Thought of sharing this interesting WW2 travel document.
The holder was a Polish national but his status was lost, or 'undetermined' following the out break of war once he reached Lithuania. During 1939 to 1941 several thousand Polish refugees managed to find themselves in Lithuania, not being able and not wanting to return to occupied Poland. Those who where lucky managed to flee east to Japan via Siberia and some went to British Palestine, the Jewish refugees. This individual here opted for the latter, and on December of 1940 managed to obtain the right exit permits from the occupying forces and arrive, via Moscow, to Odessa, where he boarded a ship to Turkey (transit visa obtained in Moscow earlier). Once in Turkey he secured his entry visa to Haifa: thus manging to avoid the fate of thousands of others who where gunned down into pits half a year later by the Germans. These type of papers also had, for a short period of time, the infamous Japanese transit visas to Japan (July-August of 1940).
One of the lucky ones indeed...
