This letter of directive served as verification when I came back from the camp. We took a Red Cross bus home. The International Red Cross took us from Ravensbruck to Prague. We stopped in Prague to get this verification and then a bus took us from there, but only to Komarom, I don?t even know why. From there we came across the bridge on foot into Hungary, and from there by train to Pest, and straight away to the DEGOB [National Commitee for the Care of the Deported], and they interviewed us there. The DEGOB seal is on the paper there. This always served me as verification of my deportation.
