The Military Central Archive- The Military Historical Archive has made available on its website copies of the Wehrpass (military pass) of members of the German Army during World War ll. There are 1160 cards. Over 90% of the owners of the cards were members of the SS, guards in concentration camps. Next to the Soldbuch (military book) the Wehrpass was the second military document. All men subject to conscription were given the Wehrpass after entering the military service, everyone had to have this card with them and prove themselves to them.

 

The holders of the cards were the Germans (including their holders from the Sudetenland) Germans, but also the so-called non-Reich Germans (Volksdeutsche).
