This card was sent by Private Jacob Isak Sicherman to his wife (Matyl) and their two children (Rosia and Balcia) c/o her father, Markus S. Schiff. His job in the army was escorting deserters back to their bases, and this is presumably why he was in Prague (shown in the picture) and nearby Theresienstadt. I would be grateful for (a) a transcripton of his message and (b) a translation of the message. This card is one of 104 related cards in a book that I am preparing for publication.

8/19/2016 10:17 AM the place is unclear instead of "Sragzsk" fahrt von Prag could also mean something different. Perhaos also containing the austrian city "Graz".

Something like "Grazzukfahrt v. Prag". But I do not know.
