Thirty-two year old Johann Bernhardt Hornik of Kattowitz was drafted into Nazi Infantry Replacement Battalion 483 in May 1942, and transferred to a Feldsonderbattalion (Special Field Battalion - Dentistry) on 20 June 1942. He was sent to France as a dentist. Immediately after the Allied invasion in Normandy, on 8 June 1944, at Chaumont north of Dijon in France he was re-assigned to Feldstrafgefangenen-Abteilung 14 (Prisoner of War Detachment 14), becoming a caretaker for captured Allied prisoners.
Johann Hornik was born on 30 April 1910 in Kattowitz which was then a large industrial city in the Prussian province of Silesia (it is now called Katowice and is in Poland, just north of Auschwitz). He was a dentist, a catholic, and on 21 August 1938 he married a woman named Helene. Hornik spoke Polish, and according to information on the Beurteilung or rating letter (shown below) dated 8 February 1944, he was dependable, had an honest character, was a praiseworthy dentist, but only a 'satisfactory' guard.
This Wehrpass is 100% original to the Third Reich period, no entries have been messed with and it has never even been shown at a militaria show. Very good condition with two Third Reich attachments folded up inside the front cover.
