Owm. Zinser- Legion Condor letter opener & pocket knife
Excellent quality "Toledo" Spanish letter opener and a small pocket knife. Both were bought as a souvenir by Legion Condor Flak Unteroffizier Paul Zensier.

Polizei-Bataillon 315 was responsible for several war crimes and involved in the killing of 18000 Jews in November 1941 near Rowno. It was later involved in anti Partisan combat together with Infanterie-Regiment 102 South of Bobruisk (Unternehmen Bamberg). "Unternehmen Bamberg" started in February 1942 and ended in 1942. Over 3500 people were killed. Paul Zinser was killed during this campaign.
