Five Photographs of Hans Frank and Family (Item PERS 4-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is a group of five original pictures of Hans Frank and his family. The pictures were found in Tegernsee in the Bertesgaden area where his home was located. He was, of course, a lawyer and eventually rose to be the personal legal advisor to Hitler. He had served in the Freikorps and joined the German Workers’ Party in 1919. This soon evolved into the NSDAP. He actually took part in the famous Beer Hall Putsch. In 1933 Hitler appointed him Minister of Justice in Bavaria. Later he won an election to the Reichstag as a National Socialist representative in 1930. In 1931 the Führer designated Frank as a Reichsleiter and in 1933 was appointed Bavarian Minister of Justice and Reich Commissioner and Reformer of the NS legal system. In 1934 he aspired to Reich minister without portfolio—the high point of his political career. He then was appointed President of the German Academy of Law in 1939. Then in the same year (the beginning of WWII) he became the governor-general of the general government for the occupied Polish territories. He was granted the SS rank of Obergruppenführer. I wall only say that he was an able administrator much more can be found on the internet. He was captured by American troops at Tegernsee. He was not a Hermann Göring at Nuremberg, that is for sure, but we must remember the dire threats made by the allied interrogators against the families of those incarcerated there. He, like the others, at least tried to indict the Russians, especially for crimes that made the alleged NS excesses seem mild. But this was of no avail and he went to the gallows bravely. The pictures are really snapshot types (nonprofessional) probably shot by family members or friends. A couple of them even have the ragged edges that were usual in photo developing of the 1930s. The one of Frank with his wife and daughter is nice as a typical Bavarian country scene with the shuttered windows. Behind Frank is dressed as the typical Bavarian Burger in Lederhosen. Another scene shows him with the family dog on his lap, while the children are seen with an elderly lady, who might be their grandmother. Typical Bavarian houses are seen in some of the photos. Three of the photographs are in the 4 1/2 x 3-inch size and two are 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches in size. All are clear except for the one showing two women in dirndls that were typical of the area. These photos came from the home of a relative whom we met while in Tegernsee. They will remain however ‘unnamed.’ We can guarantee their authenticity 100 percent with certification letter.

PRICE: $350.00; for all five of them

Document signed by Gottlob Berger chief of staff of the Waffen SS (Item PERS 4-3; WAF 10-1)

DESCRIPTION: Gottlob Berger July 16, 1896 through January 5, 1975. The man was a famous SS Obergruppenfuhrer. He was the head man in the maintenance of prisoner of war camps up until Germany surrendered. He was astounding intelligent and being always a really reasonable officer and he was responsible for several different offices. He seriously protected those soldiers in Waffen SS uniform whether German or not, and he did his duty with great dedication. He was the supreme NS patriot and Himmler considered him as a trusted and steady advisor. He was twice badly burned during air raids.  Like it was with most German families he suffered great losses during the Allied terror raids  in 1943 his oldest son was killed in action in the Bloody Charkov battle while serving as an officer in the Waffen SS, and his son-in-law Andrews Schmidt who was Volksdeutsch  leader in Romania disappeared forever in the Soviet Union at the end of the war  Oberstgruppenfuhrer Berger was indicted for various war crimes at the Nürnberg Star chamber court and spent many years in the infamous Landsburg prison. When he was laid to the eternal rest on January 11, 1975 the ceremony was attended by family, friends, and several hundred former Waffen SS soldiers to whom he dedicated so much of his life. Many of them were former volunteers from Germanic lands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Holland, and some of the Funeral Wreath’s proclaimed "Unser Ehre Heist Treue" (Our honor is loyalty!)

The document is dated November 28, 1942 and it originates in the office of the Reichsfuhrer SS in Berlin with the subject "Aufnahman in die "Algemeine SS"
 Sondentrage record or recording of the Gen. SS. as special application from the Reichsfuhrer SS. “The chief of the head office and acquisition office III 1 A/az. 9 b/3.10.41 VOM 3.10 1941. 12 Special chiefs of the head office and leaders of the SS Oberabschnitte (special SS district)
It seems to be a letter confirming transfer of new members of the general SS into the Waffen SS . It has the typical approval stamp and other important sections of the SS Oberabschnite. Includes the Stabsfuhrer of the Allgemeine SS in the district. This signature is not legible but he was an SS Sturmbannfuhrer. The frame is 21.5 x 19.5 the actual document is 8x10 there is a picture of Gottlob Berger attached but unlike this actual document this is a facsimile. The document is with his actual hand written signature.

The document is carefully framed in museum safe presentation preservation with acid free matting and museum grade non glare class. The frame is of the finest quality and actually lends itself to the quality of that era. A great historical treasure in a fitting memorial to a great commander of the elite Waffen SS.

A Memo from Albert Speer December 1943 (Item PER 4-5)

