Genuine wool armband with a most interesting cufftitle attached indicating a leadership position at a political training camp.

I agree with all the above...a rare and desirable armband...
Only seen a couple of these.. There are period photos I have seen with this in wear....
Thanks everyone for the assessment - I was lucky to acquire the armband.
Very rare armband, but not as for "leadership position at a political training camp", as said in post 2.
Persons as the Oberlagerführer, Lagerführer etc. from the Führungspersonal were active at camps were
(foreign) workers were housed, due to the Arbeitseinsatz in so-called Gemeinschaftslager during the war.
This was arranged and assigned to the Deutsche Arbeitsfront on behalf of the Amt für Arbeitseinsatz der DAF.
In-depth descriptions about what was to be done one can find in "Dienstanweisung für Lagerführer der
Deutschen Arbeitsfront", from 1941 and/or 1943. The functions were described in these regulations!
It is my opinion the golden yellow armband was worn with the political leaders uniform, the black version with the
Werkschar-uniform (as these uniforms were described: Uniform der Politischen Leiter or when available the "bisherigen
blaue Werkscharuniform"). I rate the shown armband as 1941/1942.
