Whether it was a mrmber of a political organization, the Armed forces, Hitler Youth, RAD, a plain civlian, etc. (See how the towns were organized). The Third Reich wanted absolute control over the individual. One way in which they exercised this was by developing ID cards and documentation that contained the person's personal information and tracked where the peson had been and where he or she could go. As a result there are a large number of WWII German documents that can be collected. This part of the website outlines onr of the documents.

This is a German WWII identification card which was issued to female members of the Hitler Youth. Printed in card stock. The design consists of a four part foldout. One section contains the photo of the person which has been stapled in place and has two ink seals applied to opposite corners.

Collecting Third Reich documents, ID books, pay books, etc. is a field that has been growing since the days the GI's rummaged around Europe bringing back military souvenirs. German and civilians had to carry documentation and ID's at all times. Once the person was captured, the American soldiers would take the documents as war trophies. Eventually all these pieces came back to the United States where military history enthusiasts began to collect them.
