An order posted in the French city Champgny Sur Marne, which dictates that all "Israelites" present themselves to the mayor with identification in order to receive a new identity card.
Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:
French Deportation Order. Broadside dated 26 September 1940 for City of Champigny-sur-Marne. The French text orders all "Israelites" (i.e., Jews) to present themselves to the mayor’s office by October 2 (1940) with appropriate identification. This order, five months after the Battle of France, is doubtless a pretext for gathering requisite information for eventual deportation of French and foreign Jews in France.
