This duplicate of a reserve pass belonged to Heinrich Gerstenhaber and expired in 1927. The 14 page booklet is affixed with an Austrian 2000 Kronen stamp. It was used by Heinrich (also called Hersch or Henry), Adele Gerstenhaber, and their two children in their quest to provide adequate documentation for emigration from Nazi Germany to the United States. This document represents one step in the journey that the Gerstenhabers undertook before they were finally allowed to immigrate to the US in 1939.
