    DDR Passport

    A passport for citizens of the DDR, issued 1986, valid till 1989 for a woman born 1919 in Wien (Austria) and living in Perleberg, DDR, Theresia Bernhöft, geb. Zeißl. There are numerous visa and transit stamps, having travelled relatively frequently to Austria via Czechoslowakia. Older citizens retired were easily able to get visas and travel to other countries (as they were no longer needed), younger people could not travel to non-Warsaw-Pact-Countries** unless they travelled in groups or in an official status, as trusted members of the party. Even they were closely surveilled, and were never "alone" - in case of any escape attempt. ** also known as RGW-Länder - Rat für gegenseitige Wirtschaftshilfe - Engl.: comecon, as opposed to Western Europe with the E.W.G. = Europäische Wirtschafts-Gemeinschaft (now called EU)
  7. Military papers for Unteroffizier Otto Johann Paul Berndt, a soldier in the Leib-Kompagnie, 1. Garde-Regiment-zu-Fuß, Potsdam. A certificate of possession for the Landwehr-Dienstauszeichnung 2.Klasse, dating from 1. April 1910. The award was granted on 16. December 1909 for having fulfilled his military conscription service and his duties with the Landwehr for a period of 9 years. The document only states that he is with the Garde-Infanterie without mention of Regiment and is signed by Gr. von Schauroth, Oberstleutnant in the Bezirkskommando III Berlin and document stamp. The document states that Uffz. Bernd is from Weißensee, which is now a suburb of East Berlin. An example of the decoration is shown in one of the next photos. This type of decoration was awarded till 1913, thereafter, a medal on a blue ribbon. A certificate for the Iron Cross 2. Class to same recipient, who is this time serving with the Königlich Preußisches Garde-Landsturm-Bataillon Wartenburg (G.11). Auf allerhöchsten Befehl Seiner Majestät des Kaisers und Königs hat der Kommandierende General des Beskidenkorps Seine Exzellenz Generalleutnant Hofmann dem Unteroffizier Otto Berndt das Eiserne Kreuz 2. Klasse verliehen, über dessen Besitz vorläufig dieses Zeugnis ausgestellt wird. Im Felde, den 25. Juni 1917 (Signature) Hauptmann und Bataillonsführer The "Beskidenkorps" was the XXXVIII. Reserve-Korps under Generalleutnant Hofmann from 1915 till 1917 on the Eastern Front, previously under General von Eichhorn, later returning to the Western Front and retaining this title. Compared to other documents, the WW1 Iron Cross documents look rather "improvised", unlike the 1870 and WW2 versions, which were fairly standardised. Further documents to follow. Berndt served with the Leib-Kompagnie (1.Komp.) of 1. Garde-Regiment ! An Unteroffizier of the Leib-Kompagnie, 1. Garde Regiment zu Fuss, Immo Freiherr von Gayl, born 1888, photo dated 1906, taken presumably in the gardens of Sans Souci, Potsdam. An aristocrat serving in the ranks, which was not uncommon in the Guards Regiments
  8. Luftwaffe Promotion Document Bestallungs Urkunde for a Feldwebel raised to Oberfeldwebel for Hans Holzner, Flugzeugüberführungs-Geschwader No.1 (Süd), based in Neubiberg near Munich, dated 27.7.1943 and signed by a Major Fachner (?), acting as a regimental commander, signature not quite legible. Document has the old style first pattern Luftwaffe eagle, older stocks of forms were always to be used up in order to save material. The quality of the paper used was not always the best, due to wartime shortages. The Flugzeugüberführungsgeschwader had the task of delivering aircraft to a set destinatiion, especially involving the delivery of new aircraft from the production to an airfield, where required. The recipient of the document could well have been a pilot, or perhaps maintenance personnel. More info on this unusual unit can be found in internet. (8.2.2016)
  9. A wartime letter, dated 22. November 1941 from Alfons in Marienbad (Sudetenland) to his Liesel. Some folds on very lightweight quality paper with a gold embossed Luftwaffe eagle first pattern, has survived in very good condition. Alfons does not seem to enjoy staying in Marienbad, which he claims is very boring and provincial. He was obviously stationed there with the Luftwaffe. Unfortunately no envelope or details of addressee, apart from first names. Obtained some years ago from an address in England, obviously brought there as a souvenir.
  10. Ehrenliste der Deutschen Luftwaffe, 7. September 1942 These were regular bulletins published almost every week. This edition contains exclusively awards for the Deutsches Kreuz in Gold. Other examples will also include other decorations such as the Knights Cross or the Fliegerpokal, etc. These documents have now become scarce and expensive. This example includes at least one well-known name, such as the famous Battle of Britain pilot, Gerhard Barkhorn. At the end of the page is the facsimile signature of Hermann Göring. Unteroffizier Erich Baxmann, Bordfunker in einem Kampfgeschwader Gerhard Barkhorn, Oberleutnant in einem Jagdgeschwader
  11. An award document of the Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg for a soldier in Landwehr-Infanterie-Regiment 85 Unteroffizier Otto Wiegand He received the Hamburger Hanseatenkreuz, one of the very few medals that were awarded by the City of Hamburg, which had a tradition of neither accepting nor awarding wearable decorations, exceptions, see further below (being a City Republic, and not recognising Kings and Princes). One of the exceptions was the Silver Medal for the Hanseatic Legion, 1815, the Bronze Medal for the Firefighters during the Great Fire of 1842 (only for non Hamburg fire-brigades from outside, who helped), and this particular cross, which was only awarded 1915-18. All these certificates were signed by Oberregierungsrat Dr. Siemsen, the award came in a white cardboard case with a silver embossed Hamburg emblem on the lid, now rare. The document is dated Hamburg, 6. January 1916 and signed by Oberregierungsrat Dr. Siemsen. Infanterie-Regiment Herzog von Holstein No. 85 was the parent regiment of the above formation and was based in Kiel, Rendsburg and Neumünster. An example of the decoration. These were manufactured by Fahnen-Fleck in Hamburg 11, a firm, which is still in business. See also previous article under Other nations medals and badges. The list of wearable decorations awarded by the City of Hamburg is relatively small: Kriegsdenkmünze für die Hanseatische Legion, 1815 Medaille für Hilfeleistung beim Stadtbrand, 1842 Silberne Medaille für 25 Jahre im Hamburger Bürgermilitär, 1865-68 Hamburger Hanseatenkreuz, 1915 Kreuz für Treue Dienste, 1916 Silberne Rettungsmedaille, 1918 Ehrenkreuz Hanseatische Vereine vom Roten Kreuz, 1924-1933 A further award was the traditional Portugaleser (non portable medal), originally in gold, and dating from around 1574, today, awarded in bronze or other metals for outstanding service or merit to the city.
  12. An award document for the Königlich Sächsische Friedrich August Medaille in Bronze, on the ribbon for war service for Gefreiter d. Landsturm Erwin Schröter, 7.

