Signed Photograph from Hitler’s Apartment (Item AH 18-1)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an absolutely wonderful signed and dedicated picture from Adolf Hitler long before he was Chancellor of Germany, and the people’s Führer in 1930. It is an official Heinrich Hoffmann photo and it is a large one. The photo in the frame measures 15 1/4 x 12 inches. This picture was personally presented by Hitler to his housekeeper at his Munich apartment in 1930. We mention this frame in our article about the Hitler gun titled “Gun of Destiny.” We have written about Frau Anni Winter, the head housekeeper at the Prinzregentenplatz apartment. Adolf Hitler thought a great deal of Frau Winter and her husband, an officer of Hitler’s Leibstandarte-SS bodyguard division, LAH. You will read all about this in the gun article. You can see that Frau Winter stashed away as much of the paraphernalia that she could get away with in 1945. The GIs took much, but the speculative Anni grabbed some of the more important things along with this framed picture of her boss, whom she adored. The picture is personally signed to her with the noted greeting: “To my beloved Frau Winter with best wishes for Christmas, 1930-Adolf Hitler, Munich 1930.” The silver frame is engraved to read “München, Weihnachten 1930.” (“Weihnachten” means Christmas). The frame is marked very clearly with the moon and crown in a framed stamp and the ‘925’ silver content stamp and the ‘W’ for Wagner, one of the finest silversmiths of Munich. In April 1954, a Munich court ended a 3-year legal squabble over some of the remaining effects of Adolf Hitler. To little Frau Anni, his onetime housekeeper, the court awarded one well-used suitcase that belonged to Hitler, five copies of Mein Kampf, and three watercolors by Hitler. The 1954 edition of Time magazine mentioned this settlement and also pointed out that part of this settlement was a silver-framed photograph. This photo we offer is none other than this piece, but it is well known that these recovered items are not the only items Anni squirreled away. In the 1960s, she opened a small antique shop in Munich and for the most part sold normal everyday antiques, but when she was convinced that a customer was a serious historian with a genuine interest in Third Reich history and had a genuine interest in articles having to do with this fascinating era, she would go to the Gutezimmer, or good room, and produce an item or items that would amaze the beholder who might just be lucky enough to purchase it. Any words uttered that might serve to defame her former employer, suddenly the item would be withdrawn as fast as it appeared. She really was not profit motivated at all. When it came to these treasures she felt she was selling part of her life when she let something like this go. Seldom did she ever let any of the items go. She would never sell the silver Christmas frame while she was alive. That was her proudest possession in the world. However, after her death, the items were auctioned off in a famous Munich auction house and some of it was sold privately through that outlet; presumably by her relatives. This fabulous and important framed picture was part of the privately sold items. It is well known and was sold again by an American auction house dealing in military and personality items. This auction was on 20 December 2000. The auction certificate (hardly needed) stated correctly that this was exceptionally rare in that Hitler rarely did more than simply jot his name on such gifts, but to the beloved Anni, he did the honors on that Christmas of 1930. In 3 years he would be the leader of all of Germany, but for now, simply a friend and employer. The signature is visible, but faded almost as if his pen ran dry to some extent after writing the first part, but he must have been using a pen from a pen-and-ink set (desk type) when his pen point goes back to write “Christmas Dec. 1930.” You can see he dipped the pen again. His signature is clearly visible, however, to the beholder, when you look closely. The back of the frame is a fine Bakelite material or it would seem to be. Hitler articles are today considered fantastic investment pieces, and this one is one of the finest offered in the recent past. Hitler’s desk and chair are being offered in London at 500,000 pounds; close to a million dollars, and are expected to bring that much. This framed signature and the Hitler revolver on our site, as well as the desk and chair that are on auction all came out of the same apartment complex at the Prinzregentenplatz. It was probably at that desk that the future Führer signed this memento to Frau Winter. For sure, the revolver came from that desk drawer. The framed Winter gift would have to be as important as the desk; common sense would dictate that (we would certainly think so). This was a very personal item presented in what obviously was in the Christmas spirit to a person who figured closely into the life of this, the most-hated man and the most-adored figure of world history at virtually the same time. The desk—a utilitarian tool, no more no less. What do you think dear collector? I, for one, vote for the picture and the gun, but it will be interesting to see what the furniture actually brings, won’t it?

