Hitler Youth “Hochland” Iron Sign Hand Wrought in Iron or Steel (Item YOUTH 9-0)

DESCRIPTION: Here is one of the most decidedly unique Hitler Youth items we have ever offered. There were surely more of these hand crafted eagles such as the Bann-Adler which hung in the entrance hall of the Reichsjugendfuhrung, the Central Youth Leadership H.Q. of the Hitler Youth. In Berlin, iron art mastery was encouraged in the Third Reich especially among the youth. We have seen many pictures of pieces like this one in archival collections, but in our view this is the most impressive looking one we have seen. It is manufactured by hand in one of the State schools where there were iron working classes and workshops. It is 2 foot 3 inches long and 1 foot 3 inches wide. It is constructed of heavy gauge iron or steel in the shops of the HJ. There were many artistic and meaningful crafted items often carved from wood but most were of iron or steel. Perhaps steel was the “Watch-word” of the youth of the Third Reich. Hitler when describing what he wanted of the Youth Movement that bore his name said “in unsern augen da muss der Deutschen junge schlank und rank sein, flink wie windhunde, zah wie leder und hart wie kruppstahl.”  Translation: In our view the German Youth must be slim and trim, as swift as a greyhound, tough as leather and as hard as Krupp’s steel.  Yes, steel. It was the most important word to the stalwart youth, of that day - -Steel, & Iron,It was an iron time”! and the words Iron Cross, Iron will, Man of steel, daily reverberated all throughout the Reich. So such items as this sign were made of iron or steel in keeping with “The Spirit of the Age.” The HJ (Hitler Jugend) was divided into various Bann or districts, then within the Bann we find Gruppe (groups). This metal sign was used by the HJ Gruppe Hochland or Highlands, a division of the Munchen/Sud Bann. These boys were the elite of the youth organization whose training in mountain climbing and wildwood wisdom made them perfect candidates for entry into the German Army Geburgsjager or mountain troops of the Wehrmacht (Das Heers). We can’t say exactly where this dramatic looking sign was displayed but it has two chains approximately 27 inches long that obviously were for hanging from something, somewhere? We believe it is an entrance sign that would hang over a doorway or possibly a fenced enclosure in a sports arena. That perhaps identified the section for an area set aside for the lads of the H.J. Hochland group? In any case, it truly is an excellent example of hand wrought metalwork. The banner proclaiming the group name and the HJ diamond are in separate iron pieces but fitted to conform to the central design. The highlights of the whole sign are cleverly painted to bring out a most dramatic and heroic effect. This is Third Reich aesthetic achievement in its most exquisite encompassment. It truly personifies the era and its hoped for agenda. Germania once more brings a considerably paramount item of history to the museum and collectors world once more!

Pendant of Japanese Archers Made for Members of the Hitler Youth (Item YOUTH 9-1 & JAP 1-7)

DESCRIPTION: This is a very unusual and rare badge that was struck in N.S. Germany. (Please read the narrative on our home page entitled “About our Rings and Silver Insignia”.) In the Hitler Youth there was a vast interest in Japanese cultural life and art. Visitations to Japan by youth members were often made while Japanese youth were sent on trips to Berlin and Munich. The H.J. leadership and counselors were particularly interested in the cult and the saga of the Samurai. The chivalry, the traditions and the use of their weapons were of particular interest to the Hitler youth lads. The art of archery especially from horseback fascinated them. And there were exercises in Japanese archery at several of the Youth camps throughout the Reich. The H.J. organization gave as an archery prize a pendant copied from one of the ancient awards as presented for centuries by the various Japanese archery groups. The award that came in silver for 1st Class and bronze for 2nd Class, was a skull struck in these metals, and would suspend from a chain about the neck. Since archery was considered not only a favored sport but also served to train Japans warrior class in weapon dexterity, it ranked next to proficiency with the Samurai sword. These were considered “National Treasure Pastimes” so it would only follow that the youth of Germany in their desire to be an elite entity would be vigorously enthused about learning all they could about the archery skills of the Samurai. Just like American Boy Scouts received merit badges for proficiency, so did the H.J.  This badge could be considered exactly that...an award for excellence in Japanese style archery. To wear this petite skull marked the wearer as an expert exponent (extraordinaire!) in this age old art. The medallion  is very small about (one inch high). The detail is great!  Having been produced in Germany, the silver ones are stamped with the 925 silver designation on the back of the jaw. This is an item that is important in historic tradition and today quite rare indeed. Just as rare in bronze as in silver.

