Postcard opens 'Dear Meir,' (Meir Knorozowski), who changed his name to Martin Cohen when he arrived in US. See my previous viewmate entry, which shows an image of the other side of this postcard, written in Russian and sent from Russian-controlled area, possibly near Bialystok.

Thank you for your help.

I received your postcard and I am answering immediately. I am very glad that you are, thank God, in good health. Now, about us. We went through a lot; provided we survived and are in good health and fed (?); you can imagine by yourself. Your parents are, thank God, in good health. Yossl is together with them, they have a ...(?) and it provides a living.
Now, Meir, I would like to ask you to meet up with my uncle Hershel and tell him that, if he thinks about sending us some money, that he shouldn't send us because I don't need it. But, if possible, tell him to send us a parcel because we need it very much. I am finishing up because I don't have the time today to write you long letters. Be well. Your unforgotten Hana. Hearty regards from everybody. I send regards to everybody."

Hope this has helped you.
