Photograph | Photograph Number: 42879

Identification card and laisser-passer paper belonging to Nety Hirsch which allowed her to continue living and working in Paris because it benefited the Nazis.

The papers, which were initially valid between December 1942 and March 1943, were extended until until March 31, 1944 at which point the Hirsch family went into hiding.

The text of the Laisser-Passer reads:

"Der inhaber dieses Ausweises arbeited im Pelzgewerbe fuer die Deutsche Wehrmacht. Eine Verhaftung dieser Person sowie der untenangegebenen Familienangehoerigen kann ohne besondere Genehmigung nicht erfolgen, ausser Rechstverstoessen. Nach Beendigung des Arbeitsverhaeltnisses ist der Ausweis an umstehende Dienststelle abzugeben. Jeder Missbrauch wird steng bestraft."

Translated:

"The owner of this identification card works in the fur industry for the German army. An arrest of this person or the below-specified family members cannot proceed without special approval, outside of a right violation. After the end of the working relationship, the identification must be handed over to the surrounding agency. Each abuse will be harshly punished."
