Ott’s time card shows that he was permitted to enter the so-called Schaltwerk. He was also issued with an identification to use the Berlin S-Bahn system.
The identification card was issued in the early months of 1945 to essential workers as the train system was not running ist usual time table. To board the train there was a requirement to have an ID issued by your place of work, Ott’s permit was issued on 25.01.1945 at the Schaltwerk in Berlin Siemensstadt.
