Unauthorized Salvadoran citizenship certificate made out to Rabbi Akiba Glasner (b. April 19, 1885 in Cluj), his wife Hermine (nee Blum) Glasner (b. January 20, 1895 in Sarospatak) and daughter Sulamith (b. June 10, 1928) by George Mandel-Mantello, First Secretary of the Salvadoran Consulate in Geneva and sent to them in Cluj.

The older daughter of the Glasner family, Esther Lewenstein lived in Zurich during the war and requested the certificates for her family. Rabbi Glasner later wrote a book dedicated to George Mantello for his assistance. The Glasners survived having come to Switzerland on the Kasztner transport.
