Small tile with the image of a tiger brought with Drs. Hildegard and Johannes Bielski, who left for the United States, with their daughter Marion, in November 1939. In July 1938, the Drs. Bielski were forbidden to practice medicine because they were Jewish. With assistance from a family friend, they received US visas.
