Vienna 14 July 1939                    ב"ה     

My dearest עמ"ש!  

I thank you my dear child for your dear letter. One is now unable to receive a referral to a doctor from the religious community office unless one is already under their care. The few marks now mean a lot to us since we do not have them.  Therefore I ask you to go to Bloomsbury House. Our document number is IM/F.C.1.; it is called the German Jewish Aid Committee Immigration Department. You will certainly be able to obtain our health reports there. Apart from that, I sent a letter there last week describing our desperate situation and asked for help. Do inquire there, as perhaps they can help without guarantors.

I will only be able to send you pictures on Sunday; Papa נ"י will have himself photographed today. If you cannot get the documents from there, please write and we will have to send them.  I believe one can apply in the meantime without the documents and submit them later on. Because one day makes a big difference. It was not my fault that the certificate was recalled. But I would be happy not to be in the same place as Chane Hind. Because of her I am now unable to get to Grosspapa. She is tearing me apart. It is quite simply uncomfortable for her that we even exist. השי"ת should liberate me from her.

I kiss you my sweet,   

Your Mama

We receive post from Esti ת' every שבת .  In case you apply please send us confirmation.


I also send you my best wishes my dear child,  

Your Father


       Several refugee relief organisations were located there.

       Hashem Yisborach – G-d, may He be blessed.
