For your viewing is an extremely rare document’s holder for moving documents to Canada and USA. The holder has an inscription on a few languages including English and Ukrainian. This particular item has a very interesting story. Few months ago it was bought in Kiev (Ukraine) from Jewish family. They told what them uncle had been moved to Canada at the beginning on XX centuries. Three years ago they visited his family and received a few items belonged to his uncle Aron (including this holder). Right now this holder again located in Canada. BTW the youngest brother of Aron Gerhard (his family in 1901 moved to German and did not want to move to Canada) was in concentration camp Auschwitz and Dachau with prisoners number XXXXX -the buyer will receive this information.
History: With the beginning of the pogroms of Russia in the 1880s, and continuing through the growing anti-Semitism of the early 20th century, millions of Jews began to flee the Pale of Settlement and other areas of Eastern Europe for the West. Although the United States received the overwhelming majority of these immigrants, Canada was also a destination of choice due to Government of Canada and Canadian Pacific Railway efforts to develop Canada after Confederation. Between 1880 and 1930, the Jewish population of Canada grew to over 155,000.
Estimate price for this item is $1000+.
Guarantee: As you know for Holocaust artifacts it is very difficult to make Certificate of Authenticity – nobody has the right to do it, each of us has only his own opinion. And I cannot prove the authenticity – I was not there nor do I know the person that it belonged to. I think for most items of this sort of artifacts that unless you’ve known the person or were a family member, it is almost impossible to prove the authenticity. Also I am not a licensed dealer and can not give you a Certificate of Authenticity. For this purpose I give to all of my clients 3 days for inspecting the item – the item can be returned for any reason for a full refund (minus shipping costs, paypal or bank transfer fee…).
This is very important example of the history. A very sad reminder of a very sad time, but nevertheless a real piece of Jewish history to teach your children or for the avid collector of these items. You will appreciate and respect these items as we do not want to forget what these people went through. As long as we keep the memory alive in these collectables, we will always honour the sacrifice.

These items were used in history by those who were unwillingly subjected to the crewel world of War. MUSEUM grade item that puts a face on the Holocaust that any human being can grasp. I believe these items will remind everyone of that awful period of history.
