Card to prisoner at Konzentrationslager (KZ/KL) / Concentration Camp Theresienstadt with printed notation "Weiterleitung nur durch Aeltestenrat der Juden" / Forwarding through the Jewish Council of Elders in Prague. Sent very late in the war, Feb 1945, and there is another story going on here because the reverse of the card is addressed to "My dearest Child" (and the names match) -- but if the child is in the Jewish camp and the parent isn't, was the woman married to Jewish man? This seems to be the only reason she wouldn't be in the camp as well has her daughter. Yet Kitty's address doesn't correspond to the Hagibor camp in Prague which held mixed race couples. A mystery to be solved.
