    Consists of extracts of minutes taken by a clerk for the Justice of the Peace in Paris, France's Ninth Arrondissement and a divorce decree issued by a court in Vienna, relating to the divorce of Leopoldine Staud Muliar and Mosche Muliar. The extract of minutes, taken in October 1938, was used by Moische Leib Muliar to immigrate to the United States, and it describes the place and date of his birth. The divorce decree dates from March 9, 1940, and it describes how the Nuremberg Laws and Moische's immigration to the United States had influenced Leopoldine Muliar to seek a divorce from Moische, a Jewish man.

    Leopoldine S. Muliar
    Leopoldine Johanna Staud was born in Austria on Nov. 22, 1896, to a Roman Catholic family. Sometime between 1923 and 1924, Leopoldine became pregnant with a man she could not marry. To prevent the child from being born illegitimate, she married Moische Leib Muliar, a Jewish man, on Feb. 24, 1924. Muliar insisted that Leopoldine convert to Judaism and that the child be raised Jewish. In 1938, Muliar fled to Paris, France, leaving Leopoldine with no means of support, and in Oct. 1938 Muliar applied to leave France for the United States. In Muliar's absence, Leopoldine renounced the Jewish religion and became a Roman Catholic again. In addition, fearing persecuton under the Nuremberg Laws, Leopoldine asked for a divorce decree and claimed that she had been abandoned. Leopoldine's petition for a divorce was granted to her on Mar. 9, 1940. Leopoldine left Europe for the United States sometime during World War II.