DESCRIPTION: This is a “Schnellbrief” (memo) sent from the office of the General Building Inspector for the Reich Head Office who was none other than Albert Speer.  The letter regards an official transfer for Chief Engineer Schwarz from the city of Pinsk in Poland. The letter is to the Minister for Transportation (Minister Dr. Erhardt) who was in  Berlin at  #8 Wilhelmstrasse under this it is marked “Regarding Chief Engineer Schwarz and the body of the letter reads:
“We are in contact with Chief Engineer Schwarz in Pinsk for several weeks now regarding his transfer to the Department. We are still interested that Schwarz will take this position we ask you to release him now from his present duties. We strongly believe that you are aware of our present struggle on the eastern front and we therefore assume, you will part with Schwarz and that you have another person to fill in his present position. “Transport Fleet Speer” is essential for armament transport and war production and we need qualified personnel at all times, here at home and outside Germany. We had been in contact with Schwarz before you took up your present position and Mr. Schwarz agreed then to this transfer providing of course if the Minister gives his permission. We urge you to free Schwarz now for our position as Chief Engineer.” The letter is signed by a Staff Member of Speer’s office.  But since the letter is essentially from Albert Speer in that the directive emits from his auspices, it had to be approved by Speer himself and he signs it in hand under the stamp of the Reichsverkehrs-minister (east). Speer signs it in red pencil as was his wont to do. Himmler always signed in green pencil and Speer chose red. Goring used blue. This was done so that the approval of content is assured to be in orchestration with the wishes of the Chief Official himself. Speers signature is shown in the Charles Hamilton book “Leaders and personalities of the third Reich” pages 126 and 127.  The letter is dated Dec. 1st, 1943 and sent from the Templehof airport office Transport Fleet Speer (“Transportflotte Speer) is mentioned in several places on the internet and was an essential program necessary to the war effort especially on the eastern front.  So, the letter has important implications and is a document well worth preservation. It has been very professionally framed with museum style handling.  Non-glare glass and acid free matting has been carefully applied. The frame measures 2 ½ by 20.  The document measures 7 ½ x 11. A nice plaque is mounted as well with explanation of the documents meaning this is a truly important message from the past that needs to be preserved in our opinion it was not essentially a German struggle but rather a European engagement against the Communist menace that even today seeks world domination although under different names and “different places.”

Letter from Himmler Letter from Himmler Letter from Himmler Letter from Himmler Letter from Himmler

Signed Letter Sent to Heinrich Himmler from Reinhard Heydrich (Item PER 4-6, SS 34-2, HH 4-8)

DESCRIPTION: This is absolutely incredible.  Probably the best document from Heydrich and Himmler ever found or offered.  It is addressed from ‘The chef der Sicherheitspolizei und des SD’ who of course is none other than Reinhard Heydrich with address in Berlin at the Prinz-Albrectstrasse. It is addressed to the Reichsfuhrer SS and Chef Der Deutschen Polizei.  Heinrich Himmler the body of it translates to:“Please see enclosed two copies of letters from SS Brigadefuhrer Dr. Best addressed to me. I conferred with Dr. Best in Paris only in official matters.  A personal discussion regarding (our) the Reichsfuhrer’s decisions have been postponed to a later date.” Signed… Heydrich with a “Heil Hitler.” One small thing that we find utterly fascinating concerns the official stamp. Either Heydrich himself or a secretary in the S.D. headquarters made the mistake of stamping it upside down. Now if it was done inadvertently by Heydrich, well, so be it!  But if done by a member of his staff I am sure there was “hell to pay” when it reached Himmler!!  In the received stamp at the top of the page is a notation with a 79 and the initials of Heinrich Himmler certifying that he received it; this is done in green pencil as this was invariably the way Himmler signed these documents “THEN NOTE:” - -if you look at the offending seal you will see that Himmler makes a notation with a large green check mark with the famous pencil, showing that he is aware of this grievous mistake. This makes for a most interesting document outside the norms of history. This is about as official as it can get also and is a communication between two of the most important persons of the Third Reich. They don’t come any better than this one! They really don’t! By far the best clear, concise and extremely important SS directive that we have ever had the pleasure of presenting. The document has been professionally framed with museum precision with non-glare glass and special acid free matting.  The beautiful frame measures 13 ½ x 17 ¼.  The actual document is 8 x 9 ½.

The Fabulous Rings Presented to Professor Paul Ludwig Troost
and His Wife, Gerdy Troost
(Item PERS 4-7 & ART 15-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is an incredible offering that we are very proud to bring to you; the beautiful personal finger rings having belonged to the famed Professor Paul Ludwig Troost and Frau Gerdy Troost, his wife. Professor Troost  was the Third Reich’s Master Architect who was a personal friend to Adolf Hitler and his chief architect before Albert Speer. He was the designer of much of the grand buildings of the N.S Reich. He was born on August 17 1878 in Elberfeld, Westfalia. Troost belonged to a school of architects, who even before 1914, reacted sharply against the highly ornamental Jugendstil and advocated a restrained lean architectural approach almost devoid of ornamentation. Troost graduated from designing steamship décor before WW I and the fittings for elegant transatlantic liners like the Europa to a style that combined Spartan Traditionalism with elements of modernity. Before 1933 he did not belong to the leading group of German architects. He became Hitler’s foremost architect whose Neo-Classical style became for a time the official architecture of the Third Reich. His work filled Hitler with enthusiasm as the Professor planned and built state and municipal offices throughout Germany. In the autumn of 1933 he was commissioned to rebuild and refurnish the Chancellery residence in Berlin. Along with other architects, Troost built many of the typical N.S. buildings that still miraculously survive today. We say miraculous because the “Bundes government liberals” who strive for “political correctness” (Marxism) and are doing their level best to destroy and remove every inch of any edifice that the Führer might have walked into or out of. His works in this period include new administrative offices, social buildings for workers and bridges across the main highways. One of the many structures he planned before his death was “Der Haus der Deutschen Kunst” (The House of German Art). It was intended to be a great temple for the true, eternal art of the German people. It was a good example of the imitation of the classical forms that prevailed in monumental public buildings during the Third Reich. Hitler’s relationship to Troost was that of a pupil to an admired teacher according to Albert Speer who later became Hitler’s favorite architect. The Führer would impatiently greet Troost with the words; “I can't wait, Herr Professor, is there anything new? Let’s see it!” Troost would then lay out his latest plans and sketches. Hitler frequently would declare according to Speer that he "first learned what architecture was from Troost." The architect's death  on March 21, 1934 after a severe illness was to Hitler a painful  blow, but Hitler remained close to his widow, Frau Gerdy Troost, whose architectural taste frequently coincided with his own, which made her (in Speer's words) a kind of arbiter of art in Munich. Troost was buried in the Nordfriedhof Cemetery in Munich. Hitler posthumously awarded Troost the German National Prize for the Arts and Sciences in 1936.

