Flag of the National Socialist Movement in the Netherlands (Item NETH 1-1; AXIS 4-14; FLAG 3-15)

DESCRIPTION: The National Socialist Movement in the Netherlands, Nationaal-Socialistische Beweging in Nederland, was the most important inner-Holland NS Party from 1931 to 1945. This loyal Germanic organization was formed by Anton Mussert in December 14, 1931. In 1936, this flag came into use. The emblem of the movement is in the center—a triangle with golden border with the Dutch lion with sword and arrows in gold. In each of the corners of the triangle is an initial of the party. The red and black stood for blood and soil, respectively (compare the German Blut und Boden). The orange, white, and blue refer to the heroic past on the world seas; the lion, stands for the power of the Dutch people; the triangle, represents the delta formed by the river mouths on the Dutch coast. The black on the upper stripe also refers to Fascism (Italian style). At first the NSB was heavily influenced by Italian Fascism, but later drew closer to the more European German National Socialism. The banner is not the ordinary type of printed wall hanging. This one would appear to be a very important podium cover probably for use by famous leaders of the Dutch N.S. group, perhaps by Anton Mussert, himself. The size of this banner is 70 1/2 x 54 inches and as we have stated is anything but ordinary having appliqué construction with satin-like gold and silver strips made to form the NSB décor and insignia; almost certainly a special construction for prestigious events. There are some considerable moth holes in the red area of the flag (The little buggers seem to have color preference at dinner or so it would seem.) This type minor damage can be expected in such an 80-year-old item as this, but it is holding well and is certainly an important relic from turbulent and heroic times. Very rare!

Incredible Group from a Dutch SS Man (Item NETH 1-2)

DESCRIPTION: Here are the effects of a Dutch member of the Germanische-SS in Holland. In 1943, this man’s name was Adrikanus van der Heide, born in Rijswijk, Holland, which is in southern Holland near The Hague. He was a member of the Nationale Jeugdstorm (Youth Branch) and, of course, the NSB (Nationaal-Socialistische Beweging in Nederland (National Socialist Movement) under Anton Mussert, Marinus Rost van Tonningen and, of course, the Reichkommissariat under Arthur Seyss-Inquart. He was also a member of the WA (Weer Afdeelingen) (Defense Section) and we make the assumption that at some time he was an NCO in the Landstorm Nederland. The reason for this is that a tunic for this outfit and that rank came with the grouping. The Landstorm Nederland was formed out of the Landwacht Nederland (Territorial Home Guard) on 16 October 1943. Control of the Landwacht (now renamed the Landstorm) was taken over by the SS. There are five fantastic albums in this group along with other things that belonged to van der Heide. Among these albums are pictures, membership cards, letters, news clippings, greeting cards, even his shoulder patch from his uniform when he was a member of the Nederlandsche Padvinders, “The Pathfinders” (Dutch Boy Scouts). Five membership cards accompany this group from 1933 to 1937. Along with this group are other cards, certificated, camping cards, and many camp-life pictures from the times traded no doubt from English or American scouts at the 1937 World Scout Jamboree that he must have attended. It was held in Holland that year. The albums when examined work up through his youngest days as a youthful member of the Jeugdstorm all the way up through his SS membership, his time as a prisoner of war, and his reentry into the world view of Nordic supremacy in the New Right of Dutch Nationalism. It can be said of van der Heide that he was a true Bewegungskamerad (movement follower) in every sense of the word. Not even the denazification stooges could dampen his intense admiration of Adolf Hitler, Anton Mussert, Rost van Tonningen, and National Socialism. This was his spirit and his mission in life. In the grouping are many pictures of himself, his comrades, his pets, his relatives, and his heroes. Very rare postcard portraits accompany the grouping. There are also many leaflets and handbills. This is without single doubt the most important group of archival assemblages ever found chronicling the NS movement in the Netherlands. We will attempt to describe the five albums separately; however, we can only show a few pictures of each one as there is a great amount to be cataloged and sorted.

