    Are you sure it's Yiddish? Looks like written from left to right.

    This doesn't look like Yiddish.
    This looks like it is written in cursive Cyrillic alphabet. This may be Yiddish, but not written with the Hebrew alphabet...

    It can also be Armenian.

    It's definitely not written in Cyrillic. I wouldn't entirely rule out that it is written in Latin script. Could be Polish or Lusatian if it is from Silesia.

    It looks like written in Kurrentschrift. One word looks like "nicht".

    Can you decipher it? The last word looks like "berechtigt".

    That would make sense.

    So we have "XXX berechtigt" and "nicht XXX berechtigt."

    It is German.