Speer - - “What Dietrich Eckart was to the Führer for the exchange of ideas of world politics, Professor Troost was for wonderful architecture." The Führer during his great speech at the cultural meeting at the Reichparteitag of 1935 delivered a memorial to professor Troost which could not have been a more beautiful tribute to a great architect of our times. Hitler said, "We should be filled with happy pride that through a strange fate Germany possessed the greatest architect since Schinkel, for the New Reich and for the movement, he erected  his first and unfortunately his only tremendous works in stone as monuments of true Germanic and Teutonic purity!” After Professor Troost's premature death, his wife, Gerdy Troost, quite ably took up his work. She had finished school in 1920 when she met Dr. Professor Troost. She moved to Munich with him in 1924 and they married one year later. In 1930, she met Adolf Hitler for the first time through her husband's work. Herr Troost planned numerous constructions for the remaking of Munich, “the capital of the movement,” and  in 1934, together with Professor Lenord Gall, she oversaw the continuing construction of the “Haus Der Deutschen Kunst” (The House of German Art) and the renovation of the Konigsplatz. The Führerbau, The Parteibau and the Temples of the Fallen -- all of these were designed by her late husband, Paul Ludwig Troost, and she resolved to bring them to conclusion for the glory of the German Reich but also as a lasting memorial to the work of her beloved husband. In 1935 she was named a member of the “Haus Der Deutschen Kunst” and in 1939 of the advisory council of Bavaria Film Inc. In 1937, she had been nominated as a professor by the Chancellor of the German Reich, Adolf Hitler. Until the end of the war, she belonged to Hitler’s closest circle of friends, as had been her late husband.

Both the Professor and his beloved wife were adored always by the people of Munich and highly appreciated by the Mayor and the city council for their artistic betterment of the “Hauptstadt der Bewegung” (Head City of the Movement). Thus each of them at different times were honored with the official bestowal of various official gifts but none of these were as important or as appreciated as the Honor Rings (Ehrenringe) of the city of MunichThis is a very rarely  presented ring. The city of Munich elders would be petitioned to give its approval before the Lord Mayor (Oberburgermeister) was permitted to award this sign of honor. Therefore, not many of these rings were ever in circulation. The ring has the depiction of the Reichsadler (eagle) that hovers over the “Munchner Kindle” or Munich child. The child is traditional and dates back to 1239 or so. The child is always depicted as a monk with open hood.  Early impressions always show the little monk with outstretched fingers on one hand and a book in the other. The kindle stands before the city gate section known as the Karlstor. The ring presented to Professor Troost is a much larger version than the one given to Frau Troost and is of a somewhat different construction. The silver mark is clearly marked inside the shank. The setting is extremely classic with the Munich symbol raised on a platform with beautiful pierced supports seen to be open at its ends. Quite a heavy piece of jewelry and absolutely gorgeous.

No. 1 Professor Troost's GOLDEN HONORARY RING OF THE CITY OF MUNICH. These rings are gold plated silver with 835 Hallmark. They are quite heavy. Professor Troost's ring, for example, weighs 20g.

No. 2 Frau Troost's GOLDEN HONORARY RING OF THE CITY OF MUNICH. This Honor ring is quite a bit smaller and does not have the pierced supports that are open at the ends but like her husband's ring, it has the beautiful scene of the Kindle standing in front of the gate and it of course has the Third Reich eagle hovering in the air above. It is quite a beautiful piece of jewelry on its own.

 No.3 Frau Troost's Onyx Signet Ring. Along with these two magnificent rings was a beautiful onyx ring that belonged to Frau Troost. It is a beautifully designed silver ring (835) with an onyx top with the GT monogram for “Gerdy Troost.” The design is simple but elegant for an elegant lady. Without a doubt, this shows very fine jeweler's craftsmanship. Weight 9g with  dimensions 30mm x 20mm.

How these rings fell into the hands of a famed Munich auction house, we cannot venture a guess but they are decidedly original and precious and will be featured in a soon to be published book on Rings of the German Reich.  In 1950, during Germany’s “de-nazification” phase, Frau Troost was sentenced not to work for 10 years and was fined 500 Deutschemarks...Why? Well she was a friend of Adolf Hitler!  Later she again took up her beloved work. She always stood up for her convictions as a German patriot totally unrepentant as to her admiration and respect for her Fuhrer and the N.S. Movement. She was always an upstanding (real) German and a worthy artist. Adolf Hitler once said in 1942 “I have known four exemplary women: Frau Troost, Frau Wagner, Frau Scholz Klink and Leni Riesenstahl."  So it is a fact that hardly any finger rings could be more historically important than these two pieces. Pricey? Well, that can be expected when considering an investment in something as important as this. Remember, not only are they gorgeous, but the issuance was as we have stated, extremely limited as far as the honor rings are concerned, but here we have two of the most important jewelry pieces of the Third Reich.

