Otto Hojtas sent this receipt form from Prague, Czechoslovakia to his cousin?s wife, Gertrude Hojtas, through the Judenrat in the Terezin ghetto. The receipt, dated March 27, 1945 and signed ?O Hojtas,? explains that he sent a package to Gertrude in Terezin and requests acknowledgment upon receipt.

Gertrude Hojtas was married to Emil Hojtas, Otto?s cousin. Gertrude and Emil had two children Gita (b. 1932) and Zuzana (b. 1935). They lived in Prague, Czechoslovakia. Emil emigrated before Germany invaded in 1939, but he was unable to take the rest of the family with him

Gertrude, Gita, and Zuzana were deported to Terezin in 1942. Despite the harsh conditions there, they survived and were reunited with Emil in Czechoslovakia. The family immigrated to the US in 1948.
