About this Item

Single leaf with double sided printing. 4to. [1] pages. 28 cm. First Edition. In Hungarian. An application by the well-known Jewish opera-singer to the Hungarian government for, presumably, an exit permit from Budapest. This document bears the signature of Eva Lederer, the famous opera-singer, who was able to receive a Shutzpass from Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg. Wallenberg’s protective passports saved thousands of Hungarian Jews during the war, allowing them safe travel out of Hungary. Esteemed classical pianist Annie Fischer and her husband, musicologist Aladar Toth, both of whom fled Budapest, are referenced on the document, presumably as Lederer’s Swedish contacts. Subjects: Schutzpass. Refugees – Hungary. Raoul Wallenberg. Vertical and horizontal creases from previous folds. Small section, approx. 1.5 x 1.75 inches (38mm x 44mm) , has been cut out of the leaf, possibly to reuse an official stamp or photograph that may have been affixed. Good + condition. A very significant association piece. (HOLO2-112-7). Bookseller Inventory # 32691
