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.

1 horizontal page, single-sided. Folded once vertically. Document is a vaccination certificate for Albert Baron, issued by the Health Service of the Colonial Navigation Company. Document attests that he was vaccinated against smallpox on 1944-03-20, and a test on 1944-05-02 found him to be immune. Document is signed by the surgeon of the ship Serpa Pinto. Narrative: Albert Baron, born 1934, was the younger brother of the donor, Maurice Baron. Maurice Baron was born in Nancy, France in 1931. He fled south to Toulouse in 1940 with his family, 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. 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. The Serpa Pinto was a Portuguese transport ship, which sailed under the command of Captain Americo Dos Santos. With a capacity of 600 people, the ship made regular trips from Lisbon, Portugal to Rio de Janeiro, New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore. It has been estimated that the ship transported about 7800 refugees, among them hundreds of Jews during the Second World War.

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
1 page, double-sided. Folded once horizontally and once vertically. Document is a receipt for the request of or renewal of an identity card for Rose Baron née Klarman, but in fact served as residence permit for her forced residence status. Square b&w photograph of subject is affixed at top left corner of form, which is numbered 7275 by hand in red ink. Above the photo, a handwritten annotation in red ink says that a decision was read on February 12, 1941, and under the photo, in the same handwriting, it is noted that Rose has been issued a forced residence (résidence assignée). Receipt was issued in Toulouse for residence in Bagnères-de-Luchon on February 21, 1942, and is valid, only within the same municipality, until September 7, 1942. On verso, stamps indicate that the permit was renewed twice: from May 7, 1942 to November 7, 1942, and November 7, 1942 to May 7, 1943. On verso, top, illegible handwriting in red ink relating to the chief of police and the date November 9, 1942. Annotations and addendums in red ink serve to transform this form from a document for requesting/renewing identity cards to a residence permit for controlling and surveilling stateless Jews in the Free Zone of Vichy France. Narrative: Rayala (Rayzele, Rose, Rosa) Baron, née Klarman, born 1903 in Warsaw, Poland, was the mother of the donor, Maurice Baron. Maurice Baron was born in Nancy, France in 1931. He fled south to Toulouse in 1940 with his family, 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.

Notes
1 page, single-sided. Folded once vertically and 4 times horizontally. Missing vertical section on right side. Document states that Rosa Baron must present herself to the police every Sunday to ensure that she has not changed address. Document is numbered 317 and is written on the letterhead of the Barcelona Police Headquarters. Beneath letterhead, the words Concepcion Extranjeros refer to the fact that the Baron family are foreigners in Spain. It is dated June 9, 1943 and stamps at bottom of page indicate that she presented herself to the police the subsequent 2 Sundays (June 13 and 20, 1943). Her husband Jacob has a nearly identical form (2002.13.07). Narrative: Rayala (Rayzele, Rose, Rosa) Baron, née Klarman, born 1903 in Warsaw, Poland, was the mother of the donor, Maurice Baron. The family fled south to Toulouse in 1940, where they were assigned forced residence status on February 2, 1941.
