Adolf Hitler - personal card to Helmut Schreiber ("Kalanag")

Description

Personal card of Adolf Hitler sending best wishes to the magician "Direktor Helmut Schreiber" and wife. Helmut Schreiber (1903 - 1963) was the director of "Bavaria Film" from 1938 and a magician who called himself "Kalanag". Schreiber fostered friendship with Hitler's personal adjutant, SS Gruppenführer Julius Schaub, who sponsored magical events and was a guest at Hitler's "Berghof" at the Obersalzberg. Towards the end of the war, Schreiber mediated between the Allies and wanted SS men, who offered free access to the legendary stolen gold, which is officially largely lost.

Official personal card with embossed printed gold national eagle and "ADOLF HITLER" to the left top corner.

Handwritten text of Adolf Hitler with signature. Ink.

Berlin, den 7. Feb. 1941.

H. Direktor Helmut Schreiber und Frau

Nehmen Sie bitte zum heutigen Tage auch meine herzlichen Glückwünsche entgegen!
