Abstract

This Record Group contains documentation with regard to various kinds of persona documents, work-related papers, applications and related-correspondence. The German occupation authorities, Local administrative authorities and Jewish councils (Judenrate), largely were the agencies issuing these documents

Scope and Contents of the Materials

This record group is comprised of the following materials: German-Jewish prewar identification papers, stamped with "J' and marked with the Nazi-established indicator of Jewishness, the middle name Israel or Sara; and work permits and identification papers issued in the German-occupied territories. Also included are documents which stand out because they were forged to serve as "Aryan" (non-Jewish) identification papers, enabling the Jews to assume false identities. These identification papers, issued for an assumption of a false identity, include work permits, birth certificates, and personal identification documents. Additionally, there are two related collections, which include organizational correspondence and Jewish badges.

Materials are digitized.

Collection Historical Note

The Collection of Wartime Identification Documents has varied passports and personal identification documents. It is interesting to note that German and Austrian Jewish passports and personal identification documents differ from German-occupied countries and territories identification documents. For example, if German and Austrian--though only German, after Anschluss--passports, or travel passports, give the bearer the opportunity for immigration, then only various identification documents issued in the occupied territories, such as the Kennkarte, Legitimation-Karten, Arbeitskarten, Meldausweises, could postpone deportations.

The Red Cross Collection of Communications contains exchange officially permitted by German or other occupation authorities. These exchanges contain messages, measuring 25-words, between German-controlled territory and unoccupied countries, including the countries of the anti-Hitler Coalition.

In the Collection of Jewish Badges and Yellow Stars are Jewish badges, imposed upon the Jews by German-occupation authorities, and include French, Dutch, and Belgium Jewish yellow stars.
