Notes
1 page, double-sided. Folded once horizontally and once vertically. Green fiscal stamp with value of 30 groszy affixed at top right corner. Document is a school report issued to David Honig from a private Jewish trade high school in Kraków, Poland for the 1935-36 school year. On recto, document is printed on school letterhead, with personal information about the student beneath it, followed by a printed list of subjects within a rectangular border. One-word assessments are handwritten to the right of each subject. On verso, report is signed by school officials. Grading legend at bottom. Narrative: School report was issued to donor's husband, David Honig. David was born in Mielec, a shtetl near Krakow, Poland. His parents were Psachie and Miriam Honig, and he had a sister named Helen. David studied business at a private Jewish trade school in Kraków from 14 to 17 years old. At 17, upon graduating, he returned to Mielec to work at his family's flour mill. When the Russian army invaded their region in 1940, David was going to be drafted into the army. His mother told the soldiers that David had typhus; when they come to the Honig home, she bandaged his head and put red water on it to appear that he was bleeding. David wasn't drafted. With his uncle and seven other men, David was smuggled to Romania with the help of a guide. David brought along his tie and his school report. Along the way the group had to cross a river and they all had to hold their belongings above their heads to protect them from the water. This is how David was able to salvage his tie and school report. David’s parents and sister were saved by a Polish Gentile by the name of W?adys?aw Dobrowolski who used to be a customer at their mill. He hid them throughout the war; he is recognized as a Righteous Among the Nations. The Honigs were the only family from their shtetl to survive intact.

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.
