NAZI PASSPORT ISSUED IN ROTTERDAM 1940
This is an absolutely original, heavily used Deutsches Reich Reisepass or Nazi era German National Passport issued to Matrose Johann Heißwolf at the German Consulate in the Dutch port city of Rotterdam on 23 May 1940, less than two weeks after the aerial bombardment and destruction of central Rotterdam by the Luftwaffe during the German invasion of the Netherlands in World War II. Heißwolf was born in Marktbreit, Germany on 31 July 1911, but his Wohnort or residence is shown as Rotterdam. A red 3-language stamp on the first page of this passport shows why - he was a Rheinschiffer, Rijnschipper paspoort, Passeport de Batelier du Rhin, a sailor on a Rhine river ship.

The 4-3/8 x 6-1/2 inch passport consists of olive green covers bearing the words DEUTSCHES REICH REISEPASS beneath a large eagle and swastika Hoheitszeichen or National Emblem on the front. Stamped through the bottom of the cover and all 32 internal pages is the number of the passport 01426 S39. The 32 internal pages are all printed with a border on a red and green alteration disclosing background.
Matrose Johann Heisswolf
This Nazi passport experienced many trips up and down the Rhine river and is in as-used condition. The original ID photo was removed and probably reused in a new passport issued in 1942, and the spine was taped while in use.

A Nazi passport with this many entries and very rare endorsement stamps is an extremely historical item!

Hedwig Sieberl St. Goarshausen
Deutsches Konsulat Rotterdam 1940
The passport was valid until 22 May 1941 but has many official extension stamps issued by Rotterdam police officials.
Because of the high-security nature of this travels Heißwolf's extensions carried the endorsing stamps of Der Höhere SS und Polizeiführer beim Reichskommissar für die Besetzten Niederlandische Gebiet (Higher SS and Police Leader of the German Commissionar for the Occupied Dutch Territories - see photo left). These stamps are very difficult to find in any Third Reich era passport.

There are many other stamps - border crossings, visas, residency permits, food rationing, etc. Heißwolf crossed the Dutch / German border at Emmerich many times in 1941, but there are also very rare Nazi Wasserschutzpolizei stamps from Strassburg.

Nazi passport eagle and swastika stamp
Rhine River captain's daughter
This is an absolutely original, heavily used Deutsches Reich Reisepass or Nazi era German National Passport issued to Hedwig Sieberl, the daughter of a Rhine River captain. The light blond, grey eyed and slender young lady was born on 23 October 1921 in Weisel and this passport was issued on 12 February 1940 at nearby St. Goarshausen, a small town on the eastern shore of the Rhine River, south of Koblenz, near the legendary Loreley rock.
This 32-page Nazi passport is number 10907 R/39 and page one also has a red Rheinschifferpass stamp on it. It was valid until 11 February 1945. While it contains no border crossing or visa stamps, the last page has a Nazi eagle and swastika stamp from the Mayor's Office in the city of Mainz as well as two food ration stamps from 1942 (Cologne) and 1943 (Mannheim).
This very rare Nazi Reisepass is in very nice condition and still has its original ID photo overstamped with the correct eagle and swastika stamp.
