10 pages, including the last words written by a Jew sentenced to death by hanging, before his execution during the Holocaust. The instructive and hard things to read he wrote to his son on the back of printed pages that turn to a "Hebrew youth" and inform the public about the crimes of the Nazi beast in Germany. From the things it seems that the writer was a doctor in his profession as he writes: "I whose life certificate was to cure the sick" but we could not find out the identity of the writer, nor whether he was eventually executed as appears from the letters written in his last days. Creepy and hard-to-read documentation. The letter opens with the words: "My dear son! This letter is the last word of your father to you, the word of an innocent man who wants life, but the cruel life vomits him out of their midst and destroys him ..." . The person describes how he was accused of no wrong in his palm for murdering any person, and in this charge he was sentenced to death: "I that even a fly did not dare to kill in my lifetime uploaded to a gallows in a despicable plot that I murdered a soul", and describes the moments in court in which his sentence was pronounced dead: "I kept myself quiet while reading the long verdict ... but I opened my eyes and listened to the judge ..." Killer! I cried out with the rest of my strength towards the monster in front of me, but I fell to the ground, I felt dizzy ... ". and goes on to describe how afterwards :" I did not shout or cry, but I felt like the ground was falling under my feet ... I saw and heard nothing ... " Later the writer describes his hard feelings in the prison cell :" When my consciousness returned to me I found myself in a new cell, a cell sentenced to die ... I remembered yesterday in court ... and burst into tears as a small child ... what My power against the sealed iron door and against the iron hearts behind it like crazy I ran from wall to wall "I'm not guilty!" "I'm not guilty!" And he continues to address his son: "Remember, remember that your father was innocent and maliciously executed." The writer ends his letter with the words: "I finish writing my letters, the warm rays of the sun penetrate through the thick layer of iron and illuminate the dark cells, this is the last time I have daylight before I went to the gallows, goodbye my son forever ... your father who is in prison." and adds a few lines in which he addresses briefly to his daughter "My dearest daughter of all! When I come to you this letter I will no longer be in the land of the living" The continuation of the letter addressing his daughter is apparently missing. [10] pages. Pages 13x10 cm. Deletions and corrections in the writing sequence. Very good condition.
