This postcard was sent to my husband to Borsa by his little brother in 1944. The sender is Mihaly Grunstein, Siklos, Baranya county, he was doing the army there. On the postcard it is written ‘Checked’.

My husband had two brothers, the oldest, Marton was born in 1909, Joska, my husband in 1913, Mihaly, his little brother in the 1920s.

Mihaly died during deportation somewhere in Germany. My husband tried to arrange that Mihaly would get enlisted in 1943, though he wasn't of the proper age yet. Nevertheless later he was taken to Auschwitz, and he died somewhere in Germany.
