FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE FOR AUTHENTICITY
SS-Hauptsturmführer LUDWIG STUMPFEGGER at times filled in for Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler’s personal physician and worked as the assistant doctor under Professor Karl Gebhardt (see item C-882) in the Hohenlychen sanatorium. From September 1944 on became the second personal physician of Adolf Hitler, behind Theodor Morell. He was Adolf Hitler’s personal surgeon from 1944 to 1945 and was present in the Führerbunker in Berlin in late April 1945.
By 29 April 1945, Stumpfegger had distributed brass-cased prussic acid capsules to any military adjutants, secretaries, and staff in the bunker who wished to kill themselves rather than be captured. Some sources report that, as the Red Army advanced towards the bunker complex, Stumpfegger helped Magda Goebbels kill her children as they slept, before she and her husband Joseph Goebbels committed suicide on 1 May.
On 30 April 1945, just before committing suicide, Hitler signed an order allowing bunker personnel to attempt to escape the approaching enemy forces. On 1 May, Stumpfegger left the bunker with a group that included Martin Bormann, Werner Naumann and Hitler Youth leader Artur Axmann. At the Weidendammer Bridge, a Tiger tank spearheaded the first attempt by the Germans to cross the bridge, but the tank was hit and Bormann and Stumpfegger were “knocked over”. On the third attempt, made around 01:00, the group was able to cross the Spree. Bormann, Stumpfegger, and Axmann walked along railroad tracks to Lehrter station, where Axmann decided to go alone in the opposite direction of the other two men, but he encountered a Red Army patrol and doubled back. Axmann saw two bodies, which he later identified as Bormann and Stumpfegger, on a bridge near the railway switching yard, the moonlight clearly illuminating their faces. He did not have time to determine what had killed them. [source: Wikipedia]
The document, dated 15 March 1940, is addressed to the SS military hospital in Berlin (Hohenlychen) to which Stumpfegger asks to get transferred.
