Hitler’s Fake Passport, April 1941

This fake passport for Adolf Hitler was made by the Special Operations Executive (SOE). The work of this group was to organise resistance in countries taken over by the Germans during the Second World War. They’ve given Hitler’s passport a red ‘J’ (which stood for ‘Jew’ on a German passport). He has a visa allowing his entry into Palestine, which was under British control at that time. The passport also describes Hitler’s occupation as a ‘painter’. Under distinguishing features, they list his ‘little moustache’.’ – National Archives
