Description

Green card titled, "Konzentrationslager Flossenbürg Ausweis." Includes writing on front and back.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Ausweis Nr. 289 was issued to Elfriede Förster, born May 18, 1919. The text below the date of birth says that she is allowed to carry weapons while on duty in the camp and that all other government authorities are supposed to help her. The document is signed by the commander of the Konzentrations-Lager (KL or concentratrion camp) Flossenbürg who was in the rank of a SS-Obersturmführer. The ID photo has been removed in all probability by Elfriede herself, or her family, in or after 1945 because it was not very advantageous to be recognized as a former guard in a Nazi concentration camp.
