Gauleiter Karl Kaufmann - Period Signature

Period signature of Gauleiter Karl Kaufmann in his position as Reichsstatthalter of Hamburg.

His signature is found on a letter, dated 15 January, 1945, to one Carl Rothig of Hannover, informing him that his (Rothig's) daughter, a teacher, has been killed during an Allied bombing attack of 25 October 1944.

Of note, Kaufmann was a founding member of the Party and long-time supporter of Hitler. He was appointed Gauleiter of Hamburg in 1929, and Reichsstatthalter in 1933. He also held the rank of SS Obergruppenfuehrer.

Tried for war crimes, following the war's end, he was imprisoned but subsequently released due to ill health.
