GIVEN TO SOMEBODY BY THE CITY OF BERLIN WHO MIGHT HAVE HELPED AFTER AN ALLIED BOMBING RAID?!

The 2-1/4 inch or 60mm diameter iron medal must have been given to some individual that did some extraordinary help or rescue work for his fellow Berlin coinhabitants in the late stages of World War Two. The medal says on the front that it was given for aid in tough wartimes which means that it was probably an award that was not given before 1943 when the allied bombings of Berlin started to intensify. On the back it says: "Edel sei der Mensch - hilfreich und gut", an ancient quote saying that mankind shall be honorable, helpful and kind.
