Translation

NoteLetter written by Erno Rosenzweig to his relative Béla, describing the deteriorating rights of Hungarian Jews and asking for help to escape the country.

Béla likely refers to either William Tann (ne Tennenbaum) or his son Albert Tanner who both resided in Detroit, Michigan and assisted relatives emigrating from Czechoslovakia and Hungary.
