    Default hand-written in German

    Hi,

    This question is for someone who know German...the hand-written word "Uberwagung", if I am not wrong, what would it mean? it is written above the "AUSENTHALTSERLAUBIS" from 1933 (4th scan).

    Many thanks,

    Neil.

    It's ‹bertragung - or "transfer" meaning the stamp, in this case a Residence Permit, was already issued and "transfered" to a new document. It may be that the person had a different passport when the Permit was originally acquired and then got a new one or another personal identity document that required the Permit to be transfered.

    Did he cease to be a German citizen by virtue of being Jewish? The passport appears to give the person the status of being stateless, although issued by the German authorities presumably after the racial laws passed into being. Definately one of the lucky ones to get a visa for Palestine at the time there being a low quota set by the protecting power, Britain, to avoid conflict with the arabs.

    His listed city of birth is Strzanow in Czechoslovakia.

    I would think he wound up in Germany as a result of the collapse of Austro-Hungarian empire. Anti-semitism was rampant in Czechoslovakia immediately after the first world war. There were anti-Jewish riots in Prague, Moravia and Slovakia in 1918-19. The 1920's, especially later in the decade, weren't much better. Some of the popular right wing and fascist Czech political parties specifically targeted Jews in their platforms.

    The dates on the documents pre-date the anti-Jewish laws in Germany.

    Chances are he managed to get to Germany as a stateless refugee fleeing Czechoslovakia at some point and from there emmigrated to Palestine. The name Rosenzweig is a German spelling. That implies some connection to Germany and that may have facilitated his German residence permit while he was in the process of emmigrating.
