Sarah Schenerir ID

Sarah Schenirer’s 1929 application for a Polish identity card, which includes the only extant photograph of her as well as many details: her parents’ names, her profession (she listed herself as a “private teacher,” perhaps because she lacked official certification), her address, and her physical attributes. Courtesy of the National Archives Krakow; call number STGKR 990, pl. 675.
