Ultimately rare Wehrpass!  Hanisch was a radio operator at Gleiwitz, where the flase flag attack on the Gleiwitz radio station took place, thus justifying the Polish Invasion.  (On the night of 31 August 1939, a small group of German operatives dressed in Polish uniforms and led by SS Sturmbannfuhrer Naujocks seized the Gleiwitz station and broadcast a short anti German message in Polish.  The operation was named "Grossmutter gestorben".  The operation was to make the attack and the broadcast look like the work of Polish anti-German saboteurs.)
