Description

A tan postcard addressed to Fred Hess with red postcard lines and a message handwritten in black ink.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: A law enacted August 17, 1938 required Jews with non-Jewish forenames to assume the name "Sara" if a woman and "Israel" if a man. This law became effective January 1, 1939. These names were to be used on all correspondence -- private or official -- including return addresses on mail. This is an "Israel" postcard from Frankfurt to Tjornarp, Sweden.
