Below is a translation of a 1934 Nazi Party record for Viktor Dorschke indicating a name change from Viktor Drozdzok. It shows clearly that Viktor Dorschke was a member of the Nazi Party. The translation of a three page document follows:

Viktor Drozdzok (Dorschke)'s address at the time of his wedding (about 1914) may have been Amalien str. 14 in Ratibor. There is a 1938 address for Ingrid Renata Dorschke of Inburtenburg str. 605 in Ratibor. Her relation to the Dorschke family is currently unknown- she may have been a 7th sibling or Cousin (of Dorothea Dorschke).
