Description:

Extensive archive of 2 handwritten notebooks and 4 ID books and cards, with 2 dried pressed flowers straight from 1943! All documents belonged to Wilhelm Steinmann, a German Belgian who worked at Aachen West Station. The set of museum quality.


The first notebook covers 1943-1944, the second-1944-1945. Each of the diaries was published in Paris and includes such printed sections as: (1) dictionaries (French-German and German-French) (2) guide to Paris attractions (3) wine recommendations (4) maps of Paris (5) Morse code (6) scientific measurements (7) speed table (8) basics of palmistry (9) tips on graphology (10) first aid section etc. In the first diary, the owner wrote down various distress signals and placed two pressed flowers between the pages. Flowers preserved in pristine condition since the 1940s! In the second diary, there is a list of Steinmann's friends who died. Both notebooks give an idea of the wartime Belgium and France, as well as the life of the German railway worker. Steinmann did not make a huge amount of notes, and there are a lof of blank sheets left in the diaries, but his notebooks deserve attention for their explanations of the various abbreviations at the end of the diaries.


The collection also includes a pair of Hitlerjugend documents: (1) Achievement Record Book/Leistungsbuch and (2) Health Card/Gesundheitpass. The achievement book has a photo and a large number of sheets with recordings. In all, 63 pages. Other documents are: (1) RLB National Air Raid Protection League Mitgliedskarte and (2) 1939 Bescheinigung.


Shipping price depends on destination.
