Product Description: This Hermann Göring Toy Train SS Inventory List is a unique set of documentation pertaining directly to one of the highest leaders of the Third Reich. This lot was brought back by Major Max R. Wise from the 14th Armored Division, and consists of a set of paperwork glued to blank German documents. One of the documents here is an original inventory of toys belonging to the household of Luftwaffe chief Hermann Göring, presumably the residence known as Carinhall. The inventory list was prepared on June 10, 1943, and updated in August, and was signed in Obersalzburg by an SS-Unterscharführer. There is also a luggage tag with the address of Landhaus Göring, Göring’s country home. There is a wartime leave request, some other small German items, and a permit to remove supplies from the Dachau concentration camp, from the occupation period. There are also other documents pertaining to Major Wise, consisting of leave orders and a cleared restricted station form, from 1945. This small archive with Hermann Göring Toy Train SS Inventory List is extremely interesting. The documents show age, with some small losses to some parts, but remain in excellent condition overall.
Historical Description: In the totalitarian fascist regime of the Third Reich, the traditional German bureaucratic attitude reached an extremely advanced stage. The various military, civil and political offices cranked out a staggering array of paperwork that impacted the lives of every person living under the regime. There were identity documents, of course, as well as travel permits, work permits, and authorizations of every kind. Mail was second in priority only to ammunition in the military supply chains, and exhaustive service records were kept in every unit and for every soldier. An individual might have documents showing membership in various organizations, as well as mundane IDs such as a drivers license, passport, and various other kinds of passes. Award documents certified bestowal of all kinds of badges and medals, and in many cases, for the recipients, possession of the document was more important than having the award itself. Paperwork of the Third Reich is its own massive field of collection and study, and the historical importance of these documents has only increased with the passage of time.
