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.
