"To the Reichs Chancellor Adolf Hitler, we, the Magistrates and City Council, award Honorary Citizenship in the City of Tilsit...Tilsit, 20 April 1933. The Magistrates - the City Council". With the signatures of the lord mayor, Dr. Salge and the director of the city council. In brown leather folder with applied enamelled city coat of arms. Dimensions 40 x 31 cm. Interesting honorary citizenship certificate. In October 1944, the front had advanced to the Memel. Tilsit was declared a front-line city and the population was evacuated. After heavy artillery fire, which destroyed 80 % of the city, it was the first great German city within the Reich to be taken by the Red Army and renamed Sowietsk. The 89th Armoured Brigade received the title "Tilsiter", and an artillery salute of 20 fusillades was fired on Red Square.
