Mr.Heidenstein’s German passport documents the events surrounding the Polenaktion. His passport was issued in Berlin in 1936. He was deported by the police to Poland on October 28, 1938 (p.9). He would be in a refugee “camp” on the Polish and German border in Nowy Tomysi , a town just a few miles from the Grynszpans in Zbaszyn. Poles applied the Ministry of Interior stamp for the special committee for those deported from Germany. (p.7), as well as border stamps indicating his deportation.
