Woven wool blanket with 3 raw fringed edges and 1 finished edge. The wool is different shades of grey (with some black) , giving the blanket a speckled look. Narrative: One of two blankets distributed to the donor, Marcel Tenenbaum, and his parents, by German guards. Blankets were given to inmates of Malines (Mechelen), a Belgian transit camp for Jews awaiting deportation to camps further east. The Tenenbaums had lived in Brussels since 1935, the year Marcel was born. They went into hiding in 1942, in the attic of a building belonging to the former employer of Marcel's father. In 1944, they were denounced and arrested. They were taken to Malines, but arrived after the last transport to Poland had left. The guards fled, asking the imprisoned Jews to tell the Allies that they had been well treated. The camp was liberated by British forces in September 1944, and the family returned to Brussels. They immigrated to Canada in 1951.

Notes
1 horizontal page, single-sided. Folded once horizontally and once vertically. 5 green, brown and white fiscal stamps with value of 30 groschen each affixed sideways in a horizontal row along bottom edge. Scrawled annotation in red coloured pencil at top right corner. Issued by the Tax Office of Brigittenau, Vienna, and stamped by the Foreign Exchange Office. Document is a tax clearance certificate for Salomon Heiss, Sala Hermann, and their daughter Erika, certifying that all outstanding taxes have been paid. Narrative: The tax clearance certificate was part of the bureaucratic machinery of Nazi Germany; it was key to the implementation of the Reich Flight Tax, which systematically stripped Jews fleeing Nazi persecution of their assets. Until October 1941, when Jewish emigration from the Third Reich became illegal, proof of payment of the Reich Flight Tax via the tax clearance certificate was necessary to legally emigrate. The percentage of funds confiscated increased over time, from 20% in 1934 to 96% in 1939. In order to flee, the Heiss family surrendered at least 90% of their assets to Nazi Germany. They fled Nazi-occupied Vienna in 1938, after Salomon was arrested and detained in Dachau for 3 days. They survived the war in Shanghai, immigrated to Israel in 1949, and eventually settled in Montreal.

Envelope addressed in blue ink to Mr. and Mrs. Berkowicz in Montreal. Sender's name and address, also in blue ink, along top edge of verso. Sent by Miss Leumartin in Bernac-Dessus, France. Narrative: Tuwja (Tuwyas, Tuwia, Tuvia, Tobias) Bercowicz (Berkowicz) was the father of the donor, Jack (Jacques) Berkowicz. Born in Vilna, Tuwyas immigrated to Belgium in 1933 and when Belgium fell to Nazi Germany in 1940, he fled to France, hoping to reach Morocco by boat from Marseilles. The donor's mother, Chana (Chane, Annie) (Trompeter) Berkowicz, born in Mielec, Poland, was living in Vienna, Austria with her parents and two sisters. In 1938, after the German annexation of Austria, the family fled, driving to France via Belgium. Tuwyas and Chana met in Lyon, France in 1941 and married. Their daughter Dorothée was born in 1942. The family attempted to flee France by boat in Marseilles, but were stopped by Vichy police. They fled Marseilles and went south, into the Pyrenees region, living in various small vilages. Their son Jack was born in Bernac-Dessus in 1944. The family survived the war and returned to Brussels from 1945-1948, and then immigrated to Canada with the help of the American Joint Distribution Committee. They were sponsored by Tuwyas' sister Luba, who was already living in Halifax. The Berkowicz family settled in Montreal.
