Polgari Szemelyi lap - "Civil Identity Card" - Three Hungarian identity cards from Subotica under Nazi occupation. In each certificate after personal details - name, place and date of birth - is a square stating in print: "According to legal definition, is this person considered Jewish", leaving a blank for "Yes" or "No" (marked as "No" in these three documents). Nazi Occupied Yugoslavia, 1943-1942.
In April 1941 the Kingdom of Yugoslavia was occupied by Nazi Germany and Subotica was annexed to Hungary. A 1941 census found 3,459 Jews lived in Subotica. Upon occupation, Germans immediately enforced Nuremberg Laws defining a Jew as one with at least three Jewish grandparents by race. Also considered Jewish was a half-Jew, citizen with two Jewish grandparents, and anyone belonging to a Jewish community at the time or later accepted. Occupied Yugoslav citizens were asked to obtain new identity card , where the section "According to legal definition, is this person considered Jewish" referred to the application of the Nuremberg Laws. Before us are the identity cards of Sabo Lauder, Lot Malverdi, and Gregoire Burker. Two from Subotica and one from Novi Sad.
