Ehren Chronik (Honour Chronicle)

Ehren Chronik (Honour Chronicle) Soldiers Remembrance Book

This book was given to soldiers after they had served their time of active duty in the Wehrmacht, Kriegsmarine or Luftwaffe. The Ehren-Chronik was published by the NSKOV (Nationalsozialistische Kriegsopferversorgung), the Third Reich organization which took care of the veterans.

Very few were issued especially towards the end of World War Two very few soldiers were discharged as manpower needs were dire. As a consequence very few soldiers ever received their book of honor.
