Pictured Above: An April 28, 1938, business post card from a formerly Jewish theatrical firm in Vienna. “Arisiert” stamped below the name of the firm indicates that the business had been “Aryanized.”
The metered postage imprint on the card is denominated in Austrian currency at the correct 9-groschen 1.5 to 1 rate during the transition. The boxed “Jahresgebühr” handstamp on the envelope indicates that the Gestapo’s postage was paid annually.