Album number 1:

We call this album number one because it contains pictures of Adrikanus as a member of the Jeugdstorm. It also features rare postcards of Adolf Hitler, Anton Mussert, the “Horst Wessel Song,” the Martyrs of Munich 1923, Adolf Hitler visiting the grave of his parents, Hitler with children, Göring, Reichsjugendführer Balder von Shiriach, and a great picture of the Führer in vivid color. There are in this album stunning pictures (close-ups) of NSB personnel in parades, funerals, etc. There is an original up-close picture of Mussert reviewing NSB troopers, five extremely rare pictures postcards of the heroic Dutch warrior Rost van Tonningen giving a speech. The pictures that are all original of the youth group marching at camp, on visitations to the German Reich, wonderful and rare photos of the Germanic SS, and the WA all of which our man belonged to at one time or another. There are several pictures in this album of the man as a boy. This album measure 13 x 9 inches and contains 189 pictures to include the great postcards. Van der Heide glued a genuine-period Wehrmacht officer’s breast eagle on the cover (a friend’s?).

Album number 2:

This album contains some extremely rare and prestigiously important material not only to this group, but to history, as well. The first great item is van der Heide’s membership card in the NSB (Nationaal Socialistische Beweging) 16 December 1935. Also included is his contribution card from 1940 in the National Workforce. This was similar to the German Labor Corps, or RAD. There is also a membership pass from February 1940. There are various roster sheets and documents, general orders, and eight-page song-sheet booklet of patriotic NSB songs, and another of songs and poems, many newspaper articles from the time with pictures, two pages of pictures of famous persons of the 1930s to include the European heroes and the allied leaders that were considered war criminals by this newspaper. There is an extremely rare cartoon-style propaganda presentation depicting the communists and Jews in terror raids against the Europen peole dated May 1940; amateurish at best, but a great piece of Kitsch. Most importantly there is a printed letter from the Stabschef der Germanische-SS in Nederland dated July 1, 1934. It’s great because in 10 places the rather than SS is used in the body of the important letter. Here also and most importantly is A.V.D Heide’s membership card in the Germanische-SS in Nederland with party number 2772 and SS number A2080 (entry 23 6 1943) signed by the Voorman der Germanische-SS. There are four full-sized letters or documents from the SS division to van Heide. Two of them hand signed by the SS-Hoofdschaarleider and SS-Obersturmführer. There are other no doubt important letters some in hand and some mimeographed. There is membership card for van Heide in the Nederlandische Volksdienst dated 10 February 1943 and some kind of billing from this organization. This was the Dutch counterpart of the German Voklswohlkart established in 1941. It took over the funds of the Dutch Red Cross and did social work. There are some great color charts comparing advances under NS Germany and its allies against the nonprogress of England and France. Heide’s National Youth Group Storm Group dues card is there along with a rulebook for the organization. There are a couple of beautiful propaganda stickers; one for the murdered Mussert with a Dutch sailing ship; more hand-written letters and envelopes, and an entire Dutch 1944 newspaper and a great-condition pictorial section of an SS Dutch newspaper. The cover of this scrapbook is coming unattached from age and some of the scrapbook pages are frayed. Some of the pages have come loose, but all the material, pictures, etc., are in fine condition. The album measures 14 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches. The inside cover has a great full-page picture of Adolf Hitler and some color stamps (one depicting Mussert). This is some of the greatest Dutch fascist material ever found considering its completeness.

Album number 3:

This is a priceless one, but with a price. Right from the get-go it had 10 wonderful postcards to include great likenesses of NSKK leader Huhnlien, Dr. J. Goebbels, Field Marshal von Brauchitsch, Hermann Göring, J. von Ribbentropp, Dr. Seiss Inquart, Flieger Commodore Frederick Christian, Anton Mussert, and two great ones of Adolf Hitler. Essentially, this album consists of 163 photos, most of them comprised of the personal photos of Adrikanus van der Heide and his time in the National Jeugdstorm of the NSB (National Socialist Movement). Most of these pictures are good, clear original gloss photos measuring 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches with the exception of a great picture of A. Mussert with a tiny youth member. This one is 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 and may be a postcard. The pictures are prestigiously important archival treasure chronicling the Jeugdstorm activities and Adrikanus took many pictures of other functionaries of the NSB as well as German troops here and there. Contained herein are pictures of the Dutch NSB Labor Service (Nederlandse Arbeids Dienst (NAD)) on the March. On the third page is a large photo measuring 9 1/2 x 7 inches of a banquet and it is assumed that this was an event that included members of the van der Heide family and friends. Adrikanus is seated in the lower row second form the right. Many members of the political corps both Dutch and German are shown at ceremonies and drills absolutely wonderful pictures of the Jeugdstorm band are beautifully shown with their traditional flame drums and Schellenbaum. Visitations to historic sites are included. Many pictures of Aryan faces fill the pages. There are great pictures of the German Army on parade through Rijswijk. Several pictures of the lovely girls of the Jeugdstorm are shown marching and conducting ceremonies at memorial sites. Youth members are shown in horse care and farming methods. A funny sequence shows van Heide in a baby cage while in his J.S. uniform. Many JS camp scenes are depicted as well as school scenes. Sports such as soccer can be seen with the boys in their NSB sports togs. There are two pages of super pictures of a review of van der Heide’s (Storm section) of the Jeugdstorm being reviewed by high NSB leaders. On the last page is a 7-x 4-1/2-inch picture of a Waffen-SS ceremony where an SS officer is giving a speech while in front of a building covered with SS unit flags and surrounded by cannon. Before him stands a solitary SS NCO. Is this a pictue of a command event having to do with our Herr van der Heide? Inside the back cover is an original propaganda sticker for recruitment in the volunteer SS legion Nederland This has been copied many time, but this ins 100 percent original. This album measure 10 or 16 x 14 inches and is in very fine shape throughout. The importance of this album in particular is practically inestimable.