A Jungmadel Wimpel (Pendant) (Item YOUTH 9-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is a rare pendant called a “Wimple.” They were carried on flagpoles at events of the girl's equivalent of the Hitler Youth organization (the ‘Jungmadelschar’). This particular one was carried by the members of that group in the small town of Wickrathberg, a town so small that it was inhabited by only 2,200 citizens today. Many people moved out in 1945-1948 because the town had the horrid bad memories of being one of the places that were POW camps assigned to “Rheinwisenlager” -- this was possibly the worst of about 20 U.S. camps for over one million German prisoners of war in the Rhineland during the period from spring to late summer 1945. We won't go into the horrors perpetrated by the Allies that is a shameful chapter in history that the U.S. government has never investigated. It was a major war crime instigated solely by the commander Dwight D. Eisenhower who decided not to consider the detainees as prisoners of war but as disarmed enemy forces in short (DEF), a no longer existent stage, accordingly they should not enjoy the  protection of the Geneva Convention. They were denied all benefits such as Red Cross help, even the aid of the townspeople. Over one million POWs died as a result of Ike's orders. Read the book “Other Losses” by James Bacque -- a real eye opener as to war crimes that you may not ever hear about in our controlled press. OK, so I got carried away again! But I am a Revisionist Historian and I feel duty bound to report the truth. When I get the urge and the name “Wickrathberg” just lights a fire of revisionist truth within me that just had to come out! 

Back to the Wimpel -- it has the standard HJ insignia on the other side with a stain that may or may not be able to be removed. No, dear romanticists, it is not blood -- the pendant is otherwise in great condition.  It is a consignment item and can’t be put on a payment plan.

“ORDENSBURG” The N.S. Political School
A Grouping of Pamphlet Style Soft Cover Books From Ordensburg Vogelsang
 (Item YOUTH 9-3A)

DESCRIPTION: This is a grouping of educational booklets that we managed to buy at the Frankfurt A.M. Book Fair in Germany a few years ago. We finally got around to digging them out for inclusion on the site. For us to list them individually, these books would sell for prices anywhere from $40 to $75 each but since we will offer them in lots we will make them most reasonable. In fact, so reasonable that they should move right out if one would consider what a great bargain is being offered here.

We will start with 6 issues of ‘Wille un Macht.’ This was the official booklet of the leadership (Fuhrer Corps of the Hitler Youth and the students at the Ordensburg).  These are six issues that were sent out on a bi-monthly basis to the leadership corps by the central publishing offices of the NSDAP. They were also sent to the U.S. to be issued to officials and Youth leaders of the “Jugendshaft” of the German American Bund that is evidenced in part of these books with the English words Printed in Germany stamped on several of the issues. The Ordensburgen Program was a plan to educate future leaders of the German Reich. In a 1933 speech in Brenau, Adolf Hitler demanded that new schools be built for the children of the leaders of the National Socialist state. The task was given to Dr. Robert Ley, the Reichs organization leader and national leader of the N.S. work programs.  He undertook the construction and operation of four educational centers: Ordensburg, Krossinsee in Pomerania, Ordensburg Sonthofen in the Algau Ordensburg Vogelsang, in Eifel and a fourth one was planned at the historical Marienburg castle in West Prussia.  Much information can be seen about Ordensburg Vogelsang and the others on the World Wide Web by entering “Ordensburg” on Google. As always, we caution you to read ‘between the lines’ because you must remember the Victors get to write the history! The Ordensburg program turned out fine young leaders for what would have been Utopian Socialist Society of Germanic thinking and actions quite different than the Socialism of our countries today. Don’t make me expound on this or I will be assaulted by the ATTACK RATS on the military forums who believe in suppressing historical opinions that are expounded upon by revisionists but these serpent like ‘talking heads’ love to demonize anyone with different ideas about WWII and its aftermath but they do it from their slimy keyboards, never one on one personally. They are in a word “Cowards” and would be heroes who are actually misanthropes and cretins of the very lowest reptilian order.

The booklets are in fine condition and each one covers subjects important to the creation of the ‘New Man’ within the agenda of the NSDAP each booklet has a stamp that states that the issue is from the Ordensburg Vogelsang library (Bucherei) and as we have stated practically all of these also have the stamp (Printed in Germany) 5 of them are from 1938 and one from 1937. Truly historically important and very collectable. 

PRICE: $250.00 for the lot

Grouping of Various Soft Bound Titles from the Library Collection of the N.S. OrdensburgVogelsang Political School  (Item YOUTH 9-3B)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a grouping of six very important booklets from the Library of the Ordensburg Vogelsang in the Eifl. In the description that can be seen above you will know something about these schools of higher learning that existed in the Third Reich. These examples are typical of the printed material that was bought at the famed Frankfurt A.M. book fair held annually in Germany. This is a hand selected lot lifted from a much larger group all from then N S Ordensburg Vogalsang political school. The booklet on the 1936 Olympics is a guide book for stenographers to learn shorthand but it has great pictures from the 1936 games.  The Wille und Macht is a 1934 earlier version of the ones shown in the narrative above this one. There is an anti-Soviet issue of “Die Kameradscharft.” The organ of the Hitler Youth from 1937. The name is “Der Brandherd Moskau.”  Another important one is Rede Des Fuhrers and Reichs-Kanzlers Adolf Hitler Vor Dem Reichstag AM 30 Januar 1937." (The Speech of A. H. before the senate on 30 January, 1937.) Another is Fuhrerblatter Der Hitler Jugend 1935. (Leaders instructions of the Hitler Youth.) Then there is “Die Burg Das Deutschen Jungvolks (The Castle of the German Young folk) published for the Jungenschaft.  This one speaks of the beginnings of the concept of Ordensburgen.  Quite a collectors bundle and prodigiously important historically.

