[Gestapo lists of Jews who have fled Germany and to be re-arrested on their return] 1937-1938

Scope and Contents

Bound list of dozens of war-dated copies of typed transcripts of correspondence between Gestapo and SS Headquarters in Berlin, and Gestapo and SS Headquarters in Osnabruck, covering the period February 12, 1937 to September 15, 1938. The documents are identical in form: in letters signed in type, some by Heinrich Muller, Berlin provides the names of those who have emigrated and have therefore been stripped of their citizenship with instructions that the individuals be arrested should they attempt to reenter the country. The emigrant's name, date of birth, place of birth, and last place of residence in Germany are included in alphabetical order. These copies were then sent to the local gendarmeries for reference once a suspected illegal immigrant was arrested. [Bookseller's description]

Avis aux Israelites... (Notice to Jews...) circa 1940

Scope and Contents

Broadside issued by Mayor Gaston Chardin of the Paris suburb of Champigny-sur-Marne, September 26, 1940, about three months after France collapsed and surrendered to Germany. The broadside reads, in part, "Notice to Israelites. On the order of the Authorities of the occupation, the Israelites must present themselves, carrying identification documents, at the City Hall of Champigny...before 2 October at the latest in order to complete an identify form. Failure to appear within the prescribed time limits, the above-referred people expose themselves to the most severe measures...." [Bookseller's description]

Liste der Aerzte aus der Slovakei... [List of doctors from Slovakia who died as partisans or in concentration camps] circa 1945

Scope and Contents

Two documents evidencing the efforts of Jewish doctors in Slovakia who fought the pro-Nazi government and were killed or murdered in German concentration camps. The typed documents bear no place or date but were likely prepared ion Bratislava late in the war or at the war's end, and were with several manuscript marginal annotations on both, made in the same hand. On the first document, nearly 100 doctors from Bratislava and elsewhere are listed by name, specialty, and location, and all most all were Jews. Several names are added by hand, one with the notation "Transport". Other doctors are listed under the headings "Doctors who fell as a partisan with the sword in his hand" and "Doctors who fought but remained alive". The second list contains many similar names, and may have been an earlier list made by the same editor. [Bookseller's description]
