THIRD REICH ID'S & DOCUMENTS
Germany has a long tradition of bureaucracy, everything has to be accurately documented, stamped, filed and organized. The National Socialists perfected this system and created a complex identity documents system that has no match anywhere else in the world. Every organization, sports club, hobby group or what ever else it might have been where a number of people with the same interests met created an identity document, some with, some without photo. In one way or another they were all somehow affiliated to the Nazi party, attended meetings were recorded in these documents, paid fees were documented, work or military history/career, virtually everything. Often several ID documents were linked together and the entries in each document had to match with the other ID documents. Identity documents, permits and authorization documents were so complex that it was nearly impossible for the Allies to fake them to infiltrate somebody into Nazi Germany. If the "papers were not in order", meaning a stamp or entry missing, the mission would have been over at the first German checkpoint! The system of identity documents in Nazi Germany is hard to understand, especially for Americans, who basically only need to have their drivers license and a credit card in their wallet while the ordinary fellow (Aryan) Volksgenosse in Hitler-Germany easily carried 6-10 ID documents. Offered here is a variety of original Third Reich ID documents. We have more than one of some of the items, in this case the item shown may be for reference only, condition and entries may vary.
