Unauthorized Salvadoran citizenship paper issued to Rabbi Jehuda Glasner (b. May 19, 1918 in Koloszvar), his wife Deborah (b. 1919) and their son Moses (b. June 29, 1943) by George Mandel-Mantello, First Secretary of the Salvadoran Consulate in Geneva, and sent to them in Koloszvar.

Rabbi Jehuda Glasner never received the certificate since he was already in a labor battalion. His older daughter of the Glasner family, Esther Lewenstein lived in Zurich during the war and requested the certificates for her family. His father Rabbi Akiva Glasner father later wrote a book dedicated to George Mantello for his assistance. His wife and son, Deborah and Moses survived having come to Switzerland on the Kasztner transport.
