Above: Emil Maurice, early member of Stosstrupp Hitler, was born on January 19, 1897. From July to August 1923 he was Hitler's driver, and again from February 1925 to January 1928. He shared with him imprisonment at Landsberg. On the eve of Hitler's release on December 20, 1924, Maurice helped him conceal the typescript of Mein Kampf in his gramophone case. Hitler gave him these two WW1 sketches as a souvenir. Maurice testifies to this in a 1969 affidavit, and personally wax-sealed their silver frames. He died in Munich, February 6, 1972