Book: Aus Der Kampfzeit Des Deutschvolkifschen
Schutze und Trutzbundes

Signed by the Author
(Item PERS 4-8 & GEN 14-6)

DESCRIPTION: Here is possibly the most rare book we have ever offered. It is an original edition of the Shutze und Trutzbund. This title translates to the German Nationalist Defense and Defiance Confederation, a Pan-German umbrella organization for extreme right-wing groups which used the swastika as their symbol. Adolf Hitler gave one of his earliest speeches at the Schutz und Trutzbund meeting in Munich. It was the first time he had appeared on such a stage and the first time he had tasted the addictive rush of adrenaline at facing a very large audience. The group was considered the elite organization within Pre-N.S. Germany and its membership was a who’s who in Germanys Nationalist activists. Dietrich Eckart, Reinhard Heydrich, Bernard Rust, Gottfried Feder, Julius Streicher, Kurt Daleuge, Fritz Saukel, Karl Kaufmann and a host of other important names were on the membership roster. The organization was heavily anti-semitic and it sprang up in the wake of the failed communist Revolution of 1918. The group had the view that the Jews had conspired with Bolshevik traitors in trying to subject their Fatherland to Communist rule. The group was formed in 1919. This organization revived the ritual murder accusation as well as re-printing Rohling’s “Talumud-jude.” The book has 44 pages only, but they are packed with text (German) and remarkable pictures that are not seen in other books, contemporary or antique. It has pictures showing the early forms of the swastika and anti-semitic handbills of the time. A great picture of a statue of Hermann the Liberator with Dietrich Eckart's “Deutschland Erwache” slogan on its base. Loads of anti-communist material and pictures of the leading members of the bund -- three pages full (about 60 members shown). The book was published in 1939 so it is basically a history of the Schutze und Trutzbund and its work and accomplishments. It measures 8 ½" x 12".  The cover has the symbols of the organization. The book is written and assembled by Alfred Roth and is signed and dedicated by him. It surely was a very limited edition and most probably was only given to actual members. At the back of the front page there is a special presentation line that reads "this edition was specially produced for the herein named Gefolgsmann (supporter or comrade) and then his name is written within a lined space, Franz Steus Wirdt, and under this is the facsimile signature of Alfred Roth who was the Hauptgeschaftsfuhrer (business manager) of the Schutze and Trutzbund. Roth was the Chief Administrator of the organization. He was actually the man who founded the Schutze und Trutzbund. He was considered the foremost expert in the Reich on the “Judenfrage” -- the Jewish question. He was the one who coined the phrase, “Der Juden ist Unser Ungluck!” (The Jew is our misfortune.)

Across from the presentation page is a tone poem hand written by Roth himself and he signed it in 31.12.1942.  It goes like this:

Deutschland Den Deutschen
War unser ruf
Der Dion Drittes Reich
Den Boden Schuf
Deutschland Kien Deutschland
Das Judengeschrei
Mach hete die Welt
Vom Judenjoch Frei

Germany for the Germans
Was Our Desire
He who created the Third Reich
Gave us back the land
Germany “My Germany”
The Jews all wail
Please make this world free
of all Jews

We can’t stress how important this early book truly is. The Shutze und Truzbundes, The Thule Society, the Freikorps were truly the vanguard of National Socialism. Had they not paved the way so to speak, the party of Adolf Hitler might never have made it. We can’t imagine anything so prodigiously important unless it be a signed edition of Mein Kampf. But it is even more rare than that...this is for the true educated Germanophile who will be most fortunate to procure it. This is truly a historical treasure almost beyond belief

Kurt Daluege SS Gruppenführer – A Letter to SS Gruppenführer Heydrich -1941 (Item PERS 4-10 & SS 34-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is a very rare communication between Kurt Daluege, who in 1942 was an SS Gruppenführer. (Later SS Obergruppenführer and Generaloberst Der Polizei on April 20 1942.) Daluege was one of the most powerful leaders of the Third Reich (born Sept 15 1897) and the son of a Prussian State Official in the small Silesian town of Kreuzburg. He entered the Imperial German Army in 1916 and served with the 7th Guard Regiment West. During his service, he was severely wounded a number of times (declared 25% disabled and also decorated for extremely brave action in the face of the enemy). After the war he became leader of a Freikorp detachment called Selbstschutz Oberschlesien (SSOS) in Upper Silesia which was engaged in combat with the Poles in that region. In 1921, he became active in the Freikorps Rossbach. Two years later Daluege joined the NSDAP and in 1926 the Sturmabteilung (SA) eventually becoming the leader of Berlin’s SA and Goebbel’s Deputy Gauletier, a deputy Party leader in Berlin. In July 1930, Daluege in accordance with Hitler’s wishes, resigned from the SA and joined the Schutzstaffel (SS) with the rank of SS Oberführer in 1932 He became an NSDAP delegate in the Prussian State Parliament and in November 1932 was elected to the Reichstag for the Berlin Ost electoral district, a seat he retained until 1945. At the same time Hermann Goring moved him to the Prussian Ministry of the Interior where he took over the Police force in 1936.  In the same year he was appointed by Wilhelm Frick, the Chief of the Ordnungspolizei, (ORPO) which gave him administrative authority over most of the uniformed police in N.S. Germany.  He commanded the Ordnungspolizei for the rest of the war reaching the rank of SS Obergruppenführer und Generaloberst Der Polizei. Following the British murder of Reinhard Heydrich, Daluege also served as the deputy Protector of Bohemia and Moravia.  He had won the following awards:

The Knights Cross with swords
The German Cross in silver
The Golden N.S. Party Badge
The 1918 Iron cross 2nd Class
The War Merit Cross with Swords
The wound badge (1918)
The Anschluss Medal (1938)
The Sudentenland Medal with Prague Bar
The Memel Medal (1939)
The NSDAP long SVCE Award in silver (1941)
The Cross of Honor 1929
The SS Totenkopf Honor ring (1939)
The Danzig Cross (1939) the Order of the Crown of Italy--Grand Cross (1938)

