    This is a calling card for Gottfreid Graf Bismarck-Schönhausen (1901-1949, who was the Staatsminister. He was Otto von Bismarck’s grandson, and a member of the Nazi Party. He was appointed to the Reichstag. He was also a friend of Heinrich Himmler, and eventually was appointed an SS Brigadeführer. Late in WW II, he became opposed to the war’s continuation. He participated in the plot against Hitler. His position and family connections spared him the other plotters’ grisly fate. He was banned from all further public participation in politics. Bismarck-Schönhausen was killed in 1949 in a road accident. The calling card measures 2 1/4″ x 4.”
