Description

Tan postcard with black printed postcard lines. Addressed to Meirna Bernsheimer from Clara Sara Westerfield. Handwritten message 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 a "Sara" postcard sent from Bonn to Tours, France.
