Luftwaffe Erholungsheim Grand-Hotel Alassio
The empty 4 x 5-3/4 inch Third Reich envelope we offer here once contained a letter that was sent by a Nazi Air Force Unteroffizier from the Luftwaffe Erholungsheim (Luftwaffe Convalescent Home) in the Grand-Hotel Alassio. Alassio is a resort town on the Mediterranean coast between Monaco and Genoa and the Grand-Hotel located right on the Mediterranean Sea had been turned into a recuperation facility for Luftwaffe personnel.

Grand Hotel Alassio
The envelope no longer contains the letter the Luftwaffe Unteroffizier sent to a Fraulein in Niederdonau but it has two Munich Capital of the Movement swastika cancelations dated 26 October 1942 as the Feldpost from this Luftwaffe post was processed in München.
Note the Luftwaffe Erholungsheim Grand-Hotel Alassio had its own rubber stamp complete with the Nazi eagle and swastika emblem in the middle!

SS and Nazi Police at the Front
Nazi German Police


On 6 April 1941, Nazi Germany, Italy and Hungary invaded Yugoslavia and the country was 'trisected'. The Third Reich annexed Slovenian Styria, Upper Carniola, Slovenian Carinthia, and the Lower Sava Valley. Italy annexed southeast Slovenia with Ljubljana, and Hungary annexed Prekmurje. The Bulgarian army moved in on 19 April 1941, occupying parts of Macedonia and some districts of eastern Serbia.

After its annexation, Lower Styria in Slovenia was called Untersteiermark. Dr. Siegfried Uiberreither, already the NSDAP Gauleiter and Reichsstatthalter of Steiermark (Styria) became the Chief of the Civil Administration of Untersteiermark. In Lower Styria the commander of the Nazi security police and SS security service was in charge of local law enforcement during the first year (a civil judiciary organization, as the first stage in the establishment of a regular judiciary, did not start work until the spring of 1942).
A policy of strict Germanization was introduced in Untersteiermark. Public use of Slovene language was prohibited and all Slovene associations were dissolved. Members of all Slovene professional and intellectual groups, including many clergymen, were expelled. Between April 1941 and May 1942, around 80,000 Slovenes (almost 15% of the overall population) were expelled from Untersteiermark, or resettled to other parts of the German Reich.
As a result, a resistance movement developed and there was fierce fighting between German troops and Slovene partisan units in Untersteiermark, especially those who were Communists and affiliated with Marshal 'Tito'.

For sale on this USMBOOKS web page is a 3-¼ x 5-½ inch deckle edge Nazi postcard showing the railway station in the town of Zagorje ob Savi in central Slovenia (the railway station is still there today and looks the same). The town is called Sagor in German and is located on the Save river 32 miles east of Ljubljana.

The card was sent by Polizei Rottenführer Hefner of Reserve-Polizei-Bataillon 72/2 to his wife Therese Hefner in Munich by SS-Feldpost on 20 April 1942. Reserve Police Battalion 72 was formed in the München area and was sent to Slovenia to fight the local partisans as part of a military formation of the Nazi Ordnungspolizei (Orpo or Order Police). It was part of "Polizei-Regiment Endler" and was heavily involved in fighting and eradicating resistance. Such police battalions gained further notoriety in their work in conjunction with SS Einsatzgruppen in the extermination of Jews and Communist partisans in both Poland and in the Soviet Union after the German invasion of the USSSR in 1941.

Very rare, in very good condition and 100% original to the Third Reich period.
