The power of labels, letters, and marks

On October 5, 1938, the Third Reich directs its Ministry of Interior to invalidate all passports held by Jews until the letter “J” was affixed to them.

 

Less than 80 years later, and on February 8, 2016, the American Congress directs the Department of State to invalidate all passports held by sexual offenders until a “unique identifier” is affixed to them.
