Page on of a three page letter.
I need a full translation of this three page letter from German to English. This is Roza Wohlman / Vollman's letter to her cousin, explaining how she hid from the Nazis and survived the war. It belongs to a Genner (daughter of the letter's recipient) who saw my earlier posting on Roza Vollman, a niece of Abram and Sophie Spiwak's, who lived in Capresti, Romania in 1929. The family never heard from this Roza again. In order to figure out if there is any connection between these two women or their families, we need a translation of the letter.
