E+ Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring "Vollzugsmeldung" (Execution Report) Grouping. This incredible grouping includes 4 separate reports each signed off by Göring himself. I recently sent these out to a friend of mine who is a well known document and signature expert who confirmed they are indeed the real thing. He told me that the signatures are not only correct, but the letterhead, paper, type face, and overall nature of the documents themselves make them undeniably original, rare, and very desirable. In fact, it has been suggested that these documents may have been intended for use as damaging evidence against Göring at the Nuremberg trials. In these 4 reports Göring listed the names of numerous Luftwaffe men who were guilty of crimes that included desertion or cowardice. Crimes that were worthy of severe punishment...in most cases death. He also made several references to the conduct of the war i.e. the co-operation of the Luftwaffe with the SS and the Wehrmacht. He made several references to anti-tank units to be set up by the Luftwaffe etc. My friend also pointed out the dates of the Reichsmarschall's orders, being late 1944 to early 1945 it all tallies up, as does the style of the writing of the documents including the type writer itself which is a military issue with the SS runes key! Each of the 4 reports begin with a cover page trimmed in gold with Göring's letterhead, numbered "11, 3, 6, and 8." Report #11 includes 12 pages with Göring's signature and some more illegible scribblings at the end...in Sütterlin Schrift. Reports 3, 6, and 8 are 1 page with information on both sides and Göring's signature on the back of each. And finally one of the nicest parts about this grouping, there are 6 pages of translations in English stapled to the back. I'm not certain who did this, but they are done on an old US made typewriter so I think it's possible these documents were intended for use at the Nuremberg trials. L241

E++ SS Propaganda Manifesto by Standartenführer Bottcher of the Radom District. The proclamation calls for those of German origin (One parent must be German) to report for registration in the German Nationality list. The translation is as follows:
Appeal (Call , Call-up)
In the course of the last centuries German colonists have moved to the east to live on their own homestead, to cultivate the land and form it in a German way. Due to the national politics of Poland and especially due to the economic pressure from the Polish state and the situation in the Reich, these people have felt that they were abandoned and left to stand alone. During the political struggle, which was mainly conducted on the economical and social field, they forgot their ties to Germanhood and the Polish language entered into the life of German families. These German Peoples shall now be reintegrated in the German Volksgemeinschaft (Nation, National community). For this reason, persons who are of German origin and decent and who do not yet have a German identity card, shall report to the German authorities. Every person who can bring proof of at least one German grandparent can be considered to be of German origin and decent. Reporting for registration must be done at the latest until 31.12.1942 to the County Chief with presentation of the appropriate documents. The new organization, which is now conducted by the Reich must allow every person who acknowledges his German decent and is of German origin, to belong to the German Volksgemeinschaft. He can succeed in this by following the call to report himself. The SS and Police Leader Plenipotentiary of the Reichskommisar for the definition of German Nationhood Signed : BöttcherSS Standartenführer

NM Russian SMERSH ID BADGE For Colonel Antonov Jiergiej Konstantinovich. This is his Badge!! Smersh is Russian for "death to spies". Organized in early 1943 for hunting spies, these men stood behind battle lines and shot anyone who tried to retreat....deterrence. In April 1943 the "Smersh" evolved into the NKGB. This ID is 1 of 2 known to exist at this time, and a Colonel who I understand became a General. Most of this unit destroyed their ID's and changed their names. A rough job to have to shoot your own men!! Unbelievable!!! So when I say rare I am serious! I bought this from a close acquaintance, a very sensitive topic, and it made me quite uneasy. L046

NM MIA/POW letter to the parents of Lothar Pittschaft. Translation:

(typed-in text) Dear Mr. Pittschaft,

(form letter printed text) The conclusion of the investigation concerning the fate of

(typed-in text) Your son, Corporal Lothar
P i t t s c h a f t, born 25.8.1920 10th Company, Army Signals Regiment 549

(form letter printed text) who was last deployed in the Stalingrad theatre has brought no complete resolution. He must therefore be considered missing (in action). The Soviet Union refuses to give by name the prisoners they have, even though such behavior contradicts conventions of war. Efforts by international aid societies or neutral states, to change this posture of the Soviet Union, have unfortunately gone without results. News, which circulates concerning the fate of prisoners of war, cannot be controlled and can lead to assumptions which are misleading as well as alarming to the wider community and is put into the world in the form of enemy propaganda to this end. I therefore deeply regret that I am not in the position to bring you a clarifying report and the comfort of certainty.
