Hitler’s Passport faked

An unusual German passport from April 1941. The red 'J' represented 'Jew' and often proved to be a death warrant when stamped on a genuine passport.

A passport signed by Adolf Hitler on 30th April 1941. This was a demonstration of the skills of the forgery section of the Special Operations Executive who were responsible for running agents in occupied Europe. They were to develop huge expertise in the creation of a wide range of fake documentation used for personal identification. After the war Gestapo documents were found that described the quality of forged documents discovered on captured agents as ‘excellent’.
