Description

Blueish envelope with handwritten address to Miss Edith Bell with return address to Sara Bell on back flap.

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" envelope sent from Vienna to Kew Gardens, Long Island, New York.
