Very comprehensive document grouping to SS-Hauptsturmführer Hans Lörner coming from his widow originally. 
NSDAP number 2541670. SS number 94275.
The grouping contains interesting signatures of high ranking SS leaders. Lörner started as a young SS-Sturmmann and was promoted up to an SS-Hauptsturmführer during the war. Lörner was born on 28.3.1915 and committed suicide on 7.5.1945 or 8.5.1945 to avoid Russian captivity.
Lörner started as a policeman with the "Bayerischen Landespolizei. He served as a member of I./68.Standarte and with SS-Standarte "Deutschland". He joined the NSDP in 1933 serving with SS-Standarte "Deutschland" and served with SS-Division "Das Reich" during WW2.
The grouping contains all documents you can think of.  Starting with his NSDAP membership card and his very first serving contract "Dienstvertrag" and his "Verpflichtungsschein". A document on his "Austritt aus einer Religionsgemeinschaft", promotion documents, award documents and a lot more!
