Id no. 1105.91, Document, German
The Union of German and Stateless Anti-Fascists in the Netherlands is providing vertification that Rudolf Gerson was enrolled in the organization September 1945 after thorough examination of his political attitudes during war. He was anti-Nazi and his attitudes and activities were beyond doubt. It acknowledges the danger involved in his providing of false papers for the underground movement.

Verein deutscher und staatenloser Antifaschisten (VDSA) was founded in May 1945, as a successor organization to the Wartime 'Interessengemeinschaft anti-faschistischer Deutscher in den Niederlanden' (League of Anti-fascist Germans in the Netherlands), which was active in the resistance from 1944 on; their aim was to protect the legal status of Jewish emigrants and German refugees; in Nov. 1947 the ,Verein' was discontinued.
