Palestine Certificate Of Naturalization 1942 Without this document you could not get a British Palestine passport or ID card so it’s related to passport history. To find such a document is unusual I would say. How many Palestinians will still have today such a old Certificate of Naturalization? I guess not many.

Ready for Inspection: An Interview with Valentin Groebner

This interview was first published in the Cabinet magazine in 2006. However the interview and topic is still interesting.
