Just came across this passport, it's a Nazi Germany passport that was issued to Carola Sara Meyersohn on 19 July 1939. The first page was stamped with a big 'J' to indicate that the owner was Jewish. Nazi racial laws made it mandatory that every Jewish female had to take on the middle name Sara and every Jewish male the middle name Israel. Not every country allowed Jews to enter at that time and because of the "Judenstempel" a lot of Jews were probably rejected.

This woman would have been one of the luckier ones. A very important document!

Such passports are a clear evidence of the Holocaust. She was lucky to had a passport as for German Jews it was almost impossible to leave Germany after WWII begun. Visit my website on passport collecting and passport history to find out more...
