A copy of a message from Kreis II to Franz explaining that donations were pooled together for Franz to get a haircut and shave, since he does not have the financial means. Most likely, Franz is Jewish, in which case it goes his religious beliefs to shave his beard. It was common for Nazis to publicly cut the beards of Jews in order to punish and humilate them. It was also a common stereotype in Germany and Europe that Jews were cheap, and so the letter mockingly offers to pay for his haircut. Above this message is perhaps a poem or song insulting the district’s vicar and several of its female members who are either Jewish or do not support the Nazi’s cause. This letter is a form of humiliation and intimidation, not uncommon at the onset of the Second World War.

This book is the autobiography of General Hermann-Bernhard Ramcke, a general of the German Second Parachute Division in the Second World War. He was a decorated Nazi-General who eventually went to prison for his war crimes, only to escape seven years later as an extremist National Socialist. The book follows his journey from being a ship’s boy when he joined the German Imperial Army in 1905 to his transition to the Reichswehr during the Weimar Republic period. He continued to serve in the new Wehrmacht during the Third Reich, where he received the most accolades. The book was published in 1943 by the Verlag Die Wehrmacht publishers in Berlin. This book was part of Anton Karl’s personal library during his service in the German military during the Second World War.
