Description Information
   [14] p., 8vo., 173:108 mm., light browning. With the stamp of the “Portugeesch Israelitische Gemeente Amsterdam”
   Jewish calendar for the Portuguese community of Amsterdam.

This crudely-printed calendar testifies to the fortitude of the Dutch Jewish community which had been living under German occupation since 1940. Most Jews were deported to Auschwitz and Sobibor shortly after it was printed. A list of the leaders and rabbis of the Portuguese community appears on p. 14.
