Further Information

This pale blue book was donated by Rudi Oppenheimer. Rudi was born on 1 October 1931, in Berlin, Germany. He was the middle of three children, and although he was born in Germany, the family were living in Holland at the time of their arrest by the Nazi regime. After liberation Rudi came to England, where he had surviving relatives. The blue booklet is an identity card and travel document issued to Rudi in the Netherlands as a temporary document enabling his passage to England. Rudi can remember the day his card was stamped with the travel permit as there had been an issue with getting the necessary arrangements in place.
