RAOUL WALLENBERG – INCREDIBLY RARE SIGNED SCHULTZ-PASS FROM 1944, WW2 (w/ COA):
Here\'s a unique opportunity to purchase an incredibly rare WW2 relic... An original 1944 schutz-pass issued and signed by Raoul Wallenberg during the Second World War. Wallenberg signed with an ink scribble \"R\" (as he commonly did on these documents.
The document is in German and Hungarian, dated September 26, 1944. The protective passport was made to save the life of 25-year-old Katalin Szász, a Holocaust Survivor. Upper left provides information about her, including the 1919 birth year, height, eye, and hair color. The upper right is a photo ofKatalin Szász and her signature. Bottom portion be
The bottom portion bears printed statements in German and Hungarian, signed in the lower left corner by Raoul Wallenberg, and countersigned by Swedish Minister to Budapest, Carl Ivan Danielsson.
Wallenberg arrived in Hungary in July 1944 as the country\'s Jewish population was under siege. Nearly every other major Jewish community in Europe had already been decimated, and the Nazis were dispatching more than 10,000 Hungarian Jews to the gas chambers daily. With time of the essence, he devised and distributed thousands of these \'Schutz-Passes\'—official-looking, but essentially invalid, Swedish passports granting the Hungarian bearer immunity from deportation. Nazi officials readily accepted the paperwork.Thus, with his simple, nondescript scribble on this offered page, Wallenberg saved the life ofKatalin Szász—just as he had done with tens of thousands of other Jews in Hungary. An announcement that any Jew, even those holding foreign citizenship, would be interred led to the urgency of Wallenberg\'s plan to save as many lives as he could. An important reminder of one heroic man\'s tireless efforts to outwit the Nazis and save countless lives.
Please note: The back side of the document has some handwriting, which seems (to my eyes) to be in the exact same color blue that\'s of Wallenberg\'s signature. Meaning that it may be handwritten by Wallenberg on the back (see photo 2).
Includes:Letter of Authenticity by John Reznikoff (University Archives).
Measurements:13.25x 8.25 inches (33,5 x 21 cm).
