Early Ukrainian Passport

Early Ukrainian passport

As for the old Ukrainian passports – unfortunately, I have only one from 1925.  At this time, Ukraine has not been really independent (in contrast to the period 1917-1920), but still issued a passports. This passport is a brief history of the emigration of 18-year old Jewish girl (gray-eyed and red-haired, judging by the photo – very nice) from Ukraine (already – part of USSR) in Canada through Lithuania, Latvia and Germany. Between 1917-1920’s there were some other Ukrainian passports, which were issued by different governments, unfortunately I do not have them in the collection. (Text and pictures for this 1925 passport from our Ukranian collector Yu.S.)
