Hungarian Holocaust Doc. 1944

Hungarian Holocaust Doc. 1944Certificate issued in April 1944 to one Miklos Klein for industrial studies. Note the prominent Zs imprinted on red representing the equivalent of Jude in Hungarian to identify all Jews on Hungarian official documents. This document is from Budapest, apparently from the Dohany section, where the famous Dohany Synagogue was recently reopened after many years of reconstruction, and for which both the Hungarian and Israel postal services issued stamps.