A Dozen Varied Booklets from the Library of Ordensburg Vogelsang N.S. Political School  (Item YOUTH 9-3C)

DESCRIPTION: Here is another lot, this one comprised of 12 important pamphlet style booklets that were from the library collection of the Ordensburg Vogelsang in the Eifel. See the proceeding two narratives above for more details about the Ordensburgen. This group has some very important academic titles as can be seen in the picture attachments. We won’t go into the description of them beyond what the images will tell but the years of these issues are from 1935, 1937, 1938. All are in good shape, all bear the stamp of the Ordensburg Vogelsang and some have the stamp “printed in Germany.”  The reason for that is explained in the 1st group of 6 offered above. Titles such as Das Junge Deutschland 1935 are filled with very scarce HJ material and that one has 95 pages.   Der Kampf um Berlin (the Fight for Berlin) 1938 is a much sought after Kampfzeit issue of the Jugendschaft.of the German American bund   “Morgan” the National Socialist Youth Quarterly does have pictures of youth activities.  This is a very great grouping at a very reasonable price. 

PRICE: $175.00 for all! AN INCREDIBLE OFFER!

Germanishe Landdienst Silver Brooch (Netherlands Hitler Youth) (Item YOUTH 9-4)

DESCRIPTION: This is a leaders brooch for the Germanic Land Service. The Germanic land service evolved from the original group, The Landjahr (Land Year), of the Dutch Hitler Youth. It actually encompassed volunteers from among the youth of all the Nordic countries and laterally, even of the Baltic states. It is supposed that the Germans hoped to expand the concepts of the HJ Organization to one of universal German Youth (Germanishe Jugend). The terms Germanic Land Service and Germanic Youth were often used as interchangeable. Probably it was hoped that the Germanic Youth would become the junior counterpart of the Germanic SS in liberated Germanic countries. A step which seems to indicate this was a setting up of Germanic National Schools (Germanishe Reichsschulen). A joint effort on the part of the SS and the Hitler Youth, the schools that existed at that time were only three -- two in Holland and one in Belgium. These schools were open to all Nordic Volunteers not merely to Dutch and Flemish lads, however of course these Nationalities predominated. The uniform for males in the movement was a mixture of SS and Hitler Youth as befitted the joint parentage of these establishments. It consisted of a brown tunic with darker brown collar open at the neck worn with a yellowish brown shirt. On the upper arm (left) the SS eagle was worn, slightly smaller than the Waffen SS sleeve eagle. Brown shorts with ankle socks and shoes were worn.  Headgear was a brown forage cap with the National eagle and swastika (not the SS type) on the front above a red/white/ black cockade. A cuff title proclaimed Germanishen Landienst and was worn on the dress tunic for officers. So what we have here is a brooch or badge that is considered Hitler youth-connected and has SS connotations as well. Please read our narrative entitled “About our rings and silver insignia” on our home page. This badge is now and then encountered in a cheap white metal production, this was the way they were first produced by various companies in the Netherlands. When the organization grew and prospered the leadership wanted a more refined and highly detailed badge, so the SS and HJ leader corps went to a jeweler and requested him to produce a brooch in fine silver. What he came up with was a beautiful piece that certainly demonstrates Germanic beauty and excellence in the jewelry arts. The piece is the size of an American silver dollar or about 1 ½ inches in diameter, the tone and shading is superb!  It is stamped 800 on the back. This refers to fine silver. The Odel rune and sword represent the Holy Germanic soil that gives sustenance and the sword represent defense of the Nordic Fatherland (then united in the spirit of the Bewegungt). This brooch could be worn by the female leaders of the movement or by the men who were higher officers on the sides of their caps or on the tunic. This in my opinion is one of the sharpest looking insignia of the HJ-SS.

Kreisieger Badge 1939 (Item YOUTH 9-7)

DESCRIPTION: This was not only the most coveted badge of the Hitler Youth, but actually the prettiest of all with the beautiful Reichs Eagle holding the cogged wheel that is topped with the diamond of the HJ organization. The highest levels of the award was the Reichsieger for the award at National level and the lowest badge was the Kreissieger. This was the local level. There was also a Gausieger for the state level award. All were greatly desired and worked for. Competitions were held actually every spring in the Reichsberuf Wettkampf der Deutschen Jugend instituted by Dr. Robert Ley, head of the D..A.F (German Labor Front), the idea being the promotion of worthy young men who would be the future tacticians and hierarchy of labor. 

