German-occupied General Government (GGov) Poland card sent by a Jewish man in the Warsaw Ghetto to (Russian) Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine via Dorpat in May of 1941. Handstamped Judenrat Warschau / Jewish Council [of Elders] Warsaw in the upper left by his name. Such a sending was possible only for a short period between the time the Ghetto was established by the Germans at the end of 1940 and Operation Barbarossa, when the Germans invaded Russia on June 22, 1941, just ten days before this was received on June 12th (see the CCCP receiver cancel). Creased in center and edges. With large red Ab censor. A rare, genuinely used piece of Jewish history.
