This envelope was addressed to Mrs. L. Wolff and taped to the exterior was a Dutch Jewish star. The note was sent to Elisabeth while Roderich was a forced laborer at Camp Gijsselte. He arrived at this camp on January 15, 1942, and was released on May 19, 1942. [A partial English translation of the hard-to-decipher German original is provided.]
