Five (5) sheets of German food ration cards overstamped in red ink with the word ‘JUDE’ to be used only by Jews. Chief among the methods utilized for the annihilation of the Jewish people was starvation. Jewish ration cards were distinctly marked with the word ‘Jew’ in color across the face of the cards so that the storekeepers could readily identify and discriminate against Jewish purchasers. in addition, some coupons are stamped ‘Invalid’ to further limit the rations. Issued in Berlin, valid for a period in 1943 and 1944, various colors and sizes. Five pieces.
