This travel pass, issued to Mr. Hirsch (father of the donor) in 1944, gave him permission to travel through France during the war. His nationality is listed as German, as Hirsch was born in 1878 in Saffig, Germany. The Hirsch family had moved to France in 1935. Using this pass, Hirsch and his wife travelled from Tence to Le Puy, and back, in order to see a doctor. The pass is marked with a red stamp of the French word ?Juif? (Jew). Jews in France were subjected to discriminatory legislation, according to the October 1940 laws of the ?Statut des Juifs? issued by the collaborationist Vichy regime.
