The lines at bottom contain 2 or 3 Polish words, and some French words. It is very difficult to read.

Something seems to be written in the upper part. Could be Polish, but I cannot read.

Here is what I can decipher.

- The printed matter:
Bonne Fête means Happy Name Day

- At bottom
So moj adres - I do not know Polish and I suppose it means Here is my address

pour Sura - For Sura

Monsieur JC Faj...[ous, ans, ???). Paris
Rue de la [I guess] Roquette, 57

This is the best I am able to do.
3/22/2013 3:46 PM Polish phrase: "To mój adres" - this is my address.

I would also think it says "pour Ania", not Sura.

The surname given with the address is "Fajans", an important Warsaw Jewish family. The first letter of the given name looks like "H." to me.

So, to sum up, it seems that the card was written by a Polish-speaking girl called Ania, who lived in Paris at Rue de la Roquette 57 in a flat owned by a H. Fajans.

Best regards,
Witold Wrzosinski
