Herbert Natter, Sankt Lorenzen am Wechsel, Steiermark
Nazi questionnaire 1938
His rank in the Oesterreichische Legion was Scharführer and when he filled out this Nazi form he expressed an interest in working in a shop or warehouse of the Reichsnährstand.
These Fragebogen formed a very comprehensive human resources file for the Nazi Party in Austria after the Anschluß and the information provided was thoroughly checked by the Gestapo. The Nazis could easily fill jobs in their hierarchy in Austria with reliable, experienced Austrians whom they could call home from abroad. Surviving examples are extremely rare. This one is complete with the original ID photo of Herbert Natter wearing his SA Nazi uniform with the SA Sportabzeichen.