A. Initial tests were divided into three components including a test for skill in the particular tested trade.
B. Political Theory
C. Mathematics and composition, each badge bore the date of the competition below the eagles wings. The reverse of each badge bore the manufacturer's logo. Those normally found are G.Brehmer, Mark in Neukirchen, A.G.Tham Gablonz and Mecker, also H. Aurich Dresden.

The one we offer here is made by the A.G. Tham Company and its year is 1939. This badge is in wonderful condition with a minute discoloration on the very bottom of the HJ diamonds enamel (perhaps the size of the head of a pin). Recently a close friend Wilhelm Reichard Gehlen wrote a book called ‘Jungvolk’ and one of these badges is shown on the cover. We will include a signed copy of this vastly interesting book with the badge. Willi was in the Deutsches Jugend (German Youth) too young for entrance into the Hitler Youth. You will find the book enlightening and historically interesting and it’s a freebe!

Kreiseiger Badge Document
Kreiseiger Badge Document

Kreisieger Badge Document from 1938 (Item YOUTH 9-8)

DESCRIPTION: This document is much rarer than the badge itself. This was to be presented in 1938 to a winner of the Kreissieger badge for the competition of that year. See the badge from 1939 above for more details. This particular document was never presented, thus no name is attached, and the proud winner of the badge would be even more thrilled with the award document with his name added in calligraphy. The award had a great picture of the Fuhrer Adolf Hitler and the facsimile signatures of Dr. Robert Ley, the leader of the German Work Front and Balder von Schirach, the Reich Youth Leader. The German Youth movement gave a sense of pride and comradeship to the German boys and girls of that era. I have talked to dozens of former members and although they lived through the present day brainwashing sessions and manufactured demonization of Germany’s past as practiced by the present government, I have never met one of these former HJ boys or BDM gals who even now, late in life, did not have very fond memories of their time in the young peoples organizations of the Reich. Generally when the victors of a war wrote about their side's experiences, it is usually quite at variance with the truth, especially when it comes to describing the actions of the vanquished. Eugene O’Neill paraphrased it when he quoted “To hell with the truth! As the history of the world proves, the truth has no bearing on anything!” The eminent historian Harry Elmer Barnes put it this way, "Truth is always the first war casualty. The emotional disturbances in historical writing are greatest in wartime."   

The document when open fully measures 16 ½ x 11 ½ inches. It is printed on a fine linen based paper and having never been issued, it is in wonderful pristine condition. The front cover has a golden colored reflection of the badge. Too bad it is not 1939 instead of 1938 so it could go with the badge in the section above. But then they would make a great grouping anyway.

A Statuette of a Hitler Youth Standard Bearer Early 30’s (Item YOUTH 9-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is possibly a unique figure! In all the accumulative years of our Germania staff about (150 years worth) we have never seen another like this one. It is a positively great looking dramatic figure. We are not sure if he is made in bronze or white metal. The figure is signed by W. Zoll; a well known artist in the 1930’s creating mostly National Socialist inspired subjects. The statue depicts the lad in the early Hitler Jugend uniform. The headgear shows that he is wearing the attire used in the 1933-1936 period. The boots that fully lace to the top also are indicative of that period. His armband is of the standard HJ type and the flag is the correct style. From the bottom of the flagpole top the figure measures 14 inches high. The boy is 8 ¼ inches from the top of the plinth to the top of his cap. The plinth is about 2 inches high and 3" x 3" square at its bottom portion. What a great figure! Accurate in every detail and in perfect condition. Remember there is only one that we know of...a wonderful addition to a Hitler Youth collection or a General WW II accumulation or any good N.S collection. Yes, he is possibly pricey, but again, I remind you...“unique!”

Scrap Book Made by a Hitler Youth Boy in 1938 (Item YOUTH 9-10 & GEN 14-21)

DESCRIPTION: This to me is a wonderful testimony of a German who was full of National and racial pride in his Fatherland, his people and his Führer. Of  course these words of mine and his scrapbook will be an anathema to some of the folks who shouldn’t be on this site to start with -- 72 years ago from the time I write, this young lad collected pictures from books and pressed them into this little hand-made album that he designed. Along with this he made many dissertations  in glowing terms about Adolf Hitler, his party, his soldiers and workers -- the captions that he wrote are in the usual Times New Roman style but his essays are written in ‘Suttertin”, this beautiful style of writing was taught in German schools from 1915 to the late forties, it is beautiful script but difficult to read for modern folks even in Germany today. It is still used by the older generation. The scrap book is nicely designed as to its cover that was designed by the lad who we were told was 7 to 9 years old when he assembled it. The news pictures are moving and dramatic. There are 54 pages of text by the lad as he extols the virtues of his beloved Deutschland and there are numerous pages of pictures all personally selected by the boy for meaning and truly reflecting his pride and patriotic inner soul brought forth in this young lad's contribution to history if only in a little scrap book.