Album number 4:

This one is an absolute treasury of information and pictures of the NSB Movement as it emerged from the ashes of WWII. The young man van der Heide was arrested by the puppet government composed of liberals and even communists and he was spared prison because of his age (probably), but he was sent to a denazification and reeducation facility called Fort Erfprinz. He was classified as a political delinquent. This album is filled with mimeographed papers about the reeducation progress. Records of the accusatory tribunal are also there with signatures of the educators. We don’t claim to be able to read the Dutch language, but we know that all these documents are extremely rare and important. There is even the paper of assignment of Heide to Camp Vught signed by the Kampcommandant. There are receipts for currency impounded from him in 1946. There’s a sports diploma for excellence in the camp for 1948 signed by two of his comrades. A copy of a typical menu from the fort in 1947 is included and it is actually gastronomically impressive. Letters and postcards from friends and acquaintances sent to him at the fort or camps are included. Greeting cards, many letters, two original camp newsletters are shown. Document after document all having to do with his reeducation are included. Documents from 1949 through 1954 appear, too. Then the pages start to reveal that after the futile attempts to brainwash him for 6 years and after his release he once again decides his destiny as a man of the west and a believer in the Aryan way he starts to get interested in various far-right Bewegung (movements) once again, and the papers and pamphlets reflect that he joins some of them to include the Bund Junger Deutscher based in Germany with a branch in Holland. There are many newspaper articles and actual recruitment brochures, etc. He also has many period newspaper articles from the war chronicling important events with great pictures included of German and Dutch leaders, troops, ceremonies, etc. This album is fantastic in that it shows the extent that the reformers went to destroy this lad’s beliefs, but miserably failed completely. The material from the reeducation fort and the camps has to be extremely rare. This album is in decent shape, but the cover is shoddy, while the documents and pictures are fine.

Album number 5:

