Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:
In September 1938, a Nuremberg law was issued that banned Jewish attorneys from practicing law. Only a few Jewish attorneys were allowed to continue practicing law under the professional title of "Konsulent" or Legal Consultant, but only with Jewish clients. This cover is an example of the Nuremberg Laws applied to Jewish attorneys. The cover was mailed from Koblenz 24-9-42 to the sender's brother in Switzerland. The ink stamp in the lower right quarter reads in part: "Dr. Isidor Joseph Treidel, Konsulent, Licensed only for legal advice and representation of Jews."
