PHILIPP BOUHLER (1889-1945) Nazi Reichleiter and the first Chief of the Chancellery of the Fuhrer of the NSDAP, where he prepared secret decrees and managed party affairs before they were brought to Hitler, and his office was responsible for all of Hitler's correspondence. By order of Hitler, Bouhler also helped develop and supervised the implementation of the Nazis' early euthanasia program, Aktion T4, in which mentally ill and physically disabled people were killed. Outstanding grouping of five original photographs of Bouhler and his wife Helli liberated from their home in Nussdorf, 1.5 x 1 in., three being signed by Helli on the verso. Sold with a dinner place setting of 'Frau Bouhler' from one of Hermann Goering's various dinners, bearing Goering's gilt family crest on the left side, again signed on the verso by his wife. Sold with a signed note of provenance from Dr. F. D. Hurlbut, an American GI lodged in the Bouhler home after the end of World War II, who attests 'all items...were taken from the Bouhler home...by myself in Nussdorf, Bavaria on 12 December 1945...' Very good condition.