This album is fully as important or even more so that the proceeding four in that it brings out the true essence of the NS and NSB movements and their agenda both then and now. To those who understand the Bewegung there is downright spiritual material here; the stuff of martyrs, warriors, Europeans, all who had fought bravely against the beast of Bolshevism. The Dutch NSB had close ties with the Belgium nationalist groups and you will see some of the inserts here. Various Belgium leaflets and promotion materials, but much of the book is made up of 278 photos of the modern 1950-1970 youth movements that still exist today. These are the movements inspired by the ideas and beliefs of the NSB and the youth movement of that organization. You will see by Adrikanus’s scrapbook here that practically nothing changed; the flame drums, the seagull insignia, the HJ-style brown-shirt uniforms of both the Dutch Jeugdstorm and the Wallonien and Flemish de la Jeunesse from Belgium in several picture sequences. Here included are pictures of the boys of both organizations in comradeship meetings. The Lion of Flanders is shown on flags and uniforms in several photos along with the seagull of the Dutch contingents. We believe that van Heide is by now a youth-group leader in the Jeugdverbond der Lage Lanten. Several documents seem to indicate this membership. There are four pages of a very moving Christmas celebration in uniforms by the boys of the Jeugdverbond in which they light the Christmas Tree candles, and the nativity scene has the flags aforementioned in the background. Deeply Christian and devout were the people who made up these organization postwar and during the horrible fratricidal war. Page after page of great pictures of ceremonies, maneuvers, visitation, vacations, etc abound with many patriotic artistic handouts and great pictures from movement books new and old. Printed schedules, program, many propaganda stickers of every color and artistic-mode notices of protest and exposition are shown. Pictures of ceremonies in Belgium that Heide attended. Speaking of fratricidal war, ever since the end of WWII there have been ceremonies at a well-know monument at Diksmulde in Belgium. This towering edifice has been the scene of huge gatherings of European patriots of the far right persuasion every year since the end of the most horrible war of all time. In the front of this album there is a picture of a bloodied European crucified with the figure of the Diksmulde monument in the background and further along in the book is a color card and several other pictures of the monument. The message of the Christian cross bedecked monument is written as “No more brother wars.” So although the reds, liberals, and communists have hissy fits each year and sick their servile police on the participants all the while screaming in unison, “Nazis, Fascists, skinheads,” in reality these participants come to Diksmulde for a celebration of peace and brotherhood among men of the west. About four pages are dedicated with pictures of the brave Belgian clergyman and writer, Cyriel Verschaeve, who was condemned for so-called collaboration with the German nation and National Socialism. He had long been sympathetic to the German fatherland. He vastly admired German Imperial culture as does your writer. He loved Richard Wagner as do we. He was appointed to an NS-sponsored organization to deal with French culture after the liberation of Belgium. He also became involved with recruitment to the Flemish Legion. He was rightfully concerned and convinced that the Soviet Union was the greatest danger to peace and culture in Europe. In 1944, he met with SS-Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler about the Flemish question. He admired Himmler’s mission, but rejected some of what he thought was paganism on the part of the SS. Verschaeve continued calling on young Catholic men to serve in the Waffen-SS against the supreme evil Stalin and his cronies. He was forced to flee to Austria in 1945 with a death sentence imposed by a leftist Belgium court and he survived there until 1949, when he died of a heart attack. He remains a much loved, lauded, and celebrated figure among the Flemish nationals and symbol of anti-Bolshevism to all patriotic western manhood. So, it, of course, follows that the patriot Adrikanus van der Heide would be an admirer and devotee of this amazing cleric. On the pages devoted to him are also pictures of the youth group band with its drum corps getting ready with the Mädchen to go to the celebration of Verschaeve’s birthday. There are printed sayings on card stock of NSB leaders. Very interesting is a group of pictures—ten in all—of a special display of Third Reich artifacts that were exhibited somewhere in Holland. You can see Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe officers’ caps, cloth insignia, helmets, flags, pictures, daggers, medals, etc., and there are two original cards that seem to show van der Heide as a member of a collecting society in 1958. One of them is a dealer’s card for a show in Gravenhage billed as an international collectors’ exhibition in August 1958. As previously mentioned there are some dues cards and membership cards for the Herbergs-Benutzen Centrale from 1955 and a membership pass to the European Youth Conference in Rüdesheim, Germany. Also in this album are van der Heide’s original Nederlandesche Padfinder membership cards for 1933, 1935, 1936, and 1937. His pass for the World Boy Scout Jamboree in 1937 and a great tiny poster for the event plus his jamboree patch from his uniform are there. Camp card from Camp Duinrell plus 10 professional pictures with English titles depicting life at the jamboree camp are present. Interesting also is the 1938 Scout card issued to him in certificate form for being a district trainer at the Gravenhage camp. Also interesting is some of the artwork at the end--especially the one with theJeugdstorm boy depicted in his walk with Jesus Christ with a camp tent behind. It is and was obvious that the Dutch National Movement was Christian in every concept. This album measure 15 x 11 inches. Some of the first pages have come loose, but all are intact. Again, where would any researcher, archivist, historian, museum, even be able to have this much material on these movement in such a complete assemblage and all traceable to one highly dedicated, motivated Dutch patriot. Again we ask how did this group ever fall into the collecting field. You would think that someone in his family or friends would have thought to preserve these almost sacred, important items within their grasp. We can only hope that these items go back into Dutch archives or in the preferable European collection of some serious historian where they will be preserved for posterity and perhaps hopefully some young people will be able to see the other side of the story to some extent through all the yellow-rag journalism that has prevailed since the end of the Second World War.

PRICE: $12,000.00; this does not approach the true value for this remarkable one-of-a-kind assemblage of history
