Passport Portraits of Yesteryear no. 6

Continuing the series of passport photographs from my collection.
Peruse and wonder.

Mrs Michelle Remai and her two children, Helen (8yrs.) and Alexander (10yrs.)
They are Hungarian and she is the wife of a customs inspector.

In March 1938, Hitler brought his armies on the German/Czech frontier to a war footing in preparation for an invasion. It is now September 1938 and Mrs Remai and her children are going to Czechoslovakia for a three week visit. Hitler has just made an aggressive speech in Nuremberg against the Czech president Benes and in response Benes has declared martial law.
