Document is a shopping booklet, used for controlling the purchase of household goods in a rationing system. Belonged to Pal Weinberger. Inside cover contains printed text warning that merchants and traders can only sell as much as is set by the ministry guidelines. All merchants were obligated to note the quantity of goods they sold to the holder of the booklet. Failure to do this could result in fines or imprisonment.

He was deported to Auschwitz with the rest of his extended family, survived the selection and was sent to Buchenwald. He became very ill there and was shot as the camp was being liberated. Gusztáv returned from the front to learn that 34 members of his extended family, including his wife and small daughter Évike, had been deported to Auschwitz. Only one cousin returned. He remarried Anikó Schwartz and they had two daughters, Elaine and Judith. This collection of correspondence was used as part of the research for the following book: Kalman Naves, Elaine.
