Third Reich Courier Travels The World On Diplomatic Passport

Here comes a second travel document of Herrmann Saam, this time a nicely traveled diplomatic passport 1940 with plenty of South American visas and stamp, including JAPAN and MANCHUKUO. Now you already can say WOW! But wait, there is more. This document set has everything. Further there are five flight tickets, a large photo which show him and the complete crew of the GRAF ZEPPELIN AIRSHIP in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Two internment camp magazines from the time when Saam was briefly in a soviet internment camp. The first-hand stories are exciting and describing the closing of the German embassy in Moscow, where Saam previously worked as diplomatic courier and life in the camp and finally return to Berlin, Germany by train. Awesome!

But the best is the extensive and large, in several languages, diplomatic courier letter (ID) which has several stamps from embassies and handwritten entries. The document was issued by the German foreign office and served, additional to his diplomatic passport, as safe guard on his extensive trip. Another further document describes the air ticketing by an agent with LUFTHANSA. Finally, there is a Brazilian newspaper from 1941 describing the war in Asia. What a fantastic set!

According the documents his traveling route was ROME – RIO DE JANEIRO – ASUNCION – BUENOS AIRES – SANTIAGO – LA PAZ – LIMA – QUITO – BOGOTÁ – CARACAS – PANAMÁ – GUATEMALA – MÉXICO – HAVANA – WASHINGTON.

Here are some pictures, not all pages are shown of the diplomatic courier letter and the camp magazines…
