I'd like to glean any information from these visa stamps and notes as I can. This is a page from my great-grandfather Henry Jaffe's US passport. I only just noticed Polish visa stamps. I knew he'd visited Mandate Palestine in 1924, after my ggm died in 1923. The passport has visa stamps from Palestine in 1924 and I have passenger records for him sailing from Jaffa in Aug 1924. And records of him remarrying in Philadelphia in 1925. But I have no information of a visit to Poland. Any help will be appreciated.