Much more can be seen on the internet about Daluege but most of it is purposely derogatory to a great extent. It is simply the victors who write their own history, but are in good position to write whatever they want about the vanquished. Kurt Deluege was hanged by the Czechs for war crimes. He was dragged, hardly conscious to the makeshift gallows and they managed to strangle him to death for 25 minutes. These are the same Czechs who perpetrated horrible atrocities against the German soldiers and civilians after the wars conclusion. Go to Google and search: The Atrocities and crimes committed against Germans in and after 1945. The author refers to horror upon horror!  You will be sickened if you are at all human. “War is war!” But post-war killings are revengeful vicious murder usually perpetrated by the lowest fowl criminals imaginable!

Now, as to the document, it is a Communiqué sent to Reinhard Heydrich as Chief of the R.S.H.A and SD regarding problems in personal staffing of the SS. Only in Daluege’s high official capacity would he dare to criticize the Reichsführer SS Heinrich Himmler and that is just what he is essentially doing. It is also a good thing that Daluege and Heydrich were close friends. Otherwise, this would have been a very dangerous letter had it been passed on to Himmler. This makes it a very important and historically important communication. It is translated thusly:

Dear Heydrich!

I have read your letter with interest and I fully agree with your doubts.

I have written to SS Gruppenführer Wolff recently and I have sent in my complaint, that this mess in the personal staffing of the SS, can not go on as it is, and my reason given was, that the Wehrmacht only needs one Personal office, where as the SS has so many, they come up like mushrooms in a field. Every office has its own leader who makes decisions favoring his own needs. Plus the fact is, that the Reichsführer during visits to other Offices of the SS promotes people without informing us until we get the papers and have to accept a “fait accompli.”

Here is an example: SS Oberscharführer Wunsch of the SD was promoted (on site) recently by our Reichsführer on a visit to Elsass to Untersturmführer without informing the SS Personnel office.

Only the SS Oberabschnitt Westmark was informed and they in turn wrote to us that we should transfer SS Untersturmführer Wunsch to the Head office of the SD Westmark.

Dear Heydrich, I can obviously not advise you to alter these Orders but we must make sure that things like that go though the official instances, unless the SS Chief of personal  is with the Reichsführer SS wherever he goes only then can I be held responsible and report myself to the Reichsführer SS.

The document is measured in two parts for two pages (7" x 10" on the part 1 and 7" x 6 ½" on part 2. The beautiful frame measures 30" x 20".  There are a couple of fine images of Deluege mounted as well. The framing was done in Museum approved preservative methodology using special acid free material and non-glare glass that repels sun damage. This is a document worthy of all these preservation techniques. A rare and prodigiously important piece of contemporary history of a turbulent time.

Large Silver Platter Presentation to Reinhard Heydrich 1934 (Item PER 4-11 & POL 3-3 & SS 35-4)

DESCRIPTION: This is absolutely the finest Heydrich piece ever made available for the historic implications are ‘stupendous’ and far reaching. The year 1934: until that year the Geheime-Staatspolizei (Secret State Police) was a private organization (Gemeinschaft) within the Department 1-A of the Prussian Sate Police.  It was established by Hermann Goring after Hitler gained power in 1933. In 1934, Goring under pressure from Heinrich Himmler agreed to grant control of this the aforementioned Dept 1-A to the SS. In 1936 Reinhard Heydrich became head of the Gestapo as it had by then been named in the transformation in 1934. In the course of the changeover to the more effective Gestapo, Heydrich had worked diligently with Heinrich Muller and others to modernize the units and bring them to speed as the most competent and efficient criminal investigative agency in the world. During World War II, the Gestapo was expanded to around 45,000 members. Prior to 1934, Reinhard Heydrich was the Police Chief of Bavaria and Head of the Sicherheitsdienst- SD from 1931 to 1942 and head of the Gestapo from 1934 to 1936. The writing engraved on this wonderful piece presented to Heydrich as SS Gruppenführer reads in grateful thanks for his leading talent in the beginning of our organization in 1934 and it is from his loyal police officers. Heydrich was an SS Gruppenführer, in 1934 he was promoted to this austere rank after the ‘Night of the Long Knives’ June 30, 1934. So it is obvious that this platter was given during the most crucial time of N.S. destiny. The men presenting it called themselves a Gemeinshaft (organization) because the presentation was obviously made during that time that the change was being accomplised from Department 1-A to Gestapo. The platter is huge and entirely crafted from genuine silver (835 grade) and so marked with the moon, crown, and eagle logo as required. The platter measures 18" x 13 ½" .  The edges are turned as fine German dining regulations demanded for elegant place settings. Below the eagle is the engraved statement ‘Meine Ehre Heisst Treue’ My Honor is Loyalty. The catch phrase of the SS and SS Police. These four words personify the SS organization and all of their agenda. It would be a real task to find something that is more historically important or more beautiful than this piece. The hand engraved eagle is the work of a master artist with each and every feather in minute detail. There were many eagles symbolizing various organizations within the Third Reich but none can compare with this special rendering for sheer glorious elegance. The engraving is so deep that you could slide your fingernail below each and every breast feather. This is National Socialist art personified !

