A VARIETY OF NAZI ARBEITSBÜCHER
(PERMANENT EMPLOYMENT RECORD BOOKS)
FROM VARIOUS THIRD REICH GERMAN
INDUSTRIES, GOVERNMENT BUREAUS, ETC.

Third Reich Arbeitsbücher (Employment Record Books) are by themselves among the commonest Nazi identity documents of the Hitler era in Germany. Collectors have found however, that those Arbeitsbücher associated with famous or notorious people or employers are highly desirable. What better compliment can there be to a magnificent Mauser rifle or Walther pistol than the Arbeitsbuch of one the craftsman that built the weapon? For a historian or collector involved with antique or classic cars from the period, there is no accessory more desirable or more historic than the Arbeitsbuch of one of the workers in the factory that built the machine.

The selection below includes Arbeitsbücher from a variety of individuals employed in Third Reich companies. Each entry contains basic data and a price delivered to any address in the United States. If you have other questions about any of the ID books, please inquire.
