"Tag der Deutschen Polizei 1941" or "Day of the German Police 1941": by the German artist R. Seyfried, who unfortunately I know nothing about. They were also done as postcards that came in a commemorative pack. "WHW" stands for "Winterhilfswerk" or Winter Relief - literally "winter help work" indicating they were used as donation tools to support the Police fighting in anti-partisan duties behind the Army.
