Beautiful little girl, Now it’s “December ‘41” again. A year ago, we were together. Do you remember the plans we made? I thought you would be released from your service, but since I had my doubts, I started my own initiatives on your behalf. I’ll have no problems with you! Let me know if you have “seamstress” under the rubric “occupation” [in your papers.] I won’t wait until Bernhard will be released, but will try for both of you. You have no idea how angry I am that you have to suffer so much through no fault of your own. You signed up voluntarily in your sister’s stead, then later I ignored you a little bit…but enough of past sorrow and vexation! Sarenka, just don’t lose hope and don’t even cry because of the delay. I’m always thinking of you. I miss you in more ways than you can imagine. Sarenka! Are you healthy? Write me something! What can I send to you? Pa! I kiss you on your mouth. Yours, Alinka
