Safe Conduct / Passierschein, ZG 37, 1944
Genuine WWII safe-conduct document, edited by the SHAEF and intended for German troops wishing to surrender. The main text is written in both English and German, thus informing both parties that any German soldier carrying this safe-conduct pass shall be treated according to the laws of war; the reverse features a longer German text informing the soon-to-be prisoner of war of his future detention conditions.
Numbered ZG 37, the present sheet was air-dropped from August to September 1944. Excellent condition. Dimensions: 5.1in x 7.8in.
