Bernard Fenster’s Fremdenpass was issued in Vienna in July 1939, with an expiration date one year later, showing his stateless nationality and profession. Various handstamps including one Swedish adhesive revenue, and an Immigration visa signed by William P. Snow, American Vice- Consul in Stockholm, Sweden.
