Lot of five postal receipts (Einlieferungsschein) for money transfers to prisoners at the concentration camp Dachau that show funds sent to Ladislaus Drapa, born on February 20, 1912, prisoner number 3537. Four receipts have cancelation stamps dated between 1940 and 1941. One receipt lacks a stamp. WITH: Three canceled stamps cut from envelopes sent from the Litzmannstadt Ghetto. This ghetto was established by the German authorities for Polish Jews and Roma following the Invasion of Poland. The cancelation stamps are dated March 11, 1944, March 29, 1944, and April 29, 1944. Two items bear the official stamp of the Central Jewish Historical Commission (Centralna Zydowska Komisja Historyczna), one of the branches of the Central Committee of Polish Jews that functioned between 1944-1950 and focused on documenting the Holocaust.
