Rosh Chodesh Elul?

Fascinating, but what’s the chiddush that the Frierdiker Rebbe was still in Otwock on Rosh Chodesh Elul? That was two and a half weeks before the war broke out with the German invasion of Poland.

What does the writing say and how would something like that end up in the U.K and moreover in Sheimos?

Here is the writing:

אל הנערים והנערות פליטי אשכנז
עוברי אורח במרכז “צענטאס” באטוואצק .

Return it to the Rebbe's library

That is where the frierdike rebbe seforim belong.

The Rebbe said that the souls of the owners of the books are invested in their books. A man whose children had become not religious, told that he had books from the previous Rebe that he had received from him as a gift , and was thinking of leaving them for his children, the Rebbe asked him what his children will do with them? And suggested he return them to the Rebbe

Not all chabad items that were in the Moreshet auction are stolen goods from that family. This Siddur isn’t from them.
