    I think that it is some sort of ID because the picture on the top left says something along the lines of:

    Patriot Polish USSR

    Executive Board

    ID Card


    Name and surname

    Year and place born 1903



    Date ?/??/1945

    This is a very rough translation but I hope it helps in someway.

    I'm sorry but I cannot read the city but I have more information:

    This is a contribution booklet to the Polish union with the USSR. The bottom pictures show the 12 months, Wysokość składki (Amount of Contribution), and Podpis skarbnika (Signature of the Treasurer)

    This person started his SKŁADKI CZŁONKOWSKIE (Membership) in maj (May) and it goes on to grudzień (December) of 1945.

    Many thanks.

    May I ask: was the holder a member who received contributions or gave them?
    Was this only Polish Patriots in the USSR, something like refugees in the USSR?

    I'm decently sure that this man was apart of the ZPP (Union of Polish Patriots) and contributed to them.

    Here is a brief history of the ZPP:

    The ZPP was formed in 1943 as a political body in the Soviet Union by Polish communists and controlled by Stalin. It would later become part of the communist rule in Poland after the war. The ZPP would gain power after April 1943 when the Soviet Union broke ties with the Polish government in exile after the Katyn Massacre. In May the ZPP helped create the 1 Dywizja Piechoty im. Tadeusza Kościuszki or the first Polish Armed Forces unit in the East.

    In June 1943 the ZPP was officially created and elected Wanda Wasilewska was president. In 1944 it recognized the State National Council and become involved in resettling Poles from Russia to Poland.

    It was disbanded in 1946.

    So in general this is a membership booklet for the Union of Polish Patriots (ZPP) with contribution records signed by the Treasurer of the ZPP.
