The item featured here is an official work book as employed by Nazi Germany during WWII. The government required everyone to have documentation to move about the country and the city. This was a very effective way to control the population. Every move was recorded.

The Arbeitsbuch was one of those documents. It was required to prove that the individual had a job. Therefore, the need to be in a particular part of town.

The design of the document consisted of a cardboard cover. Dark brown, featuring an eagle with its wings fully extended. The talons are clutching a wreath with a swastika in the center. Containing multiple pages with hand-written entries.

Every WWII German ID would have a unique serial number. As can be seen in the photo below.
