Summary:

This note is Raizl's first from the labor camp. She is with Sala's friends Blima, Sala Cz, and Frymka Rabinowicz. However, she has not been able to track down her parents at this point. She writes, "We're always holding your picture in our hands and keep talking about you. If you have more than one photo of our parents, please send it to us." Apparently, Raizel's separation from her parents took her by surprise.

Dear Sala I’m sure you’re wondering from where we took this address in Neusalz, but that’s for real. That’s what happened. Blima, Sala Cz., Frymke and I are together. Thank God, we’re not doing badly. Don’t worry about us. But we’re worried about you, our dear, precious, precious parents. We don’t know what happened to them. May God see to it that we will have good news. Laja Dma and Dawid apparently returned home. On the last day, on August 19, we saw Laja D.on the way to the station, that reassured us somewhat. But we didn’t see our parents. May they be well. Sala, Sala you are the best. We’re always holding your picture in our hands and keep talking about you. If you have more than one photo of our parents, please send it to us. Otherwise, there’s nothing special. A thousand kisses from both of us. Rozia. Dear Sala. You’ll probably be surprised to hear that I’m together with your two sisters. Don’t worry about them, they are together with me in the same room and I’ll look after them alright. I’ll advise them, I know all about life in the camps, after all. They have very nice work, very light and clean. With me, everything is as always. Write me. Kisses, Sala Cz. Dear Sala. I also think of you always, don’t worry, they are with me. Kisses, Frymka
