WWI era Jamaica Patriotic Stamp League commercial cover, helped fund Polish Jews
26870632
Jamaica Patriotic Stamp League commercial cover franked by George V 1½d "War Stamp" + Stamp League Red Cross label (½d) - 3rd version, and tied by SP 17 1917 ANNOTTO BAY postmark. The league was founded in 1915 by Lewis Ashenheim to raise funds for the British Red Cross Society, establish a Jamaican airplane fund, and to provide relief for Polish Jews. These labels were sold at all post offices for ½d (halfpenny) each and had no postal validity if used alone by the general public, but if inscribed "Red Cross Business" or "Jamaica Patriotic Stamp League" and endorsed with Mr. Ashenheim's signature they were accepted in place of postage stamps.

Mauthausen concentration camp: 01-10-1940 dated deposit slip ('Einlieferungsschein') for 10 Reichsmark money order sent to a prisoner with a Polish name at "KZ Mauthausen Oberdonau" from ZAWIERCIE (OBERSCHLESIEN) / Upper Silesia. The postal stationary form requests on reverse "Please do not use [this space] for messages for the recipient". Around this time many Poles were transferred to this camp complex, and these consisted of artists, scientists, Boy Scouts, teachers and university professors arrested during Intelligenzaktion and the AB Action (the 2nd stage of an extermination operation to eliminate intellectuals and the upper classes of Polish society across the territories slated for eventual annexation to Germany). The posting locale was a large Jewish population center.

7/1944 Holocaust era Belgian AJB Judenrat mail BRUSSELS to Zionist Office GENEVA
31470638
Unusual Holocaust-era Jewish foreign mail: 24 VII 1944 registered cover from sender ("H. L. Rokach") at "AJB" ('Association des Juifs en Belgique' / Association of Jews in Belgium) in German-occupied BRUSSELS to Zionist "Office Palestinien de Suisse" GENEVA, franked 4F & tied by 2 strikes of local postmark; opened & sealed by German military censor - per cachet's index letter "D", in MUNICH, which handled mail destined to Switzerland; backstamped 17 VIII 44 GENEVE arrival; opened gently at right. Highly unusual foreign correspondence: the AJB was a 'Judenrat'-like organization, established 2 Dec. 1941 by the Germans, to adminster the Belgian Jewish population & all Jews were required to join; the AJB adminstered registers of members which in turn were used by the Germans to deport Jews. The AJB was closely supervised by the SiPo-SD (Sicherheitspolizei und Sicherheitsdienst / "Security Police and Intelligence Service"), was also responsible for the administration of the transit camp at Mechelen & even played a major role in persuading Jews to turn up voluntarily for deportation. In the period of cover's mailing, July 1944, the German military administration (Militärverwaltung) was replaced with a civilian administration (Zivilverwaltung), greatly increasing the power of the more radical Nazi Party and SS organisations until the Allied liberation in September 1944 (Brussels liberated 7 Sept.). The AJB was dissolved already in August.

Holocaust-era Hungarian conversion document of Budpest Evangelical Church 1944
32870639
Holocaust-era Hungarian conversion document: 16 March 1944 dated "extract" of the Budpest Evangelical Church confirming the conversion of 3 family members. Although the "Second Jewish Law" of 1939 had already defined Jews by race instead of just religion, thus altering the status even of those who had formerly converted from Judaism to Christianity, here on 12 March 1944 the Germans occupied Hungary ("Operation Margarethe") and in short order the new more pro-Nazi administration would begin the process of more forcefully implementing the Holocaust in Hungary and legalizing the local extreme right-wing Arrow Cross party (from 22 March).

3x Soviet-Polish Holocaust survivor post-WWII documents, 1946-47
35870640
Holocaust survivor in the USSR: lot 3x documents relating to the movements & whereabouts of Jewish-Polish Holocaust survivor, Berek Frydman. A) Soviet 'Letter of Reference' issued to citizen 'Fridman, B.' who works in the invalid workers' cooperative 'Molot' in the capacity of an at-home shoemaker.'; the document was issued on 1 Nov. 1946, in the Yuzhno-Kazakhstan Oblast (South Kazakhstan Region) in Turkmenistan. A subsequent document shows that Frydman was born in a Polish city occupied by the Germans (i.e. not the Soviets) in 1939; Frydman may have escaped the German advance and entered Soviet territory (after which the Soviets may have deported him eastward), or perhaps he survived a camp and was liberated by the Soviets. It may be that Frydman was liberated - that would explain his presence at an invalid's workers' cooperative. B) Polish work certificate issued by the Employment Office for the Wroclaw (formerly Breslau) district - in the city of Walbryzch, on 8 May 1947 (i.e. 2 years after the Second World War) - though stamped both by the Polish office and by the Soviet administration. It appears that Frydman was repatriated back to Poland, and he worked at an electrical firm. His presence there was confirmed 3 separate times that year by the stamps on the back of the form - until September 1947. C) Polish-issued temporary certification of identity, issued roughly a year after the reference letter (31 Dec. 1947) by the authorities in the city of Zarad (in the county of Walbrzych) - on Stalina Street #11 (note the predominance of Stalin's name in Eastern Europe at this time) - to Frydman, who is listed as being born in Pulawy. This certificate's validity expired a year later. The document is stamped by the city authorities.

