I just received this passport from a fellow collector in Asia. The passport was marked with the letter "J" to signify that the bearer was a Jew. After the 5 of October 1938 all passports of German Jewish citizens were marked with the now infamous "J". It appears the bearer escaped Germany through France and arrived in South America. I believe that this is an important historical document from a very dark period in history. Items like this need to be saved as a memorial to the Holocaust.
