Description

Front: Black and white photograph of the Albert Ballin ship with a man at center right.

Back: Handwritten markings in purple and grey pencil with a green Beethoven stamp in the upper right.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: The Albert Ballin was a ship named after the Jew who had been on the personal staff of Kaiser Wilhelm and became instrumental in the rise of the shipping company of the Hamburg-Amerika Line. After the Nuremburg Laws of 1935 the ship was renamed Hansa. Thus it was not just people who had to undergo a name change consequent to the odious Nuremburg Laws.