Hitler Youth Armband—-with a History (Item YOUTH 9-11)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a very nice example of the Hitler Youth official armband. This was bought directly from a lady in Berlin, who said it was the property of her brother; now deceased. If you look at the pictures you can see that at the lower-right corner there is a bloodstain, and over the years the stain actually damaged the fabric at that point. She told our German picker that her brother was wearing this armband when called up for the Widerstand—the last-ditch engagement against the Red onslaught against Germany’s capital city. She admitted that her heroic brother accounted for himself effectively and took out three of the vicious Red personnel personally with his Sturmgewehr. He sent them to meet with “der Teufel im der Hölle. In the course of the action Otto was wounded in the arm and that is why the armband is seen to be stained. He kept it over the years and gave it a special place in his home hidden from the Russians and later the Bundes-deviates in the west. He was proud to have served Führer and Volk. His sister, Ana-Marie, kept the armband after her brother’s passing, but now in her old age she thought she would like to see it in the collection of some individual who would hold it in reverence and it might give them reflection on the stark heroism shown by many young men who gave so much and the many who gave all for the preservation of Germany and Europe. The armband, other than the stain of honor, is in fine condition and bears the paper tag of the RZM and the Hitler Youth inside. This is an important historical relic with the saga of bravery in heroic strife. God grant it never happens here!

Hitler Youth Podium Banner (Item YOUTH 9-12)

DESCRIPTION: This looks like the standard H.J. “Wimpel” (pennant) and probably is, but it was common practice to mount one this way and hang it from a speaker’s podium when a group of boys was being addressed by a youth leader. There were more of such speeches by these H.J. officers in a year than all the other party functionaries would call to order in five years. This is because this was not merely propaganda it was schooling for the future leaders of the Reich. The banner is mounted in black wool felt and it measures 42 x 24 inches. The banner itself measures 37 inches long. Is the banner double sided? We don’t know because we were not willing to cut away some of the threads to check. We don’t mess with the original historical items; we leave them as we receive them.

DESCRIPTION: Here is a large plaque that would be a desk ornament or paperweight featuring a glider and the characters “D L V 1933-1935” at the top, and at the bottom it reads “Traditions-Fliegersturm 1/20.” The plaque looks to be molded from red clay and measures almost six inches in diameter and ¾ of an inch thick. It almost looks to be a school project for lads of this organization and the Hitler Youth. It’s rather homely, but important as you seldom see items from this organization other than cap badges. This was given to participants in a traditional and probably annual flying exhibition. Rather rare in that this is the first one we have ever seen.

Leistungsbuch for Deutsche Jungvolk and Hitler Jugend with other Pertinent Papers (Item YOUTH 9-14)

DESCRIPTION: Basically, a Leistungsbuch is a performance book that records all the required actions and accomplishments of a boy who was enlisted in the ranks of the finest program ever promulgated for youth that the world has ever seen. This book was owned by a young man by the name of Heinz Hofmann born in Marktredwiz on 28/8/21 and joined the Hitler Youth in 1933. He was assigned to Gebieit 22 in the Bavarian Ostmark. The book is filled out with much personal information about this Aryan young lad. Included with the Leistungsbuch is a card showing that he became a high-ranking S.Z. Führer (leader) and was headquartered in the leadership camp in Berchtesgaden from May until June 1936. This was a card that signifies that he honorably participated in the programs and instructional classes of the camp; this was a very high honor. Also included is a card issued by the Jugend Führer of the Reich, Balder von Schirach. This is a rare card that allows Heinz Hofmann to make one official visit to Hungary on 10/8/38 to 10/9/38. This official visit was numbered trip NR. 344. It has the stamp of the Jugend Führer and is signed in the absence of von Schirach by a unit leader of the H.J. Seldom, if ever, does one find such an interesting package so complete with these rare passes. This is rare and historically important.

