N031372 NSKK MOTOR SCHOOL CERTIFICATE OF APPRENTICESHIP.

BACKGROUND: The development of the NSKK, "National Sozialistisches Kraftfahr Korps" (National Socialist Motor Corps), can be traced back to 1923 when the SA introduced a "Kraftfahr Abteilung" (Motor Section) to transport personnel as required. In 1928 the SA Motor section was expanded to "Kraftfahrstaffeln" (Motor Squadrons). In an attempt to create a national motor corps, the NSAK, "National Sozialistisches Automobil Korps" (National Socialist Automobile Corps), was formed in April 1930 as a NSDAP auxiliary organization subordinate to the SA. In early 1931 Adolf Hühnlein was appointed as chief of the NSAK and proposed the name change to NSKK, which was officially accepted in April 1931. Shortly after the purge of the SA in the "Night of the Long Knives," in June 1934, the NSKK was promoted to an official NSDAP organization, given independent status within the party and absorbed the SA Motor Squadron's personnel. The "Traffic Auxiliary Service" was in essence worked as a highway patrol that was part of the Ordnungspolizei who received police authority on September 7, 1939.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A certificate awarded to Gerhard Wehrm Bogisch from the "Motorschule" of Hansa in Schwerin on "7.10.36" . The certificate is titled "Bescheinigung über die Ausbildung an einer Motorsportschule des NSKK" or "Certificate of Apprenticeship in any Motorsport School of NSKK." A typewritten notation to the bottom translates loosely to "This certificate may be used neither as driver's license nor a political criminal record". A office stamp from the NSKK Motorschule of Hansa is to the direct front with the appropriate signature. Two holes are punched to the left for storage in a binder. It has a heavy horizontal crease to the center as it has been stored folded. Included are two black and white photocopied photographs.
