1948 Berlin, Germany Jewish Community Ration Book - Very Rare Post-wwii Item For Sale

1948 Berlin, Germany Jewish Community Ration Book - Very Rare Post-wwii Item

1948 BERLIN, GERMANY JEWISH COMMUNITY RATION BOOK - VERY RARE POST-WWII ITEM

Amazing piece of history here and a little known period in Jewish history in economically strapped and slowly recoveringBerlin post-World War II right at the height of the Soviet Berlin Blockade and at the beginning of the Berlin Airlift in 1948. This measures 5.5" by 3" -- I ran the words throughan onlinetranslator and some of it reads as follows: "Jewish Community To Berlin Household Badge. Only Valid for the Jewish Community in Connection With An Identity Card.."

I found some very interesting background on the returning Jewish Community to Berlin after World War II and how they dealt withadivided Berlin, Germanyat Jewish Virtual Library. Many people are surprised to learn that Berlin had a Jewish community at all, let alone one that was divided by the Berlin Wall during the aftermath of WWII and during the Cold War. This will be of interest to scholars, museums, World War II collectors (especially WWII aftermath collectors), Berlin Airlift and Blockade collectors,Berlin, Germany collectorand Cold War Collectors. A fantastic piece of Jewish history and in great condition. Thank you.
