three documents from and about SS-Standartenführer Hermann Florstedt

He was the third commander of Majdanek concentration camp but charged with corruption and stealing from the Reich (valuables taken from killed KL inmates) and executed by the SS on 15 April 1945. The first document is typed and signed by Florstedt, sent on 29 January 1940 from Buchenwald and addressed to the SS-Hauptamt. He notifies the authorities that he lost his wallet which contained his SS identification, his driver license, his vehicle registration as well as hunting and fishing permit. The receipt of the letter is acknowledged at the bottom with stamps and handwritten entries. The second document, sent by the SS-Führungshauptamt on 25 October 1943 to the SS transport unit in Buchenwald, saying that Florstedt, already put on leave because of his criminal acts stealing in the camps, is temporary transferred to their unit, until he sees the SS judge. It is signed by a SS-Obersturmbannführer we are unable to decipher. The third document, dated 10 November 1943, refers to the second document and states that Florstedt has been transferred to KL Buchenwald by order of Reichsführer-SS because of the corruption in the camps that Florstedt is accused of. It is signed by a SS-Hauptsturmführer Eickemeyer, which could very well be Hans Eickemeyer. A very interesting and unique group of documents about a concentration camp commander who broke the SS code and had to pay the price, right before the end of the war. But he probably would have not lived much longer anyway, if apprehended by the Allies.
