“Patent” issued by the Pomeranian Commissariat [Present-day Germany; Lithuania, Poland]: “[…] Jews shall not purchase raw cattle-, horse-, or cow-hides, much less export them [because] this kind of trade is only reserved for tanners and cobblers in Pomeranian as well as other cities. Such items purchased in violation of this prohibition are to be intercepted/stopped and reported to the Commissariat; Jews may purchase sheep, mutton, and lamb hides, but they may not export these, but [they must] rather carry [and sell] them only in Further/Eastern Pomeranian (‘Hinterpommern’) cities.” [Researcher’s note: Signed in Stargard, Poland.]
