Description

Grey envelope with handwritten address to Albert Levy. Back flap includes handwritten return address from Geida Sara Ropmann and brown censor tape.

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 was a registered "Sara" envelope sent from Bad Triburg to Hoboken, New Jersey.
