Souvenir coin with a swastika and Star of David owned by a young German Jewish girl

Commemorative coin issued to encourage immigration that belonged to 8 year old Mara Vishniac, a young Jewish girl who left **** Germany with her family in 1938-1940. The coin was struck in 1934 to memorialize the journey of Baron von Mildenstein, a **** party member, to Palestine. The trip resulted in a pro-Zionist report encouraging Jewish emigration, published in the nationalist newspaper, Der Angriff. Mara lived in Berlin with her parents, Roman and Luta, and brother, Wolf. After Hitler's rise to power in 1933, Jews experienced increasingly harsh persecution. Following the Kristallnacht pogrom on November 9-10, 1938, Mara, 12, and her brother, 16, were sent to live with relatives in Riga, Latvia. A few months later, Mara was sent to a home for refugee children in Sweden. In 1940, Mara, her mother, and brother moved to Stockholm and obtained visas to travel to the United States.

Such a sad tale for that family.

But more on the coins

GOEBBELS HAS A SPECIAL COIN MINTED TO CELEBRATE ZIONISM

In 1933 and 1934 The SS Untersturmführer  Leopold Itz von Mildenstein from the SS Office for Jewish Affairs, travelled to Palestine on fact finding missions and he was accompanied on these tours by a number of Zionist officials.   Although his first tour was planned for five months,  v Mildenstein stayed over 6 months.    He became a welcome guest at many Kibbutz Farms.

His PRO-Zionist report,  later printed in the Reichspropaganda Ministry Official magazine ‘ANGRIFF’  with the title   ‘A **** travels to Palestine’ (Ein **** fährt nach Palästina ‘)  was so filled with praise and compliments about the work being done by the German Jewish settlers in Palestine that Goebbels had a special coin minted in honour of the Co-operation. The coin had a Star of David on one side and a Swastika on the other side.  In recognition of this coin, Palestines largest fruit growing firm decorated its Placard Advertising signs for Jaffa Oranges,   with a huge portrait of King David flanked by Swastika flags.
