1943 two uprated 12pf stationery cards, sent from Krakow to the Swedish Red Cross in Stockholm, fine-v.f. The sender acknowledges the receipt of a "Liebesgabe" relief food packages, and in one asks for a similar package to be sent to her brother, a Polish refugee in Romania (acknowledgement cards addressed to Swedish Red Cross are scarcer than similar cards addressed to Portugal. It is estimated that Portugal accounted for roughly 80% of relief packages. Nevertheless, the Swedish Red Cross coordinated deliveries of 25,000 food and 5,000 clothing parcels between 1943-44. This reference is from "Swedish Humanitarian Aid to Poland" chapter in "Dreamers & Opportunists. Polish - Swedish Relations During The Second World War" by Pawel Jaworski)
