    I went to southern California following up on a lead I had received at one of the military shows I set up at twice a year. This was right before the COVID19 and feels now like a lifetime ago. Long story short a got into a former collectors lifetime collection and sadly he had had health complications and passed I never knew him but his very close friend handling the collection was very nice and a collector himself. Anyway I bought a huge range of items to many to list here and most wouldn't be of interest here anyway, but there was some odds and ends of original Third Reich items and in the bottom of a box I just rediscovered yesterday I found all kinds of stuff I didn't know I had apparently I never even looked through this box when I bought it. but I have no idea what this paperwork could be I don't know any German and could really use your help cause I would hate to break something up that belongs together from a historical point. So if you could help a young collector and his mission of keeping history alive.

    Dang I was hoping someone would recognize the type of documents and give even just a little info to begin my journey in researching these. Well thanks for taking a look I appreciate it.

    It is a collection of both post cards and postal forms. Seemingly random at first glance. I noticed some correspondence to the farming/agricultural research lab at the university in Jena, and some correspondence with the pasta and dried bread/cracker factory in Bad Homberg.

    I would separate out the postcards with artwork, interesting postal stamps. The business/agricultural ones are not so commercial. But each to their own.

    Looks like a fair amount of pretty mundane content (not that I can decipher the smaller handwriting well). However, I did notice the postal item addressed to Mr Artur Reich (Herrn Artur Reich), address 12a Marburg/Drau at the VDM Gemeinschaftslager 1, which may have been a forced labor/slave labor camp. VDM is the Vereinigten Deutschen Metallwerke (United German Metal Works) that was an armaments manufacturer that employed both Germans and foreign forced/slave laborers, and Marburg/Drau is Marburg an der Drau that is known today as Maribor in Slovenia. It was annexed by Nazi Germany in 1941 after invasion and was a major industrial and armaments manufacturing center, leading to its bombing and heavy destruction by the Allies.

    If you search the term Gemeinschaftslager on the German Postal History web site numerous examples will come up:

    Hope this is helpful.

    Thank you so much for the lead I will follow up on it. That's one of the best parts of this business you never know where you'll end up. I very much appreciate all of you taking the time to look these items over, it's been a great help.
