Re: German Democratic Republic Documents.

Here are a trio of documents to Albert Tauchnitz for his 25 Years Membership In The Free German Trade Union Federation and For Faithful And Meritorious 50 and 60 Year Membership To The Trade Unions.

As he was awarded the 60 Years award in 1980 he must have been an early Free Workers' Union of Germany member and continued illegally after January 1933. Given the age and nationality of this man he could well have been a Great War veteran and either have been persecuted by or served for "Greater Germany".

Re: German Democratic Republic Documents.

Firstly is a document to Magda Pautz "For Faithful And Meritorious 40 Year Membership In The Trade Unions" indicating trade unionism since 1947. Second is a pair of documents to Georg Knorr "25 Years Membership In The Free German Trade Union Federation" and "For Faithful And Meritorious 25 Year Membership To The Trade Unions" indicating trade union activity from 1950.

Re: German Democratic Republic Documents.

Firstly we have Hans Beimler's document for 5 honorary titles "Collective Of Socialist Labour" for 1976-1980. Secondly is Ingeborg Penzel's "25 Years Membership In The Free German Trade Union Federation" which would suggest activity beginning very soon after the victory over Germany. Thirdly, Dorothee Koppe's "For Faithful And Meritorious 25 Year Membership In The Trade Unions" suggesting activity beginning in 1963.

Re: German Democratic Republic Documents.

Here we have Karl Görn's "For Faithful And Meritorious 50 Year Membership Of The Trade Unions" indicating activity from 1930 and Alfred Tittelbach's "For Faithful And Meritorious 40 Year Membership To The Trade Unions" from 1965 so they may also have been persecuted for their trade unionism. Thirdly is the document to Major Robert Siegel for the Medal For Faithful Service In The Armed Organs Of The Ministry Of Internal Affairs For 10 Years Service awarded in 1971.

Re: German Democratic Republic Documents.

Finally we have a group to Public Deputy Arno Lehmann of German Railway Construction. The first document, dating from 1962, is a letter of recognition and thanks from DRB. Secondly is a letter of congratulations from Socialist Unity Party Central on the occasion of the 48th anniversary of the October Revolution. Thirdly is 25 Years Membership In The Free German Trade Union Federation.

Re: German Democratic Republic Documents.

Here are a pair of 1st Place awards for the German Gymnastics and Sports Association Sportsfest 1976 (Long Jump 4.1 Metres and Shot Put 7.62 Metres) in the over 50 category. I doubt this is a mediocre achievement. Finally is the document for his Honorary Title ''Activist Of Socialist Labour'' 1978 awarding. With Gratitudes from DRB and Party Central combined with these Sporting awards this really makes this exemplary man look like someone I would employ.
