Terezín, neděle

Drahá Miluško,

Jsem rád, že jsem se dostal dnes s pracovní skupinou na nádraží a potvrzuji Ti balíček s chlebem, který jsem včera správně obdržel. Děkuji Ti srdečně, ale nebylo to nutné, neb já s chlebem úplně vystačím. Doufám, že můj včerejší dopis již máš, na vánočku se těším. Jiného nic neposílej, neb všechno vykradou. Až bude někdy v neděli hezky, tak se sem podíváš, viď?

Všechny Vás srdečně zdravím, Tvůj Ruda

Translation

Theresienstadt, Sunday

Dear Miluška,

I am glad that I made it to the train station today with the workers’ group so I can write to you and confirm that I received the bread you sent me yesterday. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, but it wasn’t necessary, I’m fine with the bread I receive. I hope that you’ve already received the letter I sent yesterday. I’m looking forward to the Christmas bread. Don’t send anything else, they’ll only steal it. When it’s nice sometime on Sunday, you’ll come by and see us, right?

Greetings to you all, Your Ruda
