Original USSR Soviet Communist Party Membership Book- 6 inch x 4.5 inch
Original Item: Original Soviet Union Communist Party membership book, printed in Russian. Each individually serial numbered with a photograph, on page 2, of the party member to whom it was issued.
On the front cover, the very top line translates to "Workers of the world, unite!" (This was the official motto of the USSR. A more literal translation is "Proletarians of all countries, unite!") The line below that translates to "Communist Party Soviet Union"; below that, "Registration Card Membership [followed by the initials of the Communist Party Soviet Union]"; below that, the serial number; and, below that, the three parts of the member's full name, each on a separate line.
Officially gathered, and then destroyed, after the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990's, these are a few of the ORIGINAL passport-style red covered Communist Party membership books that escaped destruction. Each showing the personal photo and information of the original owner including payment record of party dues.
Extremely interesting social history item from a now defunct totalitarian regime. Just what you need to impress your friends with about your time in the espionage business!
Note: These are real people from the Soviet Union (not fictional, not reproductions), however, specific name and/or gender requests cannot be honored. The pictured examples are just that: examples.
Each book is a ONE OF A KIND!
