Card from Lodsch / Lodz / Litzmannstadt Ghetto, stationery with imprint of 'Der Aelteste der Juden in Litzmannstadt' / 'The [Council of] Jewish Elders from Chaim Rumkowski. Slightly worn, soiled, genuinely used condition. A real piece of Jewish history. Note that the middle name 'Sara' was inserted in the address, and sara was used as the middle name for both sender and receiver reverse. Due to the Anti-Semitic Nuremberg laws Jewish women had to use "Sara" as a middle name and men had to use "Israel", so everyone would always know the person was Jewish. We've had court papers documenting the prosecution of individuals for not using these names as directed by law.

Real Photo Postcard (RPPC) of Adolf Hitler with Bernile Nienau, who had a Jewish mother and grandmother and was thus determined by Martin Bormann to be unfit to see Hitler. Hoffmann was also pressured to stop producing this (and other) photos because of the girls ancestry. [See Wikipedia article] Poor little Bernile died from polio at the age of 17 in Munich. This photo of her and AH, autographed and dedicated by Hitler, sold for over $11K in early 2019. This is much cheaper.
