Offered for sale is this original 1943 document, signed by SS-Standartenführer Walter Blume. He was commander and leader of Sonderkommando 7a, part of the extermination commando group Einsatzgruppe B. The unit perpetrated the killings of thousands of Jews in Belarus and Russia. In late 1943 Blume was promoted to SS-Standartenführer and assigned as commander in charge of the Sicherheitspolizei (SiPo, Security Police) in Athens, Greece.
Blume was responsible for the deportation of over 46,000 Greek Jews to Auschwitz. Blume had been personally informed by Reinhard Heydrich that he and the 91 men under his command had a single task: the Judenvernichtungsbefehl (order to exterminate the Jews). Heydrich made it clear that this was on Hitler’s orders. Although imprisoned in 1945 and sentenced to death for war crimes in 1948, his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment in 1951 by the “Peck Panel” and he was released in 1955.
The document that bears his original signature announces the birth of his fourth child and was supposed to be added to his personnel file.
