GOTTLOB BERGER
(1896 - 1975) SS Obergruppenfuhrer, Chief of Staff for the Waffen-SS and head of the SS Main Office, tried for POW death marches and convicted in 1949 for his role in the genocide of European Jews and sentenced to 25 years in prison. His sentence was mitigated by the fact that he aided prominent prisoners to escape. T.L.S. on his official letterhead, 1p. oblong 8vo., Berlin, Dec. 7, 1943 to Reichsleiter Philipp Bouhler, who headed Hitler's euthanasia program. Berger expresses his best wishes for the holiday, adding his hopes that the rigors of war would bind their fellow National Socialists more closely together. Very good.
Estimate $ 300-400
