IV) worked on excavating the mines for the V-Waffen (V1/V2) production and building barracks for the other workers/administrators. This letter was sent vary late in the war, in March of 1945, to his wife Nelli, who he believed was still at the Hagibor labor camp within the Jewish Ghetto at Prague, though her letters show that she had in fact been transported to the Theresienstadt Concentration Camp. Note the numbered words on the reverse. At this time only 32-word responses were allowed, so each word is enumerated. A rare intercamp mailing.

A jubilant (if that can ever be applied to a concentration camp) newsletter from Dr Baeck, the de-facto leader of the camp, on May 6th, the day the SS Commander Rahm fled. "The International Red Cross has taken over protective custody of Theresienstadt...In Theresienstadt you are safe! The war has finally ended! Those who leave the camp are exposed to all the dangers of the war. Theresienstadt has taken over the handling of the Martyrs in the small fortreess (Kleine Festung)...". This document is discussed and quoted in its entirety in "Theresienstadt: das Antlitz einer Zwangsgemeinschaft" by HG Adler. There also appears to be a copy in the Central European University in Hungary. An important piece of ephemera from the Holocaust.

A resettlement document from the Israelitische Kultusgemeinde / Jewish Cultural center in in Kladno, WWII occupied Bohemia Moravia / Czechoslovakia. The family of Dr Erwin "Israel" Frankl, along with a woman Martha "Sarah" Heksch are being evicted from their home in Kladno and being relocated to Lubno. it is interesting that this resettlement order is from the Jewish committee and not the SS; perhaps to add insult to injury, by making the Jewish elders do the dirty work? The family has already had their names changed to include the obligatory "Israel" and "Sarah". Folded, with file holes at left.

A collection of 14 covers from a man - Bohomil Mueller - his parents, and his wife Nelli. He was of Aryan descent, she of Jewish. This philatelic story starts with both interned in the Prague Hagibor Work Camp / Ghetto for 'Versippten' (inter-related) and 'Mischlinge' (mixed-race). The first cover is from Nelli in Prag XI, Schweringasse (also called Schwerinova) 1201 (the address for Hagibor), to her mother-in-law Lida. The next cover is interesting in that it is addressed from and to Prague. He has been separated from her, and is being shipped out to a forced labor camp the next day. He tells her "I'm fine. Everything is in order. Tomorrow I will find out my new address and will let you know." The next letter is in Czech, to his father, and while I can't read Czech I assume the contents are similar, since he has now arrived in his first location, The Org Todt concentration camp "Klein Stein", which is for the punishment of Jewish "Mischlinge". The next cover is from the same location,...
