SOLD

Historic grouping from the office of Dr. Benno Martin, who was not only the Police President there but also Gestapo Chief and SS-General as well. He had a long running feud with his Gauleiter Julius Streicher and, along with Willy Leibel and others, was able to have him eventually removed.

Grouping actually includes both German and English-translated Allied interrogations with him after the war and centers a lot of Streicher, their feud and of course the Jews. (at least 200-pages total)

The over 100 original document lot are all documents from his office and many are signed by high-ranking members of various posts. (There are some from Himmler but these are facsimile signatures already printed on the document). There are also other SS documents from various departments signed in ink from various high-ranking SS members including Oswald Pohl, also Police documents and other misc documents, and some documents signed by Benno himself. Look at the photos closely- this is a goldmine of both interesting historic material from various Reich departments and assorted signatures- !

Someone more into the SS or perhaps signatures or such could probably break this lot up much more effectively and sell a good portion of them (1/2 to 2/3 of them) , individually and make a handsome profit That is just way too labor intensive for us and so we have priced the lot very cheaply (less than $6 per document-!! Many are $40-50 each, lesser ones $15-30) in order to pass it on to another dealer or enterprising collector.
