Typed letter, letterhead in upper left corner, signed in lower right corner. Letterhead of the Russian Red Cross, typed, sent by G.L.Rabinovitch (Representative of the Russian Red Cross Society) to Dr. G. M. Rosenblatt, 257 Brunswick Av, Toronto, On, Canada. Letter states that he has received her letter, to enter the USSR she has to apply to the Russian Consular General in New York, she should give details about her relatives in Moscow, she would find a job as a doctor as there is a demand, her daughter can study what she likes, her husband will find a job according to his education, there is no unemployment in the USSR. Narrative: Ginda Kalujna Rosenblatt was born in 1891. She was a graduate of the Women’s Medical Institute of Saint Vladimir University, Kiev. After receiving her degree, Dr. Rosenblatt was conscripted by and served in the Russian Army from 1917-1918, at first as an intern and then as a captain. She was assigned to the 266th Regiment, working at the military hospital in Ostrog, Ukraine, and was later assigned a post closer to the front. The regiment was constricted by economic difficulties, transportation difficulties, and growing unrest among the troops with regard to the Russian military authority. In late 1917 the 266th regiment decided, independently of the central government, to end their part in the war by demobilizing the troops. Dr. Rosenblatt agreed to this scheme and, along with Dr. Henryk Zamenhof, was responsible for the diagnoses of “heart ailments” among the majority of the members (probably in good health) of the regiment. She herself was diagnosed with a heart ailment and received an honorable discharge in 1918. Dr. Rosenblatt was reunited with her husband, Abraham Rosenblatt, in Kiev shortly afterward. After the war, she practiced medicine in Briceni and then Lipcani, both in Bessarabia, Romania (now Moldova). Dr. Rosenblatt and her family immigrated to Toronto in May, 1934. Although she fulfilled the requirements for an M.D. degree at the University of Toronto, she chose to devote the rest of her career to social work. Dr. Rosenblatt died in 1986.

Notes
Single sided letter, creased, tears repaired with tape. This was the third illegal letter Charles Kotkowsky received from the Bund Coordinating Committee in Warsaw, while being incarcerated in a forced labour camp in Piotrkow, Poland. The signature, Henryk Wiktorksy, was a pseudonym used by the donor's teacher, Ignac Samsonowicz. It was created using the names of the two pre-war leaders of the Bund labor organization of Poland, Henryk Erlich and Wiktor Alter. Narrative: Charles Kotkowsky was born in Piotrkow, Poland, in 1920. He was the son of a butcher, and had three siblings. He tried to immigrate to the USA as the Nazi persecution of Jews began, but he was unable to get the necessary documents in time. Meanwhile, he worked as a tailor in Lodz. The Germans entered Lodz on 1939/9/5 and had set up a ghetto by October. Charles worked in a glass factory, but eventually enlisted to avoid being used for forced labour. The Germans began rounding up Jews around Jewish holidays for labour or small transports for Auschwitz and Treblinka. At this time, he began receiving packages of letters and money from Ignac Samsonowicz, his old Yiddish teacher. The glass factory became a labour camp where Charles and his brother worked until they were sent to Czestochowa labour camp in November 1944. They made bullets in the factory there. The women in the glass factory were sent to Ravensbrück. Later Charles was sent to Buchenwald, where he and his friends were assigned easy jobs because their supervisor was a resistance sympathizer. Charles met Leon Blum before he was moved to Flossenberg. On their last transport train Charles and his brother jumped from the train along with many other Jews (some of which were shot in the attempt) and were sheltered in a Czechoslovakian town until the American army arrived. He moved to Italy where he worked as a translator, mostly in doctor's offices. He moved to Canada in 1951.He married Sally Blum, and they had two children, Pearl Levine and Rickie Cohen. Charles died from cancer on 2003/2/8 in Toronto, Canada.