Scenes of old Potsdam

Book Der Tag von Potsdam (Item YOUTH 9-15)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a very early and rare book centering on the Hitler Jugend (Hitler Youth) with 100 pictures from the great march of the Hitler Youth from all over the Reich to the old Prussian city of Potsdam. There is a foreword by Reichs National Youth Leader Balder von Schirach. The soft-cover book was published in 1933 by the German publisher of Hitler Youth material, Horst Knopke in Munich. There are 64 pages packed full of beautiful sepia-tone photos that trace through photography the historic march to Potsdam. This famous—even sacred—Prussian city called to the youngsters from all over the land of Germany and, of course, the march sometimes entailed a very long walk clear across Germany from the Rhine to the eastern forestland. Here were the stalwart, loyal, healthy children of Germany marching to martial music and folk songs with their heads held high and their spirits soaring in anxious anticipation to meet their Führer Adolf Hitler and partake in the grandiose events that would take place there. In the spirit of Prussia’s Frederick the Great (Der Alte Fritz!) it was a chance just like that experienced by the Boy Scouts of America grand tours. Here was an opportunity to meet other young HJ Kameraden and hear the speakers of the NSDAP, SA, and SS; a chance to sit at the nightly campfires and hear mystic sagas, ghost stories, and of course the glories of Germany’s magnificent noble past and to see and appreciate this beautiful state that once housed so many military and civil heroes. These men and these buildings were the stuff from which legends were made. So here, dear collector, is the ultimate Hitler Youth book. " Vorwärts! Vorwärts! schmettern die hellen Fanfaren! Uns're Fahne flattert uns voran!"

Hand-written, Hand-illustrated Songbook Unsre Lieder (Our Songs) (Item YOUTH 9-17; RAREBOOK 1-11; NSD 18-47)


DESCRIPTION:
Here is what I would have to call a national treasure. It is a small 6½ x 4-inch-sized book with heavy cardboard covers. It is titled Unsre Lieder (Our Songs). It is made up entirely of many pages of nationalistic songs many of them written for the Hitler Youth and it was a loyal member of this organization who put this marvelous book together. It was a labor of love for this lad as you can see through the obviously enthusiastic rendering by his own hand of the beautiful artwork; it shows his absolute love of his German Fatherland. The writing is in German script of the old school (the romantic letters of beauty). There are illustrations of knights, witches, banners of Prussia, a Viking dragon ship, the magnificent Prussian eagle, cannon fire, a bugle boy, and camp scenes with Indian-type tepees, among others. This is evidence of the noble interests and education of this nonliberal, diversity-lacking culture age that was so different from the acid age of today where the dregs of the jaded society worship such degenerate and despicable punks that present themselves as knights of Satan (KISS), the Rolling Stones, and other vicious forms of expression. Frank Sinatra said: “Rock and Roll is a most brutal, ugly, desperate, vicious form of expression it has been my misfortune to hear.” Germany, the land of Beethoven, Wagner, and Brahms, is now to some extent the land of totally degenerate music as is our America, the nation that infected Europe beginning after WWII. As the dangerous march to perdition goes on at least we know that the author of this little songbook was not under the spell of Lucifer.

Special Oak-Leaf-Engraved Hitler Youth Knife (Item YOUTH 9-18)


DESCRIPTION:
Here is the nicest Hitler Jugend Fahrtenmesser that we have ever seen. In fact, there is a beautiful engraving accomplished over most of the metal parts of the grip. The lady we bought this from at a flea market in Germany said that their father was so extremely proud that his son had performed such outstanding achievement in the HJ that on Christmas of 1937 he hand engraved his son’s knife and presented it to him as a gift (Weihnachtsgeschenke). In 1943, the boy went off to the war on the Eastern Front and was never seen again. But here as a testament to this young hero’s life is his Hitler Youth knife. It should be cherished and admired for what it is and what it represents. The knife is in the condition one would expect of a knife that saw much use in the daily scouting activities of a lad who was so proficient in his youthful activities in the HJ. The motto on the blade is practically worn out but you can still see the “Blut und Ehre” (Blood and Honor) motto on the surface. The pommels and back spine are decorated with the deeply engraved oak-leaf design. The knife is by “WKC” (Weyersberg und Kirschbaum, Co.) in Solingen. The scabbard shows the wear that would naturally evolve when an active Hitler Youth boy would have it for even six months of hard wear and usage. My own Boy Scout knife was like that in a month or two when I was with the BSA. This is a great and unique knife.

BDM Jacket and Skirt (Rare!) (Item YOUTH 9-19)


DESCRIPTION:
Here is a treasure we recently bought at a militaria show in Germany. It’s the extremely rare jacket and skirt from the BDM in really fine condition.

League of German Girls or Organization of German Maidens (BDM)

