Peter - Identification Card

Subject

Germany, 1930s

Description

In the fall of 1938, Nazi authorities required all Jews in Germany to carry identity cards stamped with the letter “J” for Jude (Jew). German Jews whose names did not instantly identify them as Jewish had to add the name “Sara” for women and “Israel” for men. Peter Lederman, his father Ernst, and his mother Irmgard thus experienced increased exclusion in Germany.
