N007178 TeNo I.D. CARD. (Technisch Nothilfe Ausweis)

BACKGROUND: TeNo, Technischen Nothilfe (Technical Emergency Corps), was originally established in September 1919, of trained, voluntary, civilian personnel to maintain and repair essential services in the event of a natural disaster or emergency. Many of its personnel were ex-service men, and a large amount of them had some type of specialized technical training which was key to its mandate. TeNo was a civilian organization administered under the Minister of the Interior, until mid-1939, when it became an official State organization under control of the Police, which in turn was controlled by the SS. With this change in status a small nucleus of salaried officials were employed to run the organization. As the war dragged on, TeNo became increasingly a para-military organization with its direction becoming more controlled by the Waffen-SS.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A 7.5cm 10.5cm bi-fold ID card issued for 1934 and numbered for "5511" to "Walter Soherb" of Hamburg. A small black and white photograph is to the interior. The card measures approximately 15cm long when opened.