Framed Document Signed by Dr. Wilhelm Frick (Item PERS 4-12)

DESCRIPTION: This is a document of promotion for an official of the National Fire Department to higher office. It is ordered by and signed by Dr. Wilhelm Frick who was the Minister of the Interior in the 3rd Reich political apparatus. He joined the NSDAP in 1925. He took part in the Nov 9th. Putsch and at that time he was the Director of the Munich Kriminalpolizei.  He was arrested and imprisoned for the Putsch. He served 15 months and was dismissed from his police position. He was elected to the Reichstag in May 1924.  He then rose to posts of leadership in the NSDAP becoming Fractionsfuhrer in 1928. Frick was appointed Minister of the Interior and of Education in the state government of Thuringia during 1930-1931, being the first NSDAP member to hold any ministerial post in pre-Nazi Germany. When Adolf Hiter came to power in January 1933, Frick was appointed Minister of the Interior of the Reich, one of only three N.S. Members in the original Hitler cabinet. His power dramatically increased as a result of the Reichstag fire and the enabling Act of 1933. He was responsible for drafting many of the “Gleichschaltung” laws that consolidated the N.S. regime. Frick was intstrumental in passing laws restricting Jews from their usual directions within the system (the Nuremberg Laws). Frick took a leading part in Germany’s re-armament in violation of the terrible vindictive Versailles Treaty.  He drafted laws introducing universal military conscription and extending the military service law to Austria after the Anschluss as well as to the annexed regions of Czechoslovakia. He actually tried to restrict the widespread use of “Protective Custody” orders that were used to send people to concentration camps but this was blocked by Heinrich Himmler. Frick's power was greatly reduced in 1936 when Adolf Hitler named Heinrich Himmler Chief of all German Police forces. Frick was appointed then to the post of Protector of Bohemia and Moravia in Prague. At the end of the war, Dr. Frick was arrested and tried before the “Star Chamber Court” at Nuremberg.  For further information on the 45-46 Nuremberg Trials go on Google and type in Nuremberg the crime that will not die.  You might find it interesting!At least it give another perspective. Dr. Frick was executed in grisly manner, strangling slowly.  His last words were “long live eternal Germany!”  The Frick document measures 26" x 17 ½" with its frame . The actual document is measured at 8" x 11".  The document and the pictures are expertly matted and museum preservation methods have been used throughout. Non-glare museum glass was used.  This is a very significant historical treasure at a very reasonable price.

Card Case Having Belonged to Reichsprotector and SS Obergruppenfuhrer Reinhard Heydrich  (Item PERS 4-14 & SS 35-11)

DESCRIPTION: This is an absolutely unique piece of Third Reich Art. It is a wooden box that would be for the purpose of containing the personal calling cards of none other than SS Obergruppenfuhrer Reinhard Tristan Heydrich, who in 1941 was appointed Stellvetretender Reichsprotektor in the protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. Contrary to Orthodox-doctored history, he was actually well liked by the folk of the Czech lands especially when he effectively suppressed the black market. Food rations and pensions were increased and unemployment insurance was established for the very first time under Heydrich. Conditions in Prague were quite peaceful and industrial output soared. Because of his astute leadership and popularity, Hitler was considering naming the young man the German governor of Liberated Paris. He was so popular that the British War Lords felt that he had to be eliminated because it just wouldn’t do to have a ‘Good Nazi’ on the European scene. It could be disastrous to the agenda of the allies, so a plan was fomented to train two and more potential murderers from the Czech government in exile.  They were trained by the British Special Operations Unit. They were parachuted into Czeckslovakia on 28 December 1941, dropped from a Halifax of the 138th Squadron of the RAF. The operation of this murder plot almost failed but it succeeded after all and the SS Reich-Protector was killed in the line of duty just as so many men who resisted the rule of Britannia were destroyed by stealth and backstabbing. This has been the way of the rulers of the Island Empire, Rule Britannia! By any means plausible and possible, fair or foul!

The box seems to be made using holly-wood with ivory inlay; it measures 4 ½ x 3 ¼ inch in size. The case compartment measures about 2 ¾ by 3 inches. German calling cards of that period were smaller than the American or British ones. The top section of the case has an ivory eagle in classic pose. The body of the case has a striking pose of European man killing the snakes of Bolshivism and certain ethnic minorities who would destroy the “Heilege Reich.” At the left of the warrior as we view him is the runic SS and to the right the Sonnenrad (Sun Wheel Swastika.). The symbols of the great European struggle against the evil forces of a primeval darkness that threatened to take over all of the European homeland of the Aryans, Teutons and kindred! A similar motif can still be seen at the back outside wall of the former office of Julius Striecher in Munich even today, unless the culture destroying Vandals of government have wrecked it and demolished it. It was still there in 2007 while we were there. This is a meaningful relic of a very turbulent time, a time that is under historic scrutiny today finally due to the advent of the internet and certain history scholars who feel that history should be carefully examined and brought up into accordance with the facts, and many will be amazed when the propaganda veils start to fall and certain truths emerge. The old canard of the victors of a war writing the history of any war all the while lauding their side and demonizing the losers no longer completely holds sway!  This magnificent historical important relic is priced very reasonably by the consigner.

Silver Cigar Box Presented to SS Obergruppenfuhrer Reinhard Heydrich (PERS 4-15 & SS 35-20)

DESCRIPTION: This is a wonderful presentation item from an anonymous presenter. It is a silver box with silver and enamel decoration very professionally accomplished, although we do not know if it was actually presented or personally commissioned by the Reichsprotector himself. The markings do not seem to be German so we logically presume that a jeweler either made it from an existing box or else made it from scratch. The jeweler may have been Czech; the markings are shown in our attached pictures show the marks clearly. The piece measures across the top 6 ½ x 5 and it is 1 inch deep, the box lid has a depiction of Arno Breker’s famous statue “Die  Partei”. This was part of a pair of heroic figures that flanked the entrance to Hitler’s New Reichs Chancery. This one was Brecker's monumental statue representing the spirit of National Socialism. However, the statue in front of the entrance of the New Reichs Chancellery holds the torch in the opposite hand. Why? The figure of this Aryan man is flanked by 4 symbols:

No. 1 The enameled Swastika shown in a silver wreath.
No. 2 the initials R.H. Reinhard (Heydrich) in classic Roman script
3. In the bottom right you can see the enameled SS runes encircled in a silver wreath and in the left bottom corner is a runic symbol used by Heydrich on his airplanes.

