Description: Official sign produced by the Budapest Metropolitan Council from June 1944 which, by decree, had to be displayed outside every non-Jewish apartment in a yellow-star house.
Long Description: Excerpt from the Budapest mayoral decree no. 148.451/1944-IX, June 24, 1944, published in Budapesti Közlöny [Budapest Bulletin], no. 141.
"Those non-Jews who do not wish to vacate a designated Jewish house must display, at the entrance to their apartment, the official “No Jews live here” notice with the City Hall stamp.
Caretakers or others responsible for the houses [...] must, under punishment by criminal law, compile details of all apartments in which non-Jews live, and which will be signed by each non-Jewish tenant to the effect that none are required to wear the yellow star, and which is to be submitted to that district’s tax authority for approval, then displayed publicly in the house.
The house owner or caretaker must constantly ensure that no Jews display the “No Jews live here” sign, which must be reported to the police."
