File is the original taken from a police station by someone at the end of World War Two. The file is on one Erich Stock who was born September 28, 1905 and who lived in an area southwest of Hanover, Germany.

File has over 100 entries dating from 1938 to 1945. Stock was himself a police officer and his file shows he was plagued by personal issues throughout his service. Within the file are excessive requests for leave and questions about missing inventory. Also present in the file are letters from Stock defending himself. The file shows Stock was a Mayor as well as a jailed prisoner prior to induction into the military. The Police Security check in the file says he is unsuitable for the position he held.

The file shows that Stock received Air Raid Warden training after which he writes a letter to his superiors patting himself on the back and asking for a promotion which he does not get. He then asks for a transfer which he does receive.

Also in the file are Stock’s Racial Purity Form and his Oath of Allegiance. Some swastikas on government stampings have been blotted out. This was done after the war when Allied inspectors went through these files looking for criminal activity.

This file, uncommon today, is in excellent condition and conforms 100% to the size and construction of the Personal Files commonly kept in Nazi Germany. The exterior of the file is 9.75 x 12.25 inches and is made of gray card stock with a metal hanger. A dark gray linen tab protrudes from the lower left corner of the file and is printed with Stock’s name in the accepted fashion of the time.

The first pages are an index with all entries numbered in the order that they are mounted into the file. All subsequent pages are numbered in the upper right corner in red and correspond to the index.

Eric Stock was assigned to the Air Raid Decontamination Department in Peine from 1940-1944. He broke his right arm in an automobile accident in March of 1942 which is mentioned in his medical report. He was a member of the SHD or Security and Emergency Service with the rank of Truppman. On October 2, 1943 stock was appointed a Rottwachmeister in the Air Raid Police and successfully passed his training.

Records show that Stock served through at least three air raids on Hanover in September of 1943. Later, in July of 1944 he was arrested and given 7 days in jail.

The last entry advises that Stock had received his SS Soldier Book (identity and pay booklet.) All Police came under the jurisdiction of Himmler’s SS but this did not make them members of the SS.

A very interesting and seldom seen item.  [ad]
