Letter #


Roza Grünbaum




Roze notes her "fatigue and anxiety" as a result of her current situation, thereby offering an impression of the toll the harshening conditions are taking on Sala's community at home. She writes, "It's been such a long time and we've been suffering so much, it's enough already."

Full Translation

Dear cousin Sala, Please accept my apologies for not writing to you in such a long time. I didn't have the patience to sit down and write much to my dear brother. ... You know, dear Sala, that life isn't always how we want it to be and that's why we always have a reason to complain. I'm surprised that you didn't add some lines, which always make us feel so good. It's been a very long time, dear Sala, that you didn't write us. What are you doing? Are you... that's not possible. You should come on vacation. God will help that we may see each other soon. It's been such a long time and we've been suffering so much, it's enough already. But don't worry, dear cousin, it will be fine alright. After the rain, the sun will shine again, we'll be happy together one of these days. Dear Sala, how is our dear child doing? We heard that he was sick. We're very worried. Dear Sala, please write us what happened to him, because if you don't know [what's happening] it's much worse and you know how one worries. Write something about yourself also and our child shouldn't worry about us. I send you my warm regards and kisses. Be well and don't worry. My mother sends warm regards and says you should come to us again to get some fresh air. Father and my little brother send their regards and kisses. My cousin Sala sends her regards and also Wolf Blumenfeld. Your cousin Rozia.
