Hi, Mimi,
It seems to me that your story that, my good old friend Salo Reifer, your
late father, exchanged a Popovici permit with a Calotescu permit is not
correct. He used to tell me that he had a Popovici permit and never
mentioned anything about an exchange, which was considered, at that time, as
a downgrading of the value of a Calotescu permit. However, the story
regarding the list of the 72 Jews seems to me as plausible and correct; we
knew about such cases and that's apparently the reason why you were not
deported to Transnistria and were permitted to stay in Cz. until March 1944.
My father had a Calotescu Autorizatzie and all Jews who had such Calotescu
Autorizatzie remained in Cz. until March 1944. I never heard that anybody
was asked to exchange a Calotescu permit to a Popovici; the other way
round - perhaps.
Regards, Avraham K.
