Further Information: This National Registration Identity Card 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 National Registration Identity Card was issued to Rudi in Britain because he was not yet a naturalised citizen.
