Vintage Eretz Israel postcard Colony Em-El-Jemal, Edition de la Palestine Moderne
34170302
Eretz Israel-Palestina vintage 1900-1910's era color picture postcard "View of the Colony Em-El-Jemal near Haifa, Galilee", with French-only text/subtitles (with allotted space on back for text in German or in Russian); number 29A of the series, by Edition de la Palestine Moderne of Jaffa. Used domestically in Turkey, locally in ISTANBUL, dated 24-6-1939 (postmarks on front and back). The depiction on the postcard is unusual: the settlement with its then-contemporary rooved houses looks like a Jewish 'colony' but the name belongs to a locale in Jordan, near the desert - and not near Haifa or the Galilee.

American Judaica picture postcard of Beth Tefila Temple Cincinnati, railway mail
30670422
Jewish Synagogues: US > Ohio > Cincinnati - BETH TEFILA TEMPLE (Schachne Isaacs Synagogue/Shul) on color rendition of black and white photograph original (here without power-lines & street lamps) illustrated postcard by Cincinnati News Company with printed caption on front. Used: postmarked (unclear date) apparently via RMS (Railway Mail Service) to ELMWOOD Rhode Island & franked 1c; backstamped BOSTON NEW LONDON Jun 14 1887(?) transit. Beth Tephila was the Synagogue built by the Orthodox Lithuanian Jewish community under Schachne Isaacs and several associates, who were dissatisfied with the unorthodox tendencies shown by the congregations then existing in Cincinnati, so becoming the largest and one of the oldest Orthodox congregations west of the Alleghanies. The congregation was founded in 1869 and the structure depicted on the postcard appears to be the community's 3rd Shul owing to its rapid growth, a former Baptist Church at 426 Carlisle Ave., which served the community between 1881 and 1906. The community existed at least until 1959 (perhaps later).

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
28970638
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
29370639
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
31570640
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.
