BACKGROUND: The "Kennkarte" was the basic identification card in use during the Third Reich era, first introduced in July of 1938. They were normally obtained through a police precinct and had the corresponding issuing office and official’s stamps to them. Every German citizen was issued one, and was expected to produce it when confronted by officials.
