Postcard and newspaper article relating to Kristallnacht

Document | Accession Number: 1994.A.0021 | RG Number: RG-10.104

The postcard with stamps post marked on 09 November 1938 (the date of Kristallnacht) celebrates the treaty Adolf Hitler signed with Neville Chamberlain at Munich, Germany on 29 September 1938. The postcard, which shows images of Hitler, Mussolini, and Chamberlain, has the legend "Zur historischen Begegnung, 29. Septbr. 1938 in Munchen," and the postmark commemorates the anniversary of the 1923 putsch in Munich, characterizing the city as the "Haupstadt der Bewegung." The photocopied newspaper article from the"El Paso times" (dated exactly 50 years later) describes a television documentary about Kristallnacht; the same photocopy of the article also includes a copy of a one-mark note from the Łódź (a.k.a. Litzmannstadt) ghetto.
