Hello all,

I own this postcard, can anyone identify who the woman is? It came with another as well.

Great picture of the lady Bill. Is that a 24mm or 30mm Deschler pin on her dress? Source documentation was posted on another forum wherein it was established that only 24mm pins were awarded to female party members qualified for the GPB.

The large white spacing inside the Hakenkreuz arms and their lanky appearance make the badge appear to be a 30mm one.

I think she's wearing a DRK badge, not a GPB. See the Red Cross in the middle of the badge.

found this photo of Margarete Himmler that seems to indicate she also was a holder of the Golden Party Badge. Or are there any alternative interpretations possible like similar Red Cross decorations?

I bet Frau Barnassoi in the first picture is wearing a 24mm by Deschler as the Swastika in the Deschler is a bit wider than in a Fuess and the red coloured enamel is darker than Fuess. Also, the large wide golden wreath just stands out as a Deschler.

Heimatschuss wrote:Hello,

had to return to his thread rather soon to my own surprise after digging through the digital vaults of the Glas Museum in Passau where I came across imagery of another GPB recipient, one Frau Barnassoi from Passau, Lower Bavaria. The site gives her name either as 'Barnasai' or 'Barnassoi' but none of these family names is in the phone books of Germany or Austria. Thanks to Google I found out that 'Barnassoi' is indeed a very rare but existent family name in the Passau region.

All I know about her is that she was the wife of a SS-Oberscharführer (in 1937) who was himself a holder of the GPB.

William,

It's on page 3, about 3 posts down.

PS: Dude, I'm still thinking about Fichtl's. Bob said he didn't remember about BMW, but any mention on Sachse KG or a place called Kempten in Fichtl's files?

I find it interesting the Sister Pia felt that she didn't need to pay party dues after being awarded the Blood Order and Coburg Badge,hence leading to her not being awarded the GPB.

:lol: I read more that he's some kind of bad boy who liked to spy on his co-worker for Mr. Gestapo man. One time, he reported a Frenchman for owning a contraband, a radio and off he went to a KZ. He also did some work related excesses to his employees, but not as brutal as Auschwitz's Höss. It's a 3-digit alright. But, an SA-General is dime a dozen. Hence, my hesitation to pull the trigger for your asking price.

Just flip a page back and you'll see the nice Frau. The poster attached the photo in his post as well.
