MARTIN BORMANN
(1900 - 1945?) Head of the Nazi Party Chancellery and private secretary to Adolf Hitler, by the end of World War II Bormann had become second only to Hitler himself in terms of real political power. Important T.L.S. 2pp. legal folio, Munich, Feb. 24, 1939, on official German Work Party letterhead to Reichstag member Gauleiter Josef Burckel in Vienna, regarding the "Law on the Legal Status of Israeli religious communities in the Country of Austria". In part: "...It is...a wish that the Israeli religious communities in Austria no longer comprise a corporate body under the law....I therefore have no objection to the draft of the law. I would advise you, on the following: once the draft of the law is submitted, the Israeli religious communities in Austria must pay income tax....", and more legal content. File holes at left, light wear, boldly signed and in very good condition. Josef Bürckel (1895-1944) was a Nazi politician and early - and influential - member of the NSDAP. In 1938 he was appointed acting head of the Party to carry out the annexation of Austria to Germany and served, from April 1938 - March 1940, to fully integrate the country. A month before this letter, Bürckel was chosen to replace the notorious Gauleiter Odilo Globocnic at the order of Hermann Goering, and worked aggressively within Austria to promote anti-Semitic laws and confiscate property of Jews within Austria.
Estimate $ 800-1,200
