Product category: 

Well know politican after war. Ultra rare and super scarce letter type inmate letter sent from KL Dachau in 1936! These models are really difficult to come across, and in this excellent condition more! If we look at the writting we see it's also beautiful, and it also has the censorship stamp from Dachau only unfortunate missing envelope. Letter come from famouse man Georg Schenk.Georg Schenk (born June 25, 1901 in Lechbruck, † March 15, 1992 in Burghausen) was a German politician (SPD). From 1947 to 1953 he was a representative of the unions in the Bavarian Senate. From 1948 to 1966 he was the 1st mayor of the city of Burghausen.Schenk grew up in the Allgau and earned his living in agriculture as a boy. In 1915 he came to Augsburg and began a four-year apprenticeship as a locksmith. At the same time, he attended the technical school and continued his education in evening courses. After the journeyman's examination, he initially stayed in Augsburg. In November 1920, however, he moved to Burghausen and started working as a locksmith in the Dr. Alexander Wacker works. Schenk, who had been a member of the German Metalworkers' Association since 1917, was elected chairman of the works council of the chemical plant in 1928. After the National Socialists seized power, he was released. In the following years he was taken into "protective custody" several times and finally interned on December 20, 1935 in the Dachau concentration camp for 15 months. He only received rehabilitation after the war. In 1945 he returned to the service of Wacker-Werke and was re-elected as the Chairman of the Works Council at the first election.Political careerIn 1924, seven years after joining the German Metalworkers' Association, Schenk became a member of the SPD and shortly thereafter also chairman of the Black, Red and Gold Reich banner. After his rehabilitation, he was elected to the Burghausen city council, the district council of the Altötting district and the 2nd mayor of the city of Burghausen in the first municipal elections after the end of the Second World War in 1946. Two years later he moved to the top of the city administration and remained until May 1961. When the Bavarian Senate was founded, Schenk was appointed Senator as a representative of the trade unions through his membership in IG Chemie, Papier, Keramik. He was a member of the Chamber until December 31, 1953. It was only from the beginning of the 1970s that he retired from his public office. In 1972, after 26 years of membership, he no longer ran for a mandate in the Burghausen city council, and in 1982 he finally gave up his district council mandate.What else we can ask? A great chance to get such a rarity!
