Footnotes

1 This document is entirely undated. It was presumably sent by mail in an envelope. Internal evidence suggests that it comes from a time when Jeanette Schenker was in Vienna but moving from addresss to address. It has therefore been placed sequentially in the first months of 1939, but could be from later 1939 or indeed 1940 or 1941 ‒ years from which we know nothing at all of Jeanette's movements before she was taken and deported in 1942.

2 At this time, Manolo Elias was living at Vienna 1, Wallnerstrasse 2.

3 Brinklaw: reading uncertain; the name is unknown among Schenker's papers, nor is there anyone of this or similar name in Lehmann's allgemeiner Wohnungs-Anzeiger 1939.