This tiny locale was in South Bucovina near border with Hungary, an area which remained in Romania & not ceded to USSR in June 1940. Romania was then neutral but the Antonecu-Iron Guard government was established on 4 Sept & physical harm to Jews began 14 Sept. with an anti-Semitic Iron Guard campaign (hence curious/distressing reason for postcard's return).

Wartime WWII/Holocaust-era incoming Red Cross mail: stampless Danish Red Cross contact form with 25 word message in English dated 11-12-1940 from German-occupied COPENHAGEN to TEL AVIV, tied by local Danish Red Cross cachet + air mail etiquette - this unusual; front-stamped by IRC GENEVA circular cachet + 23 DEC 1940 transit (dater at bottom; relatively quick transit time - perhaps by airmail); passed Palestine censor T5 in TEL AVIV. The composed tone of the message reflects the general atmosphere of the German occupation regarding the Jews, as here the implementation of anti-Semitic policies was resisted by the Danes. Unusual postal link.

1/1942 WWII-Holocaust CENSORED Dutch Red Cross mail from THE HAGUE to REHOVOT
26270918
Wartime WWII/Holocaust-era incoming Red Cross mail: 28 JAN 1942 stampless Dutch Red Cross contact form with 25 word message dated 20 Jan, from THE HAGUE to REHOVOT, dispatched with dater; in transit 12 FEB 1942 in IRC Geneva; censored (in Palestine?) and text cut out; passed Palestine censor in TEL AVIV (2 strikes hexigonal cachet) & marked by rare "Imperial Censorship, Palestine... form may not be used for reply message" 3-line instructional handstamp (Sacher unlisted). Scarce postal link & unusual censorship on Red Cross mail. One may be tempted to ask, as incoming mail during Holocaust era, what could there have been for the Palestine censor to obliterate: per censor policies (per 1942 policy document) to remove "indiscreet" information or "bad morale" which was permitted to pass through the originating postal system.

29270919
Contact from "the heart of darkness", wartime WWII/Holocaust 2-way mail via Red Cross: stampless British Red Cross/Order of St. John "Postal Message Scheme" contact form with German message of under 25 words, dated 8-12-1941, from HAIFA to TARNOW "Occupied Poland", inquiring about condition of sender's parents; passed HAIFA censor H17 (Sach-Q23, 1 month before his earliest known date of use) on way to overseas dispatch through Red Cross office JERUSALEM; front-stamped 31 DEC 1941 transit at IRC in GENEVA & forwarded to Polish Red Cross where received in WARSAW on 13 MARZ 1942 (front-stamped): here address altered in pencil by removing reference to "occupied Poland" with "GG" (Generalgouvernment - an annexed zone of 'former' Poland in which the term 'Poland' was not used) & "District Krakow" (one of 4 such in the GG); additional Polish date-stamp at base 25 MARZ 1942 may be dispatch date to TARNOW (2 week delay); reply in German manuscript on back "We are all healthy, Gross Arie" dated 27 IV 1942 (1 month since local transit); received back by IRC GENEVA on 24 JUIN 1942 (backstamped) who forwarded it back to the British Red Cross in JERUSALEM, front-stamped 21 AU 42 transit using 3m Postage Paid date-cancel - unusual usage but observed on reply-returned Red Cross correspondence originating from Palestine; here passed J18 censor (Sach-Q21b handstamp 3 months after his last known date of use) & arrived same day in HAIFA, where passed KK/26 censor (Sach-Q29, 4 months before his earliest known date of use).

8 month round-trip transit time, reasonable for surface mail. The first major act of extermination in Tarnow began June 1942; locale was "Jew free" by late 1943. Rare two-way wartime correspondence between Palestine & Poland, however the terseness of the reply from Poland raises suspicions about its authenticity (as the Nazis were known to forge fake reply correspondence to Jews abroad).
