Description

Brown half-sheet filled with printed charts and typewritten and handwritten information titled, "Angaben über die Wohnung."

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:Document attesting to fact that a Jewish family had been cleared from an apartment, it is "entjudet, referring to the fact that an apartment has been cleared of Jews and their belongings. Apartments were confiscated, the Jews deported to camps, and the apartment was given to a German family."

The concept entjudet went through a semantic evolution, the term becoming increasingly more sinister under the Nazi regime. It referred to removal of Jews from professional and economic institutions, removing Jewish influence, taking over Jewish firms and property, and finally deportation and murder. It no longer appears in modern German usage.
