    Hi Neil, have you wrote to "Opta Radio" as they are still in business under this name?

    LOEWE.

    Mittelwerk was of course involved with the V weapons programme:

    That is, I imagine, a rare ID card. I wonder what happened to the poor guy who worked there?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Very interesting items - I've never seen an "Ausweis" in such good condition.

    I was wondering too. Food for thought.

    Thanks for posting.

    Dear Don and Ade,

    Thanks for the reply. Most work ausweises that I have seen where issued to foreign workers, probably forced laborers?

    Thanks,
    Neil.

    Hi Neil, the German war machine was heavily reliant on foreign forced workers.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi,

    True, some ausweises can come in really bad shape, depending who it was issued to and were it was used. Some can come in very 'excellent' shape, probably ones issued to Germans that had good conditions and lived far from the front, and those who where deported to work for the Germans, well, I have seen such items that already resemble 'toilet paper'...another such ausweis was also in good condition, same Issuing body. All are genuine. Will add some more scans.

    Thanks,
    Neil

    Interesting piece. The concentration camp Mittelbau-Dora provided workers for the Mittelwerk V-2 factory, that was located near Nordhausen. Estimated figures state approximately 20,000 inmates perished, mostly from exhaustion. Mittelbau-Dora was originally part of the Buchenwald camp system, until September 1944 when the SS decided that Mittelbau-Dora be separated from Buchenwald and fall under its own administration - with, its own group of sub-camps. Prisoners initially lived in the tunnels of the Kohnstein, until workers completed the barracks at the camp. Below is the original identity card, belonging to a Czechoslovakian survivor of the camp.

    Regards,

    Currently working on several KZ related projects, including items for the USHMM, Gro-Rosen Museum and various private concerns and studies. Available as a guide to KZ sites, contact for details.
