    What do you say about this? Real or not?

    First image is the front of the document. Second image is the same image flipped to see if anyone can read some of what is written in the back.

    I know what it is, I want to hear from people who know more than me. BTW, this is a copy of the original that was made for translation purposes.

    Do you care if I call a buddy and get him down here?

    He will know everything about this.

    Rick will pay $50 for it. That's the best he can do. It's probably worth millions.

    Adolf in power as Chancellor, elected to rid Germany of Communists who happened to be Jews or Jews who happened to be Communists? (but most of the troublemakers came from Russia) pre Night of the Long Knives.

    Interesting times...

    Definitely an important moment in modern history. It wasn't interesting for all those the Nazis persecuted.

    Looks like Hitlers public appearance tour rider. Only green M&Ms in the bowl, white carnations, Dasanti bottled water. That kinda stuff. Am I right?

    Not a WWII expert, but January 30, 1933, the day Hitler became German Chancellor, was over 6 years before WWII began on September 1, 1939.

    I think you are right. I heard about a tee shirt that was done like rock and roll merch.

    Google "Adolf Hitler European Tour tee shirt". Very poor taste....




    But funny.

    The signature on the reverse looks to be Paul von Hindenburg’s, which makes sense as he was president in 1933.

    It's a major event leading to WWII. I assume most that are WWII experts will know more about this as well.

    The text, through Google translate, says, “In front of me, the President of the Reich, the members reappeared today to the Reich Government, in fact” and then lists the members. To me, this looks like part of a larger, multi-page document. I suspect the “15” at the top may be a page number.

    The 30th of January, 1933 was the day that von Hindenburg appointed Hitler as chancellor. The rest of the pages would be interesting to see.

    As far as whether or not the page is real, I have to think that Hitler’s appointment, and the appearance of his inner circle before the president, was documented so, historically at least, it makes sense to me.

    It continues on the back and ends with Hindenburgs signature.

    Okay, then, your second picture is a reverse image of the first, not the back. I saw von Hindenburg’s signature as bleed-through from the back page.
