"J" MARKED NAZI PASSPORT FOR A JEW

ISSUED TO A FEMALE JEW FROM MANNHEIM WHO MANAGED TO GET OUT OF GERMANY IN 1939!

This interesting Nazi German passport was issued on 30 November 1938 to Wilhelmine Mayer. Her passport contains a full page visa issued by the Consul of Chile in Berlin. She departed to South America from Cuxhaven and entered Chile on 12 July 1939.

The big letter "J" on the first page in the passport instantly identified the owner as a Jew (see photo below). Since 1938 the so called "Judenstempel" (Jew Stamp), a big red letter "J" was stamped into the passports of Jews by the Nazi German authorities. Besides that, Nazi racial laws made it mandatory that from 1 January 1939 on every Jewish female had to take on the middle name Sara and every Jewish male the middle name Israel. Because this passport that is offered for sale here had been issued in 1938 Wilhelmine Mayers was not required to take on the middle name Sara. The "J" stamped passports were only valid for one year (!) and if Mrs. Mayers would have renewed her passport in 1939 she would have been required to take on the middle name Sara. Not every country allowed Jews to enter the country at that time and because of the "Judenstempel" a lot of Jews were probably rejected. They either had to find a different route out of Nazi Germany or remain under Nazi control and live under constant danger!

She left Nazi Germany by ship on 17 June 1939, leaving from Cuxhaven, headed for Chile.
