This is the 1935-1936 membership card of Deborah Ehrenhalt, for the Jewish Cultural Federation of Dusseldorf. Originally called the Cultural Federation of German Jews, the Nazis forced the federation to remove ?German? from its name in 1935.

The Ehrenhalt and her family were able to escape Nazi Germany for the US after an aunt in New York started the immigration process on their behalf and without their knowledge. They left for New York on June 30, 1936, Ehrenhalt?s son Samuel?s eleventh birthday.
