Certificate letter sent from KL Mauthausen Kommandantur to the KriPo central office in Nürnberg-Fürth certifying that the prisoner Franz Schmidt was transferred to the prison for remand prisoners in Nürnberg in 25. January 1940 from KL Mauthausen. This was done with all prisoners that arrived in camps or were transferred to other camps or prisons to control the situation of all of them. This one is written used nice original stationery from camp. In this case, what makes this document very special is the fact that it's hand signed by the infamous KL Mauthausen Kommandant Franz Ziereis! A very rare to find signature from a war criminal!Franz Xaver Ziereis (13 August 1905 – 24 May 1945) was the commandant of the Mauthausen concentration camp from 1939 until the camp was liberated by the American forces in 1945.