  13. An Arbeitsbuch for a glazer in Wien in almost mint condition, has hardly been filled out, as the person was self-employed. Edmund Hávássy, born in Wien, 11. May 1902, had two children. The name is clearly of Hungarian origin. He made his apprenticeship as a glazer from 1916 till 1919, passing his exam on 18.6.1919. His driving licence, Führerschein Kl. 4,4 is entered in the book. The book was issued on 17.10.1940 by the Arbeitsamt Wien-386 A membership book for the DAF - Deutsche Arbeitsfront for Leo Groß, born 1924 in Niemegk (Brandenburg), issued by the D.A.F.

Stamps entered from April 1940 till 16.12.1941, thereafter probably called up for military service.

(1.Brandenburgisches) Nr. 8 in Frankfurt/O. dated 11. April 1913 promoted from Unteroffizier to "Sergeant", signed by Regimental Commander v. Uthmann* (barely legible) * Oberst Paul v.

Infanterie-Regt. 162, which was raised in Summer 1939 in East Prussia. The document was written in Eschweiler in the West in November 1939 and signed by the Divisional Commander Generalleutnant Siegfried Haenicke. The document has unfortunately punch holes and slightly folded, otherwise in top condition. No further information on Tiedtke. Generalleutnant Haenicke bacame a prisoner of war with the Russians in 1945, and was interned in the Russian Sonderlager Mühlenberg in Thüringen, where he died in 1946.

  20. An early example of a Saxon Militär-Pass (in Prussia, Militair-Paß), before these documents were standardised, for a recruit in 8. Compagnie / 6. Königlich Sächsisches Infanterie-Regiment No.105 in Straßburg (Strasbourg). The cover bears the Royal Saxon coat of arms, and a printed XII. Armee=Corps designation which has been neatly changed to XV., as this regiment was stationed in Alsace (XV.Armee-Korps) 6. Infanterie-Regiment No. 105 was raised in 1701 and received it's designation 105 within the German Army in 1867. In 1866 it had fought against Prussia, and against France 1870/71. After the occupation of parts of France in 1871, it moved to it's new base in Straßburg/Elsaß, where it remained till November 1918, returning to Saxony for disbandment and demobilisation. The document was named to Oswald Haupt, born 1852 in Ober-Lungwitz nr. Glauchau, and was an engraver by profession. He was trained to use the Gewehr 71. As from 1.4.1873 he was etatsmäßiger Hornist (officially listed Musician). On 14.Sept.1874, he was promoted to Gefreiter - Gefreiter-Hornist. Later tranferred to the Reserve. As from 18.9.1876, he also served in Grenadier-Regt. 101. Last entries, 14. March 1878. All good conduct, punishments: None.

  21. A document On Command of His Majesty the King - of a bestowal of the Roter Adler Orden, 4th Class upon the stately home owner - Rittergutsbesitzer - Adolph Heinrich Schatz at Marienheim* in the district of Kröben, Berlin 28. August 1882 by the General Ordens-Commission in The Matters of the Royal Prussian Orders, signed by Freiherr von Steinaecker with the matrikel-no. 5669 This document, an oversized double-folio format, is the older version. An example of the older type of decoration of the Red Eagle Order 4th Class is shown. *Marienheim, Kreis Kröben no longer exists since 1945. It was probably in the Provinz of Posen. Very little evidence of it's existence. That goes to show what happens when a past culture is blotted out by invaders. Most stately homes were confiscated, blown up, plowed over and fortgotten by the new population in the postwar years. The owners were either murdered, put into camps, expelled or deported.
  22. A promotion document, oversized double-folio for Hauptmann Hans von Tschischwitz of 3. Rheinischen Infanterie-Regiment No.29 as a Major. There is a large state seal impressed into the document. signed and dated, Berlin, 25. November 1880 with the personal signature of Kaiser Wilhelm I.
