Food card for prisoners - physical workers in the Theresienstadt "ghetto". Card number 262045 of Elizarov Kahn.

In 1941, a transit camp and ghetto - Theresienstadt - was established in the town of Terezin in the Czech Republic occupied by the Germans. Theresienstadt was presented as a model Jewish settlement for Nazi propaganda purposes. Despite the overcrowding, hunger and forced labor, the Jews in Theresienstadt held extensive educational and cultural activities. Of approximately 140,000 Jews imprisoned in Theresienstadt, approximately 35,000 perished in the ghetto itself and approximately 88,000 were deported to the death camps.

11.5x10 cm. Some of the numbers have been used. Good condition.
