Warnemünde, Germany | 1945?

When: July 25th, 1945?
From: Ostseebad Warnemünde, Germany
To: Prague, Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia
Found: Prague, Czech Republic
Text: I can’t quite read/understand this text, but it is from a grandfather to his family saying that he is doing ok and that he would like them to send him bread.
Note: I do not find the origin of this card particularly interesting, but I do find it interesting to get a window into the life of a displaced Czech national in Germany during the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia (Notice that the country is listed as “Protektorat”). Things like bread from back home must have been a hot commodity at the time. Also, the fact that it has a Hitler stamp is interesting.
I am not a native Czech speaker, so if you have a better translation, please let me know.
