Default FJ Hitler Death Document

Is this original? For some reason it reminds me of the stuff a local scumbag would print up from an old German typewriter he found and stamp with original German ink stamps. I'm no expert with documents, if it's original it's pretty interesting.

Why should he write "Fuehrer" and "Fallschirmjaeger" and not "Führer" and Fallschirmjäger" ?

I am pretty sure I've seen this exact document on a forum before... not sure if it was here or on German MFF. And if I remember correctly it was considered original.

In this case it would be more logical an italian Typewriter. The I. Fallschirkorps was in Italy at the time.

I'm inclined to say a fake for 2 reasons:

1) on April 29 1945 the HGr C signed the capitualtion in Italy ( Surrender of Caserta), that was effective on May 2 1945. Has no sense write such a messagge to his soldiers after the death of Hiter.

2) and more important. On the book "4. Fallschirmjäger -Division. Aufstellungs. Kampf um Italien. Kapitulation" is reported a message of the I. FJ-Korps written by Heidrich on May 1 1945. It has completely different words and means.

It starts with «Paratrooper, the war operations are going to an end. The last weeks and days required you huge performances and efforts. But the spirit our corps is not broken!». He continued speaking about duty, the fallen comrades etc.
It was simply signed with «Your general» (Euer General).

Greetings from Italy
