Anti-Israel Propaganda “Own Goal” of the Day
Comes courtesy of the ever-reliable (when it comes to own goals) Quds News Network:
I am sure Joseph Farber would be turning in his (Jewish) grave knowing his passport was being used in a clumsy attempt to show that there was once a (British mandate) Palestine. Or something.
By the way, the photo of the passport was clearly taken from this old Passport collector’s website.
My name is Neil and I have been collecting old passports & documents for over 20 years. With a family connection to the Holocaust, my interest in the Second World War has been a part of me ever since I was at school…my goal is to teach the young about the war and the Holocaust with the items I collect and save for posterity.
As for the above passport and its owner:
Exquisitely used and extended by the State of Israel in 1948.
The passport was issued to Berlin born Joseph Farber, a Jew, who escaped Nazi Germany before the war erupted. At the time of issuance, he was residing in Switzerland undertaking studies in chemistry-engineering, and living at Lausanne.
The passport is beautifully used for nearly every western European country including the desired Allied Military Government (AMG) visas, most likely for visiting his “home”.
An interesting addition to the passport can be found at the back, were the newly created State of Israel applied additional sheets of paper to the already over used passport, these “Israeli passport pages” have inside the AMG applied visas.
This passport came with two more early Israeli passports; all connected to his studies in Europe and later on travel on work related trips.
