Rare prison correspondence for Jewish family Cohn (documents were together, same last name, so I'm assuming the same family) arrested in Berlin and sent to Plotzensee and Tegel prisons. Many documents, with permits to visit, sentencing, belongings, etc. The most unusual is a certificate assigning a Rabbi to his pastoral care: "Der Rabbiner Joseph versieht weiterhin die seelsorgerische Betreuung fuer hier einsitzende Untersuchungshaeftling mosaischen Glaubens." / "Rabbi Joe continues to provide pastoral care for the understated remand prisoner of the Mosaic faith." Most documents relate to Polly Cohn, but also Martin and Leo. In addition there are a few Litzmanstadt Ghetto unused documents. The date of arrests vs the date of the documents show that they were imprisoned for several years (1937-1940) at least. I didn't find matching names and bithdates in the Holocaust database, so hopefully they somehow survived the war.

Documents for Jewish prisoner Heinz "Israel" Blumenthal, arrested in Berlin and sent to Plotzensee and then Moabit prisons. There are documents from sentencing, incarceration, and transfer, as well as a visit from his wife Margaret. Due to the Nuremberg Laws, all Jewish men had to use "Israel" as their middle name to mark them as Jewish in correspondence, so all documents refer to Mr Blumenthal as Hans "Israel" or H.I.

A Real Photo Postcard (RPPC) photograph of Panzerkampfwagen (PzKfw) aka a tank with Regierungstruppe / Reichswehr / Freikorps in Berlin during the violent Strassenkampf or 'street battles' that took place between the left wing Spartakists / Communists and the center-right (Socialists, Imperialists, and Freikorps in an uneasy alliance) as both sides attempted to seize power. After early Communist victories the Socialist-Right Wing coalition (led by Friedrich Ebert) eventually won. Later, though, many of those same Freikorps soldiers turned on the Republic they helped found, yet despised, and joined the SA, where their street muscle was used by a certain Austrian corporal to propel himself into power.

This combat included the carpet bombing of Guernica, which, in addition to killing scores of people, inspired the anti-war masterpiece by Pablo Picasso.
