Concentration Camp Buchenwald

A January 20, 1945, letter written in Serbo-Croatian from Buchenwald prisoner Stjepan Salaj's wife on their farm in Yugoslavia. En route to Germany, the letter was opened for censorship at Vienna.

Below: A February 29, 1945, 30-reichsmark international money order from Drachten, Netherlands, to prisoner G.J. Blauw at Buchenwald, which arrived at Weimar on March 28, 1945, but probably did not reach the camp; by then mass confusion reigned as Allied armed forces approached.
