This is a note from a teacher at the Dusseldorf Jewish School in Germany to Shmuel (Samuel) Ehrenhalt wishing him luck in America. The note written in German, dated June 24, 1936, translates as, ?Your class wishes you all the best in the future. Dusseldorf 24 June 1936 Class 3.? The family left Germany for New York six days later.
