The kurzfristiger ausweis (or short-term ID card) shown below was issued to a member of Adolf Hitler’s personal bodyguard, Untersturmfuhrer Gunther Welter, by the Reichssicherheitsdienst (Reich security service). It gave him authority to enter bezirke II (district II) of the Obersalzberg. This covered all areas around and including the Berghof, but excluded the Kehlstein area, which was besirke III. The outer gates of bezirke II were manned by RSD people when Hitler was on the Obersalzberg. While he was away, it was manned by workmen guards (Arbeiterposten).
