14 May, 2013

NS-Germany Passport 1944 issued in August 1943 to Ingeborg Bünzel who was a female Waffen-SS member and “Camp leader”, probably of a concentration camp. The document has some interesting entries and stamp and was 3 times renewed by the personal staff office of the Reichsführer-SS which is very unusual! The front-and back cover of the passport are loose and almost all stamps inside had been denazified.

Passports: Political Statements Over Design And Colours (incl. video)

Some Asian nations are objecting to the new design for Chinese passports, which show China’s borders extending into disputed areas.

He spoke to Martin Lloyd, author of The Passport, and to Lord Hannay, a former...
