This is my permanent pass, issued in Budapest in 1944. In October 1942 I had to go in for forced labor. I got to Kilyen, which is close to Sepsiszentgyorgy. From Kilyen we had to go to the post office in Sepsiszentgyorgy. Originally a buck sergeant went to the post office to pick up the letters and packages. And there was a farmer with a carriage who helped with the packages. The captaincy wasn't really satisfied with the buck sergeant's intelligence, and they wanted someone to go with him, who could read what had to be read and could count the remittance. I became this attendant. This is how the thing started up, but after a while the captain realized that I didn't need any attendant. So he issued me this clearance pass for these places.