Wir wollen” “We Want” (Item AH 18-2; GEN 11-5)

DESCRIPTION: These are the statements of the German führer to the people of Germany and the world at large. This was a statement of position concerning the will and the spirit of the National Socialist agenda of the German nation. This was from a speech made just after Hitler was elected the chancellor on March 5, 1933. This speech was made on the March 25, 1933. The whole of the great address is presented on a beautifully constructed wooden plaque. Around the edges are 18 shields depicting the various German provinces such as Saxony, Brandenburg, Lippe-Detmold, Prussia, Bavaria, Mecklinburg, Wurtenberg, Hannover, and the Hanseatisches states. At the top is the German state eagle shown without swastika (too early). However, in the letters that form the large “Wir Wollen,” tiny swastikas are interwoven in each of the letters. The entire plague is made to resemble marquetry (and does!). It measures 20 x 13 inches. On the back it still has the tag of the manufacturer and it has number ‘9159’ stamped along the edge. Perhaps this is an inventory number from whatever school, office, or government building where it hung. This is a very showy piece of Third Reich history and important, indeed.

PRICE: $495.00

Book Mussolini Erlebt Deutschland (Item AH 18-3; I-FAS 3-5)

DESCRIPTION: The book Mussolini Experiences Germany is a 100-page pictorial of the visit of the Italian leader to Germany in 1937 (a good year), with a foreword by Dr. Otto Dietrich, the Reich’s press chief. It was produced by Heinrich Hoffmann, the Führer’s personal photographer and one of his closest friends. Fully pictorial, this is a photographer’s masterpiece. It has great photos of the Führer and Il Duce plus all the ceremonies. You will see the gaily bedecked streets of Berlin and Munich, many of the NSDAP and Fascist leaders, adoring crowds, important buildings, etc. This is a fantastic book that brings to life the glory days of the German and Fascist Reichs. There is a sheet that is a Christmas greeting tucked inside that presents this pictorial work as a gift, with a facsimile signature of the Reichsschassmeister. What a great volume in good shape and prodigiously important to the person who is interested in this stage of the Pact of Steel to later emerge.

PRICE: $375.00

Book Goethe, Faust, owned personally by Adolf Hitler and from his Library (Item AH 18-4)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a treasure and it is one of three beautiful books that were formerly in the library of the German führer, Adolf Hitler. Besides being the personal property of Hitler, the books are extremely rare and in utterly fantastic condition. They are special editions and were produced in 1940 by Carl Albert Kindle in Berlin. The books are made to look like medieval volumes bound with the look of manuscript collections of the 1500s. The binding is a masterpiece itself in each case. The pages are on parchment stock with the ragged edges like medieval documents. We have been told that Adolf Hitler much loved these particular special volumes and also we were informed that a publisher and author by the name of Max von Boehn would publish along with the Kindle Verlag one special edition each year and that they were very limited numbering a total of 100 editions per year. Each year of course was a different theme: Wagner, Shiller, Goethe, and Luther. We have never seen such beautiful books. They are also huge; each measures about 10 1/2 x 8 inches and are about 2 to 2 12 inches thick and very heavy. The back binding looks like white leather and possible it is! Each book contains absolutely wonderful illustrations. Some of the best are separately adhered to the pages in the best tradition of 1930s and 1940s style for museum-quality volumes. Tucked inside the front of each volume is the official bookplate of Adolf Hitler with the early NSDAP eagle. Under this are the words ‘Adolf Hitler’ and above the traditional ex libris, which means ‘from the library of.’ This bookplate is shown in several books written about Hitler. He had huge libraries at the Reichs Chancery, his apartment in Munich, the Obersalzberg above Berteschesgaden, the brown house in Munich, and various other places such as the chancery at Bertesgaden. This one is the Goethe Faust book. Faust was one of the Führer’s favorite tales by an author that he considered the greatest in the entire world. This edition by Boehm is devoted to Faust und die Kunst (the arts). Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1749-1832 He was a poet, novelist, dramatist, humanist, scientist, theorist, painter, and for 10 years chief minister of state for the duchy of Weimar. He was one of the key figures of German literature, the author of Faust, and theory of colors. Goethe’s influence spread across Europe, and for the next century his works were a primary source of inspiration in music, drama, poetry, and philosophy. He is widely considered to be one of history’s greatest geniuses and to Adolf Hitler, a (Heldenmann) (heroic figure). The book was given to a couple who was married on December 1, 1942, by a man identified only as Hans and he signs a short poem hand written in calligraphy in the front flyleaf of the book. He says to this couple:

Always be true and sensitive. Let your motto at all times be this and that is what I wish for you on this wedding day and this book is in eternal gratitude. Your Hans, 1.11.42.”

