Solomon Vecsler's certificate for being held hostage

This is a certificate issued by the Jewish community in 1946 in Botosani, which says that they certify that Solomon Vecsler, my husband, was held hostage in the year of 1942 at the request of the Territorial Police of Botosani. Being held hostage was something that was done back in 1942, when things were very troubled. Jewish people, especially men, were kept hostage, not for long, just a few days, as a guarantee that no uprisings or disorders would occur. This certificate was issued to serve him for the Ministry of Health, I don?t remember what for.
