1 page, double-sided. Travel pass, issued by the Belgian Consulate in Perpignan, France, authorizing Bernhard Otto Fischer to travel freely in the French Occupied Zone and cross the border into Belgium, accompanied by Otto Bondy. Circular stamp on back, b.r has insignia in centre. Narrative: Otto Bondy and Bernhard Otto Fischer escaped the St-Cyprien internment camp in September or October 1940. At the Belgian Consulate, Mr. Fischer was initially refused the travel pass because the consulate only issued travel documents for Belgian nationals (he was Austrian). The officer would not complete the form with the necessary stamp and signature. The escaped men left with the unstamped document, and later convinced 2 gendarmes on the street that they were Belgian and needed their travel pass validated, and were taken to the Gendarmerie where the document was stamped and signed. Mr. Fischer subsequently added Mr. Bondy's name to the document as authorized travel companion. Otto Bondy was the father of the donor, Walter Absil. He was born in Vienna, Austria on January 1, 1897, and fled to Belgium with his family in 1938. He was deported from the Malines (Melechen) transit camp in Belgium to Auschwitz in September 1943, where he was murdered. Bernhard Otto Fischer was Mr. Absil's uncle (his mother's brother). He survived the war and settled in the United Kingdom.

Notes
1 page, single-sided. Folded three times horizontally and once vertically. Document is a temporary travel permit for Jacob (Jakob) Baron, issued in place of a travel pass (sauf conduit) in Luchon (Bagnères-de-Luchon) on December 16. 1942. Document permits him to travel by rail, via the Haute-Garonne - Toulouse - Limoges route, to see his family. The pass is valid for 3 weeks, until January 6, 1943. It was issued in Luchon (Bagnères-de-Luchon), and is signed by the Chief Adjutant Brigade Commander. Document was torn and taped back together, 2 cm of the form is missing under bottom horizontal fold crease. Form is nearly identical to that of his wife, Rose (2002.13.09). Narrative: Jakob (Jacob) Baron, born 1902 in Wieruszów, Poland, was the father of the donor, Maurice Baron. The family fled south to Toulouse in 1940, where they were assigned forced residence status on February 2, 1941. The Vichy Statute of October 4, 1940 stated that foreign Jews could at any time be assigned a forced residence by the prefect of the department in which they resided. This forced residence was in Bagnères-de-Luchon, on the Spanish border. On December 17, 1942 the Barons left Bagnères-de-Luchon, crossed the Pyrenees on foot, entered Spain and lived in Barcelona for one year. Based on the date of this document, it is possible that this travel permit enabled the family to travel out of Bagnères-de-Luchon and get to Spain. The Barons obtained visas to enter Canada via Portugal and travelled to Philadelphia via the Serpa Pinto, which left Lisbon on March 23, 1944 and docked in Philadelphia on April 6, 1944. They arrived in Montreal by train on April 8, 1944.

Notes
Typewritten letter of permit, stamped, on back of stationary from Oscar Schindler’s enamelware factory. Issued to Israel Falk, a former concentration camp prisoner, to travel from Brnenec to his home in Warsaw, Poland. Narrative: Israel (Ignacy) Falk was born on 4 February 1904 in Warsaw, Poland. He was the son of a tailor and began to work for a living at age 14. He lacked formal education but secured a job as a bookkeeper in a print shop. Eventually he earned enough to support a wife and child. Shortly after deportations began in 1942 his parents, siblings, and their families had been taken to the Treblinka gas chambers. In September, Falk was put on a train to Treblinka, but was able to pull off the window bars and jump from the train. He returned to the ghetto. In March 1943 he arranged for his wife and 11-year-old son, Michael, to escape. They spent the remainder of the war hiding with a Polish friend. Falk remained in the ghetto to aid the resistance with smuggling in weapons and bomb supplies. On 19 April 1943, Falk and the remaining Jews made a stand when the SS came to deport them. They held off the Nazis for several weeks until the ghetto was torched. Falk was one of the few survivors. He was captured and sent to Budzyn. Four two years he endured four different concentration camps. The last was Schindler's Factory in Brunlitz in 1945. That same year Russian troops liberated the area and Falk was able to return to his family in France. They immigrated to Canada in 1949 on the SS Samaria. At some point after the war he remarried (as the result of the death or divorce of his first wife (?)). He was an activist in the Labour Movement. During the National Convention of the Labour Committee at the Chelsea Hotel, Atlantic City, NY, in 1947 Mr. Falk was one of the key speakers. He was a strong speaker regarding the Holocaust, but he didn't talk about Schindler much until after watching 'Schindler's List' with his family. Israel died in Montreal on 13 December 1996.