The story that was told us is that in 1944 the husband fell at the front and the wife, who was a loyal National Socialist and ardent admirer of the Führer, presented their wedding album to Adolf Hitler knowing he collected these rare editions. A wonderful letter accompanied the gift stating that it was being presented to “Unser Führer” in loving memory of her dear husband and children’s father who had bravely laid down his precious life for Volk, Reich, and Führer. The letter was in the hands of the collector in Germany, who agreed reluctantly to sell the volume, but would not release the letter because he promised the widow that he would never let it be publicly seen. He told us the letter would now be destroyed. We immediately agreed in the full knowledge that in today’s occupied Germany this would be the prudent action for the security of the brave, but wise lady. Her secret remains forever! This and the other two elegant books are absolute treasures almost beyond description. They are historically prodigiously important. They must be preserved in an excellent collection or fine museum. Again the condition is excellent (near mint).

PRICE: $2,800.00; extremely reasonable

Book Das Nibelungen Lied, Special Edition owned by Adolf Hitler (Item AH 18-6)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a treasure and it is one of three beautiful books that were formerly in the library of the German Führer, Adolf Hitler. Besides being the personal property of Hitler, the books are extremely rare and in utterly fantastic condition. They are special editions and were produced in 1940 by Carl Albert Kindle in Berlin.

They are also huge; each measures about 10 1/2 x 8 inches and are about 2 to 2 12 inches thick and very heavy. The back binding looks like white leather and possible it is! Each book contains absolutely wonderful illustrations. Some of the best are separately adhered to the pages in the best tradition of 1930s and 1940s style for museum-quality volumes. Tucked inside the front of each volume is the official bookplate of Adolf Hitler with the early NSDAP eagle. Under this are the words ‘Adolf Hitler’ and above the traditional ex libris, which means ‘from the library of.’ This bookplate is shown in several books written about Hitler. He had huge libraries at the Reichs Chancery, his apartment in Munich, the Obersalzberg above Berteschesgaden, the brown house in Munich, and various other places such as the chancery at Bertesgaden. This particular edition is Das Nibelungen Lied Gedächnis-Ausgabe für Richard Wagner.” Much has been said concerning Adolf Hitler’s passion for Wagner. He once said, “To understand National Socialism you must first understand Wagner.” He worshipped the master of Wahnfried and could quote every word from every opera from beginning to end. He gloried in hearing the Walkurie, Siegfried’s Rhine journey, the Meistersinger von Nürnberg, etc. He even insisted that when films about German paratroopers plummeting from the sky were shown to the public the “Ride of the Walkuries” must accompany the film sequences. The party rallies at Nuremberg opened and closed with Wagnerian themes, and performances of Wagnarian operas were always state occasions. On another note Wagner orchestral pieces are not allowed to be played in Israel ostensibly because he was indeed Hitler’s favorite composer. More truthfully, however, it is due to the great man’s comments on (you-know-what!). Hitler not only respected Wagner for his immortal music, but for his political statements, writings, and ideology. Richard Wagner, May 22, 1813-February 13, 1883, was without a doubt the most influential German composer, conductor, music theorist, and essayist, primarily known for his operas (or “music dramas” as he later came to call them). He transformed musical thought through his idea of “Gesamtkunstwerk,” or “total artwork.” Epitomized by his monumental four-opera cycle Der Ring der Nibelungen (1876) Wagner’s concept of leitmotif and integrated musical expression has been a strong influence on many 20th-century film scores. To Hitler Wagner’s music extolled the heroic mythos of the National Socialist ideology and the saga of the heroic German nation. It is true that Wagner believed that western society was doomed because of miscegenation between superior and inferior races. He formed this opinion after reading Arthur de Gobineau’s An Essay on the Inequality of the Human Races, and this is reflected in the opera Parsifal. In any case, the parallels between Wagner’s ideas and philosophy closely resemble Hitler’s, even to the religious concepts that that Old Testament had nothing to do with the New Testament, and that the God of Israel was not the same God as the father of Jesus, and that the Ten Commandments lacked the mercy and love of Christian teachings. He insisted that Jesus was of Greek origin rather than Jewish. This was the opinion of Alfred Rosenberg, the main NS philosopher, and Hitler himself held this opinion. There is no question at all that Hitler was ardently enamored with Richard Wagner and it goes without saying that this special-edition book was probably considered one of his most precious possessions. Hitler was a very plain man never given to collecting articles of antiquity, fine fabrics, medals, etc. His first love was art and he collected many masterpieces—paintings and sculptures. Just as importantly, he loved to acquire books and he was an avid and devoted reader. So we feel that this special Wagner volume that we offer is without a doubt one of his treasures. It is offered here at Germania at a price that is both reasonable and certainly a wonderful investment. Hitler-owned items are being offered from time to time at astronomical prices. We at Germania try to keep these items affordable to the collecting public. We are proud to offer this extremely important volume.
