Jews May Not Join Red Cross, Jan 1, 1938.

Armband for Blind in Germany

"We had a budgerigar (small bird in the family of cocks). When we were told that Jews were no longer allowed to keep pets, my husband felt he could not part with his bird. (...) Maybe somebody denounced him, because one day he was summoned to the Gestapo. After living in fear for several weeks, I received a card from the police. I had to pick up my husband's ashes for a 3 RM fee."
