N021064 LETTER OF CONDOLENCE. (Schreiben) A typewritten letter of condolence from the office of the "President of the Reich Press Chamber" dated "München 22, den 22.5.1944" addressed to "Mr. Baltes." Expressing "Die Manner Der Presse Werden Ihren Verstorbenen Kameraden Nicht Vergessen" or loosely translated as "The Manner of the Press Will Not Forget Her Dead Comrades." There is also a personal sentiment to the end which translates loosely to "I am sorry you can appreciate the more likely because my oldest son has fallen in battle in east Rudolf as lieutenant of armor." A very nice example, with heavy fold lines due to storage.

"Dear Peter,

This fine letter from Max Amann is indeed a sensitive communication. The 
recipient, Herr Baltes, is assumed to be a publisher or in some way 
connected with the printing or news-reporting business since Amann has 
chosen to use the letterhead of his position as President of the 
National Press Chamber in order to convey trade representative 
condolences to him. Amann expresses his leadership position as he 
states, "The men of the press will not forget their deceased comrades." 
And Amann closes with personal emotion: "I can sense your sorrow all the 
more, since my eldest son Rudolf has fallen in the struggle in the East 
as a lieutenant in the armored troops."

Warmest best wishes,


James, thank you. Peter