During WWII the planes flown by Heydrich all had this symbol -- it was an ancient German runic character that stood for “Victory”. He flew a BF 110 in the fighter group 11. J6 77 in Norway in 1940. He had the rank of Major in the Luftwaffe. So you can see this symbol hereon the box in fine silver art work. Engraved on the front of the box are the words “Die Ewige Flamme Brent in Unserem Herzen Fur all Zukunft (translated: The eternal flame burns in our hearts for all the future). This alludes directly to the flame of the torch that is held in the hand of the Breker figure depicted in the top design and of course the flame represents the belief in the N.S. agenda. It all ties together beautifully in this exceptional relic of a very turbulent era. SS Obergruppenfuhrer Reinhard Heydrich, in my opinion was not murdered by the British with their Czech assassins because he was a” bad man”. No, he was foully murdered precisely because he was too good! The British War lords decided it was imperative to kill him because quite frankly his popularity was spreading and European people were starting to see very definite positives in the National Socialist agenda. He enjoyed the support and was well liked by the more decent of the Czech citizenry because he performed so many acts of charity and social progress in Czechoslovakia while he was Reichs Protector of Bohemia and Moravia and as President of the European Interpol, he brought justice to many arch criminals that had been amassing fortunes while exploiting the Sudeten and Czech people. He brought in the Red Cross for the first time. Yes, he was merciless to the enemy. He was after all a Policeman -- a Super Policeman. He was a strict authoritarian and dedicated to the rule of law and order.

Yes it is very regrettable what was done to the town of Lidice.in the aftermath of his murder. That was inexcusable but as the American military has often stated “War is Hell” and to make the omelet you must break a few egg! Also, the Czech and Yugoslav partisans were the most evil lot that the Devil ever sent to earth!  The tortures and ghastly murders perpetrated against Germans both soldiers and innocent civilians were fresh in the minds of the revengeful combat soldiers who executed Lidice. The killing of SS Obergruppenfuhrer Heydrich was as they envisioned it “the last straw”. Make no mistake, he was very much admired by his “Band of Brothers,” the SS. I hope to God the world never again sees as horrible a conflict as the European continent had to suffer in WWII (a completely fratricidal war!).

This cigar box was found in Prague and had been looted by Russians or by Czechs. It was later sold to a German part time antique dealer and eventually made its way to the Stuttgart Waffen-Borse where we managed to purchase it. We feel it was taken from either Heydrich's country villa at Panenske Blezany or his office at Prague Castle. Many other items were looted at both locations and we have had some other of these items in the recent past, but nothing so wonderful as this one. I believe it says it all!  The whole agenda and mythos of the N.S. movement and the ideals of Reinhard Heydrich are at least partially revealed in art form. This has to be the epitome of SS items. No other item could be more historically important in WWII relics.

PRICE: $12,000.00 It has been decided to reduce this great item to the super-reduced price of $8,500.00 (a reflection of the times!). This now becomes a super bargain!

DESCRIPTION: This is a great little sculpture mounted on a marble base. It is highly detailed and an excellent likeness of the Great War leader who later became the first post-war president of Germany. He later appointed Adolf Hitler Reich’s Chancellery. There is a narrative about this much loved and respected leader in several of our pages and the Kaiser Reich section on bronzes and statuary page 4 at KSTATUE 4-2 and also on the Third Reich page 14-1. He was known as the “Father of the Fatherland” and Germany’s greatest war hero. Please do read about him on our pages at the WWI section. This is a fine period bust and a great historically important item. Small but dramatic! The bust with its plinth stands 4 3/4th inches high and the bust alone is 2 1/2 inches high; it is signed Burajze. The medals and birds nest shoulder boards and stand out in amazing detail and the face is remarkably life-like. The artist certainly captured the spirit of the grand old Marshal.

Japanese Ambassador Oshima’s Gift to the Wife of N.S. Gauleiter Lauterbacher (Item PERS 4-17 & JAP 3-9)

DESCRIPTION: Baron Hiroshi Oshima was a General of the Imperial Japanese Army and later ambassador to Berlin in National Socialist Germany during WWII. He was the son of a prominent Japanese family; his father, Oshima Kenichi, was the Minister of War from 1916-1918. Oshima graduated from the 18th class of the Imperial Japanese Academy in 1906 and from the 27th Class of the Army War College in 1915. He served as a military attaché to Budapest and Vienna from 1923-24. After his return to Japan he was made Commander of the 10th Field Artillery Regiment form 1930-31. In 1934 Oshima became Japanese military attaché in Berlin with the rank of Colonel; he spoke perfect German and soon was befriended by Joachim Von Ribbontrop, Hitler’s Foreign Policy advisor.  Oshima’s importance for the Fuhrer during his service can be seen in the fact that following the conclusion of the anti-Comintern pact, the US Ambassador in Japan Joseph Crew estimated that the agreement was pretty much the result of Oshima’s doing without the participation of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.  Under Ribbentrop’s guidance, Oshima met privately with Hitler in the fall of 1935. With the full support of the N.S. leadership and the Imperial Japanese Army General Staff. He progressed rapidly while in Berlin obtaining the rank of Lieutenant General and being officially appointed Ambassador to Berlin in October 1938 according to official sources and presented at the Nuremberg Star Chamber “trials” in 1945.

