Lot of three French 1st Army safe-conduct passes dropped upon German soldiers in the hope that they could be convinced to surrender. Each pass is 5 ½" x 8 ½" and bears typical promises of good treatment, etc. One pass is aimed at Austrian soldiers fighting for Germany, and urges them to give up so that there might again be a "democratic Austria". Another pass is far more blatant, proclaiming: "GET OUT OF THE SHIT...Hang it up! Call it quits!... when you come home, there will be no Gestapo, no SS, no Party, more, and all the big men dangle..." The third pass bears text on one side laid out in the manner of a German-issued pass, the verso reading: "You too, can return to your home!..." Very good.
