Typed letter signed, one page, 8,25 x 11,75 inch, Führerhauptquartier, 14.09.1944, file note for P. Friedrichs - concerning `Gauleiter`* Dr. Jury, signed by Martin Bormann in blue indelible pencil "Bormann", with an autograph note by an unknown official to the left edge, with puncher holes and mild signs of wear to the left corners - in fine condition. Accompanied by an English banknote forged by Germans. "RFSS Himmler sagte mir am gestrigen Abend, nach seinen Mitteilungen sei Gauleiter Dr. Jury doch recht krank; vor allen Dingen seien jederzeit erneute Herzanfälle und damit ein Ausfall des Gauleiters möglich. In der jetzigen Zeit sei dies besonders bedenklich, weil ein geeigneter Stellv[ertreter] Gauleiter dem Gau Niederdonau fehle; auch die Kreisleiter des Gaues seien nicht allzu bedeutend. Nach Auffassung RFSS Himmlers ist die Abstellung eines geeigneten Stellv[ertreter] Gauleiters zu Pg. Dr. Jury dringend notwendig." Translated: "RFSS Himmler told me yesterday night that Gauleiter Jury would be really sick; Above all, renewed heart attacks and thus a failure of the Gauleiter are possible at any time. In the present time this is particularly questionable, because a suitable deputy Gauleiter of the Gau Niederdonau is missing; also the district leaders of the Gaues are not too important. In the opinion of RFSS Himmlers the appointment of a suitable representative of the Gauleiter to Pg. Jury is urgently needed." * A Gauleiter was the party leader of a regional branch of the Nazi Party or the head of a Gau or Reichsgau. The word can be singular or plural, depending on its context. Gauleiter was the second highest Nazi Party paramilitary rank, subordinate only to the higher rank Reichsleiter and to the position of Führer. During World War II, the rank of Gauleiter was obtained only by direct appointment from Adolf Hitler.
