RARE ORIGINAL BIG DOCUMENTS GROUPING OF A

JEWISH DOCTOR FROM VIENNA

A VERY INTERESTING ACCOUNT OF THE PERSECUTION OF THE JEWS IN ANNEXED AUSTRIA

Offered for sale is a very interesting large documents grouping of a Jewish doctor who was born in Prague, where he also studied at the university and graduated with flying colors. He then moved to Vienna where he must have had a government position as a doctor. Then, after the annexation in 1938, the Nazi racial laws went into effect also in Austria and the documents in this lot show how his life became more and more unpleasant. One official document orders that he is no longer allowed to own a radio, another document, issued by the Police, tells him that he has to take on the mandatory middle name Israel for being Jewish, they stamped a big red ‘J’ into his passport that he was using quite a bit in the years before and that has many stamps and entries.  Another document tells him that he is no longer allowed to practice as a doctor and that he has been removed from his government position and yet another document orders him to pay RM 5.000,-- as the mandatory ‘Judenvermögensabgabe’ – a law went into effect that not only forbid Jews to work i.e. as doctors or lawyers but also that they had to turn over money and assets to the government. Other interesting documents are for example one from the Office for Jewish Migration in Vienna, stating that Dr. Fritz Israel Thorsch does not owe any money and a similar document from the Viennese IRS (Finanzamt)  stating the same. There are also some envelopes from the American embassy in Vienna but no letters, which let us make the assumption that he might have been able to migrate to the United States but we found no U.S. immigration stamps in his passport. All in all this group is a very interesting example of how a man, who obviously was smart because all his report cards (Zeugnisse) show that he passed every class or exam with the best possible results, pretty much lost everything except for his life in a very short period of time, only because he was Jewish. The group consists of a total of 25 documents: 10 Zeugnisse (report or exam cards), ‘J’ stamped passport, Train ID document that allowed him to buy train tickets for 50% off, his student handbook from the university of Prague as well as 13 other documents, some of them mentioned above.

above and below: his Austrian passport, issued long before the annexation, which had a large red 'J' added after the racial laws went into effect also in Austria in 1938

This official document orders him to take on the Jewish middle name 'Israel' and call himself from now on: Dr. Fritz Israel Thorsch

On 18 March 1938 he was fired from his job because he was Jewish
