    The document is the award certificate and translates as:



    "In the name of the Führer and Reichs Chancellor

    In commemoration of the World War 1914/1918 and based on the decree of 13 July 1934,

    Maria Ganser, farmer and innkeeper, Gerichtstetten*

    has been decorated with the

    Honor Cross for Widows

    instituted by Reichs President
    Generalfeldmarschall von Hindenburg.

    Buchen i.O.**), 11th March 1935
    The
    Landrat***)

    [sealed and signed]"



    *) Gerichtstetten is a rural component locality forming part of the town of Hardheim in Baden-Württemberg
    **) = "i.O." = "im Odenwald"; the Odenwald is is a low mountain range stretching into parts of Hesse, Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg
    ***) Landrat = a district's chief executive
