    Default NSDAP Party Member book and SA Ausweis to same man

    Here's a grouping I picked up for an NSDAP party member who was also an SA leader, Willy Kopf. Mr. Kopf apparently reached the rank of Sturmbannführer within the SA, which I believe is equivalent to a Major.

    In the grouping is:

    • His party booklet
    • An SA ausweis in his name, when at the rank of Hauptsturmführer
    • 4 slips of paper I'm told are related to his promotions
    • A wedding photo that I'm not certain is him but it came with it. Not sure what unit the insignia is for...


    I've scanned images of all these items below. The booklet is complete, and any missing pages below are left out to minimize scanning since they were repeats of previous pages without any entries. I wish I knew a lot more German so that I could read the printed information in the booklet. Looks like lots of interesting party related texts are there.

    Hope you all enjoy!

    That's a cool grouping, and in really great shape too...I see a 1942 entry of residence in Krakau with the Generalgouvernement/Poland, where he was promoted to Assistant Financial Administrator for the SA in the Generalgouvernement ...
    The SA Ausweis was issued in Mannheim by the SA Gruppe Kurpfalz...My grandfather was from Mannheim, btw...
    cheers,Glenn

    Thanks Glen! The book is in pretty good shape although the spine is starting to separate. They used the type of binding that employs thread stitching for the binding, which has held it together though and I think it will survive me if it's not handled a lot. Now that I have the scans, I won't need to bring it out to enjoy it which will help.

    That's really cool about your grandfather too. My roots come from Germany too, though I think my relatives came here long enough ago I'm not aware of a family tree to know where from and when. Was your grandfather likely in Mannheim while Willy was there?

    More than likely, yes...but much younger than Willy....The Ausweis was issued in 1939, but Willy was born in 1902 whereas my grandfather wasn't born until 1924, ..In 1942 while Willy was in Krakau Poland, my grandfather was in Denmark and Norway before going to Russia...
    cheers, Glenn
