I also visted the hotel where he dined and entertained Goering, Mussolini, etc....I was able to pick up from Hitler's House a wonderful souvenir. It is a large global map of the world. It is like a big round ball. It is similar to the one that the Boghosians have in their home, however, this is written all in German. Inasmuch as I took it from Hitler's House I wouldn't be surprised the thing has been handled by Hitler and Mussolini. I really prize this souvenir. By golly you can put it in the store and tell the customers that this global map came from Hitler's Den in Berchtesgaden". 6) Original period folding map of Berchtesgaden also captured from the Germans. 7) Two period ph

Rare And Important Adolf Hitler Signed War-dated Document

Lot # 1570 (Sale Order: 570 of 651)

Adolf Hitler, Typed document signed, February 12, 1945. The appointment of Supreme Commander and General of the Waffen SS STEINER, Commander General of III Panzer Corps to Commander of the 11th Army. Rare late date signatures of both Hitler and General Burgdorf, Chief of Army Personnel. Complete with raised embossed Reich eagle and original file folder numbered and dated to document. A very rare and important German Third Reich document relating directly to the defense of Germany and the collapse of Hitler and Nazi Germany.
Condition: Excellent.
Notes: Steiner ranks as one of the most innovative commanders of the Waffen-SS. He skillfully commanded the SS-Deutschland Regiment through the invasions of Poland, France and the Low Countries. He was then chosen by Himmler to oversee the creation of, and then command the volunteer SS Division, SS-Division Wiking. In 1943, he was promoted to command of III (Germanic) SS Panzer Corps. On 12 February, 1945, Steiner was formally placed in command of the 11th SS Panzer-Army [by this exact order]. His army was part of Army Group Vistula. On 21 April, during the Battle for Berlin, Steiner was eventually placed in command of Army Detachment Steiner. On 22 April, his sensible refusal to attack the Russians advancing on Berlin resulted in one of Hitler's most infamous outbursts. The Russians outnumbered Steiner's worn out and exhausted unit by no less than 10:1 odds. Imprisoned until 1948, he was cleared of all charges of War Crimes and after writing several apologist works, died on May 12, 1966.

Notes: When the U.S. 3rd Division first captured the "Eagle's Nest" in May, 1945, elements of the U.S. 7th Infantry Division "Cottonbalers", commanded by Colonel John A. Heintges descended on the Berghof and "liberated" a large portion of Hermann Goering's personal wine and liquor collection. Along with the liquor were many boxes of fine imported Cuban cigars bearing the name of the infamous Reichsmarschall. Originally, the U.S. 101st Airborne Division was assigned the task of capturing Hitler's "Eagle Nest" but the tactical position of the U.S. 3rd and 7th Divisions provided them with the first opportunity to grab this prestigious target.
