    Default New and very interesting Swiss/Nazi censored post card

    Hey it is rare that I come across something completely different.I have acquired a post card sent from Switzerland to Germany with a censor stamp. I think the subject matter of the card is really cool anyway I thought you all would like to see something that is somewhat rare. Also a new HJ card that I like as well.Click image for larger version.

    The card is addressed to a Mr. Loehrer of the Wesselsche Kunsthandlung [= Wessel's Art Dealership] at Rostock in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

    It says:


    "Lieber Täff*), kommst Du wohl
    in absehbarer Zeit schwerlich in
    die alte Heimat? Bist Du mit den
    Deinen hoffe ich gesund? Im
    Gedenken an schönere Zeiten
    grüssen Dich herzlichst die
    alten Freunde an der Oberirler
    [?]str. [= -strasse]
    und hoffen trotz allem auf
    Frieden und Wiedersehen!
    Alles Liebe v.
    [= von] Luis u. [= und]
    Fanny."


    ...meaning...:


    "Dear Täff, you will hardly
    be able to come to your old homeland
    in the foreseeable future, right? Hopefully, you and
    your family are in good health?
    In the memory of better times,
    the old friends from the Oberirler
    [?] Street
    greet you whole-heartedly
    and, despite everything, hope for
    peace and us meeting again!
    Much love from Luis and
    Fanny.
    "


    *) Apparently, some nickname or perhaps a regional short/colloquial form of a first name.
