ID card for Hungarian man, Pal Rosenberger, with large red-stamped ‘Zs’ (Zsido) identifying him as a Jew. After Adolf Eichmann’s arrival in Hungary to organize deportation of the Hungarian Jews, the Hungarian authorities, following the German example of 1938 requiring Jewish passports to be stamped with a large red ‘J’, required Jews to be identified with the ‘Z’ prominently stamped on their ID cards.
