Description

Tan postcard with green postcard lines with handwritten address in green ink. Includes a handwritten message with a hand stamp for Dr. Alfred Israel Jacobsohn.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: A law enacted August 17, 1938 required Jews with non-Jewish forenames to assume the name "Sara" if a woman and "Israel" if a man. This law became effective January 1, 1939. These names were to be used on all correspondence -- private or official -- including return addresses on mail. This postcard was posted at Koln (Cologne) to the currency exchange at Berlin. The postcard has numbered on the receipt. Dr. Alfred "Israel" Jacobsohn was asking for a leaflet regarding the new Reichsmark (RM) credit, refundable in British pounds for emigrating Jews.