Der Bund Deutscher Mädel, (BDM) was the girls' wing of the National Socialist Party youth movement, the Hitler Youth. It was the only female youth organization in N.S. Germany. At first, the league consisted of two sections: the Jungmädelbund or Young Girl’s League, for girls ages 10 to 14, and the league proper for girls ages 14 to 18. In 1938, a third section was introduced, The Faith and Beauty Society: BDM-Werk Glaube und Schönheit, which was voluntary and open to girls between the ages of 17 and 21. The BDM had its origins as early as the 1920s, in the first Mädchenschaften or Mädchengruppen, also known as Schwesternschaften der Hitler-Jugend (Sisterhood of the Hitler Youth). In 1930, it was founded as the female branch of the Hitler Youth movement. Its full title was Bund Deutscher Mädel in der Hitler-Jugend (League of German Girls in the Hitler Youth). In the final electioneering campaigns of 1932, Hitler inaugurated it with a mass meeting featuring the League; then on every election eve, the League and Hitler Youth staged an “evening of entertainment.” Actually, it didn’t attract a mass following until the National Socialists came to power in January 1933 (“die Machtergreifung”). The uniform of the BDM was a full, blue skirt, middy blouse, and brown jacket or tunic and heavy walking shoes. Fraulein Trude Mohr was appointed the first Reichsreferentin in June 1934. Her main initiative was to nourish a new way of living for the German youth, stating: “Our volk has need of a generation of girls which is healthy in body and mind, sure, and decisive, proudly and confidently going forward, one which assumes its place in everyday life with poise and discernment, one free of sentimental and rapturous emotions, and which, for precisely this reason, there comes later women in sharply defined femininity, that would be the comrade of a strong man, because she does not regard him as some sort of idol but rather as a companion! Such girls will then, by necessity, carry the values of National Socialism into the next generation as the mental bulwark of our people.” The BDM used campfire, romanticized, summer camps, listening to sagas of folklore tradition, and indulging in sports to indoctrinate girls within the National Socialist belief system, and to train them for their roles in German society: wife, mother, and homemaker. Their Home Evenings revolved around domestic training, but Saturdays involved strenuous outdoor exercise and physical training. The purpose of these activities was to promote good health, which would enable them to serve their people and their country. The ‘home evenings’—ideally to be conducted in specially built homes—also included world-view training, with instruction in history and Germanic tradition. This instruction would often include learning the "Horst Wessel" song, celebrating the Germanic and National Socialist holidays, stories about Hitler Youth martyrs, and facts about their individual localities and German culture. Physical education included track and field sports like running and the long jump, gymnastics (e.g., somersaulting and tightrope walking), marching, and swimming. The importance of self-sacrifice for Germany was heavily emphasized. There is the true recollection that a Jewish woman, reflecting on her longing to join the League of German Girls, concluded that it had been the admonishment for self-sacrifice that had drawn her most. The League was particularly regarded as instructing girls to avoid Rassenschande or racial defilement, which was treated with particular importance for young females. Holiday trips offered by HJ and BDM involved skiing in winter and tent camps in summer–all these programs were made affordable; children from poor families got subsidies from the N.S. Party. These offers were, of course, very popular.

*At this point I feel I must stop and say that the Hitler Youth and the BDM were nothing short of marvelous for the training and the appreciation of honest toil while young people were of the age of learning and retaining the then-respected work ethic of the west. Had the war ended differently, we would have seen a youth that was respectful, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and faithful, (Does this sound familiar?) instead of the sassy, unclean, would-be villains and sloppy, disrespectful sloths that for a large part are found on the street corners texting with their iPhones all sorts of vile messages to other miscreants and pot smokers. The girls are painted creatures who wear the garb of men and in many cases spew forth more dirty mouthings than the bums and punks they hang out with. Culture in the true form is laughed at while they passionately genuflect over such obscene groups as the Grateful Dead, Motorhead, the Sex Pistols, and other equally degenerate purveyors of trashy sound (I refuse to call it music!). So, my collector friends, this BDM outfit in my view is sacrosanct in a way because it represents what I believe was a refined culture stratum that was cursed by the culture destroyers and all of its high ideals smacked down and now replaced by the Coca-Cola culture and chewing gum adherents (the Alfred E. Newman “What me worry?” types.). Free speech? Well, I have just indulged in free speech. There will be those who will protest, but there is a neat little word in the German language that sums up to a certain extent which in my way of thinking describes the objectors: “Belanglosen” = “Inconsequentials.” Do I think there are clean, brilliant, ethically responsible youths with high ideals in America and the west? Most definitely YES and God bless them because if we have any future then it must rest in their hands, but today they are unfortunately the few!

The BDM Uniform

The jacket and skirt are the size for a small female probably in the 10-or-11-year age group, or for just a petite girl. The jacket is constructed in a fine moleskin-like material, soft as velvet to the touch yet tough and highly durable. It has a military look with four flapped pockets and strapped cuffs. The left arm bears the triangular patch that identifies the section or Gau that the girl was assigned to (usually her home state). This one is from Southeast Steiermark in southeast Austria. Below this patch is the diamond-shaped insignia of the Hitler Youth organization with swastika. Each of the brown buttons on the tunic bear the initials of the BDM. Inside one of the pockets are two extra buttons and inside the waistband is what once was an RZM tag that because of probable constant wear is worn out and its legend is no longer visible.

The Skirt

This is possibly the rarest part of the outfit of the BDM tunics we have ever had (about 3). We have never seen one that included the skirt. This is extremely rare! The skirt is of heavy, wool material and is blue-black in color and is pleated with two back pockets and belt loops. One belt loop is missing and the other is unattached. Together the tunic and skirt make for an absolute treasure and a relic worth preserving if only as a reminder of what actually could have been the Western Imperium.

