German passport - Krakau consulate issue - 1938
Thought of sharing this interesting German passport.
The issuing date and location is nice, a year before the war. The holder, Jewish, used it to travel back to eastern Poland and via Romania to Palestine in 1939...the mother had Austrian-Hungarian status and was born in Viena, thus following the 1938 Anschlus was able to obtain a German passport, both for her and her daughter here.

glad they made it out of Europe in time.
Very interesting document!..
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
We can find German issued passes (J) but consulate issues are very rare.
Most rare are those issued in British Palestine from the end of 1938 to late 1939.
Here are images from 1939 or 1940, found in the NKVD files in 1941.
What is interesting is that NO SUCH INDIVIDUAL by that name ever lived or was born in Germany in that year! so surely this raises questions on the Reisepass these images were taken from...