Fenstergitter from a Youth Hostel of the Hitler Youth (Item YOUTH 9-20)


DESCRIPTION:
The head of the Hitler Youth Reichsführer, Baldur von Schirach, maintained a summer house that he called called Aspenstein that was on Lake Walchen. There was also one of the largest of the Hitler Youth hostels there, as well. These buildings were in southern Bavaria and built in 1936. Von Schirach was also as part of his HJ leadership, the Reichsführer of the N.S. Studentenbund (The Organization of German Students). This Fenstergitter, or window grill or grating, is custom made and measures 41 x 12 ½ inches with an open 19 x 11 ½ elongated, diamond-shaped swastika. The actual shape of the swastika leads us to believe it was for the youth hostel and probably not the Schirach home. There are six drilled holes along the frame for attaching. This is one of six original window lattices that were used. It is believed only two survived. One of these was bought in 1964 and remains in a European collection. The second surfaced in 2000 and was purchased by our consignor. It is this second frame that is offered by us. It weighs 14 pounds. This is a very rare and historically important relic of the Reich.

Urkunde (Document) for Membership into the Hitler Youth (Item YOUTH 9-22

DESCRIPTION: Here is an official Urkunde of the Hitler Youth in which a boy by the name of Orning Schmidt, who, on April 20, 1939, the birthday of Adolf Hitler is admitted and entered into membership in the Hitler Jugend (Youth). On the document’s folder is printed the badge of the Hitler Youth in color. There is a picture of Adolf Hitler and a narrative that works out to be the oath of the recruits. This initiate will speak thusly:“I promise when in the Hitler Youth at all times that I will do my duty to serve in love and loyalty always to my Führer and true to our flag with the help of God.” This was the pledge of this boy, Orning Schmidt. I only hope he survived the horrid war while keeping his oath as so many other lads like him did. Theirs was a crusade and a mission to save Western civilization. However, unfortunately, the dark forces won, but then with the help of God there might be a reversal yet!

Hitler Youth Winter Dress Tunic (Item YOUTH 9-24)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an excellent example of the winter dress of the Hitler Jugend. It is a wool tunic with a seven-button arrangement including the flap-pocket buttons. The boy who wore this one was a member of the Hochland (Mountain) Division of the H.J. thus he had the mountain flower—edelweiss—on his collar. This could have been official or it could have been a personal choice?? On the arm is the red, white, and black swastika armband with the diamond-shaped design as required, and above this you can see the particular unit patch signifying the geographic location that the lad was assigned to; in this case it was Südost Oberdonau (Southwest Upper Danube.) Unfortunately the tunic is missing the shoulder boards, but otherwise this is a very nice tunic and an important historical object, and in very nice condition.

Hitler Youth Armband (Item YOUTH 9-25)

DESCRIPTION: Here is the standard issue armband of the H.J. Hitler Jugend (Hitler Youth). This was worn by boys who had reached their fourteenth birthday. This of course was the official organization of the National Socialist German Worker’s Party (NSDAP). The H. J. origins date back to 1922 and from 1933 until 1945 it was the sole youth organization in Germany and later was partially a paramilitary organization. In 1933, Reichs Youth Leader Balder von Schirach became the Reichsjugendführer (supreme leader of the organization). Members wore uniforms very similar to the dress of the Sturmabteilung (SA) with the exception of the armband The H.J. armband had the swastika in a diamond-shaped background with a stripe running from this configuration all the whole length of the band. The rigorous intellectual and academic training was meant to prepare the youth for membership in the SS or other government positions. They would become “Übermensch,” or superior human beings. I have talked with many Germans who almost exclusively remember with great fondness and warm memories of their time in the H.J. Think about it, how did it compare with the listless youth of today whose heroes are degenerate rock bands and pot-smoking professors who preach false, perverted, debased garbage as far left as can be imagined. I say “degenerate”–and that means “to become unlike one’s race or kind, to fall from ancestral quality!” Is this not a good description of the largest percentage of the “fallen youth of today?” The HJ had an uncorrupt, virtuous, clean, and honorable agenda that went forward under its flag as they marched singing, “Vorwarts, Vorwarts, Schmettern die hellen fanfaren- Unsere Fahne Flattert un voran!” (“Forward, forward, blast the bright fanfares – our flag flutters before us!”) And they indeed did march proudly while proudly carrying that flag and wearing this armband.

The Armband

It is in almost-mint condition. Inside you can see the paper “RZM” tag still intact. The “R.Z.M.” tag was the seal of the Reichszeugmeisterei. This was the primary quartermaster’s office as well as the national material-control office of the NSDAP. It was the official purchasing office for all government sanctioned materials.

PRICE: $335.00; the best one you will ever see!