During his early months as Ambassador he was plotting the assassination of Stalin through Russian agents that were sympathetic to the N.S. cause. In a conversation he had with Heinrich Himmler on January 31, 1939 he expressed the hope that a German-Japanese cooperation in the field of intelligence would lead eventually to the disintegration of the Soviet Union. His ideas were sound and had they played out the present world would have been quite different. Oshima’s close relationship with Hitler and Von Ribbontrop gave him unparalleled access for a foreigner to German war plans and national policy. The left leaning author and yellow rag journalist William L. Shirer in referring to Oshima’s so-called anti-Communist fanaticism said that Oshima was “more Nazi then the Nazis.”  It is true that he was very much admired by the officials of the National Socialist scene -- he was honest, forthright, outgoing and considered brilliant. He was a constant guest at the Ribbontrop estate and visited with Reichsmarshal Herman Goring at Karinhalle many times. He often was invited to the homes of the other Party and military officials and they considered him to be the personification of the ‘Valiant Samurai” of old. His honor code seemed to harken back to the saga of the warrior class of old Japan. N.S. Gaulieter Hartmann Lauterbacher of Sud Hanover who had been a highly placed Hitler Youth Leader and member of the Allgemeine and Waffen SS was particularly fond of Oshima and they attended many diplomatic corps events together; the Gauleiter and his wife often entertained the ambassador and some of his entourage in their home. The Gauleiter knew that Oshima had a penchant for fine blooded horses and in December, 1941 while the war was in its second year going on its third, Gauleiter Lauterbacher presented to Ambassador Oshima a fine thoroughbred riding horse. Oshima was highly appreciative of this and sent him a letter from the Japanese embassy in Berlin thanking him for the horse and a notice of appreciation for flowers sent by Lauterbacher's wife. The original letter that is dated 36 December 1941 is offered here. This was the same month of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The letter reads translated - - -

‘My dearest Gauleiter, 
After receiving the wonderful flowers from your dear wife I take the liberty to send a small present and beg you to present this to your wife with my best wishes. I do realize that it represents a post Festival (after Christmas) present but I would be honored if your wife accepts the small present.

The horse you so kindly presented me with has now found a home at the Tattersall “Tiergarten.”  I do ride it often and think of your generosity always.  I am sure you will like to hear that the horse is in the best of health.

I hope you had a pleasant and I send you and your wife my heartfelt congratulations and happiness for the New Year. My best wishes from my home to your home. Dear Gauleiter. Oshima

*The reference to the Tattersall Tiergarten refers to a Park in Berlin similar to Central park in N.Y. where they had a bridle path used for equestrian riders. Oshima jests a bit when he refers to the Tattersall “Tiergarten” This would be a zoo.

 The Gift - This is a very charming what-not box in 800 silver. It is a very beautiful little box that has a distinctly oriental look over all, with a Japanese version of the Greek key pattern running all around it in a band that surrounds its middle section and around that between the various sections of the Greek keys. A floral leaf design also in Oriental style can be observed. In the center of the top is a badge or escutcheon that looks like the Japanese Order of the Rising Sun surrounded by once again the Greek key design. On the front section there are the engraved words: An Frau Lauterbacher in Dankbarkeit und Respekt’- Oshima I Januar 1942.  Translated –“To Frau Lauterbacher in gratitude and respect. Oshima 1st January 1942.” Obviously he wrote on Dec. 30th but made the gift in the first of January 1942. On the back of the box are the words: Ein Gluckliches Neues Jahr ( A Happy New Year!). This is a great historical relic very important yet beautiful in its simplicity and artistic style.

Signed Photograph of Japanese Ambassador Hiroshi Oshima (Item PERS 4-17c; JAP 3-9c)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a very nice photo on cardstock of General Hiroshi Oshima. In the entries seen above you can see much more information on the man about whom it was said was “more Nazi than the Nazis.” He signed this card in full across the top. The scene portrays his greeting German General Ludwig Beck during field exercises in 1936. I personally liked this man (Oshima) and the proud, heroic traditions of the ancient Samurai were in his entire persona. A man’s Man!!! Unfortunately, General Ludwig Beck, seen in the photograph, was implicated in the July 20, 1944, assassination plot to murder Adolf Hitler and was summarily executed after a failed attempt at committing suicide. The plot was foiled by a young German officer named Otto-Ernst Remer of the Grossdeutschland Division. There is a stamp of the photo studio on the back as are some notes penciled in in German about Oshima and Beck (“erschossen 20. Juli ‘44”-“shot dead 20 July ’44”). Photo measures 5 x 3 ¾ inches.

High Dinner Carving Set Having Belonged to Joachim Von Ribbentrop (Item PER 4-18)

DESCRIPTION: This is undoubtedly a historic treasure but in my opinion it invokes a sad story overall. This is the story of the above mentioned carving set but also a small capsule review about the life and career of this handsome, soft spoken gentleman and aristocrat.  He was born 30 April 1893. He was murdered most foully in 1946 after the infamous Nuremberg tribunal found him guilty of war crimes.  They were dubious if not rigged charges.  The American executioner Sargent Woods (Serpent that he was) deliberately botched the execution and the rope throttled the former foreign Minister for 20 horrible minutes before he expired. Before this and after being escorted up the 13 steps to the waiting noose.  He was asked if he had any final words and he calmly said, “God protect Germany, God have mercy on my soul, my final wish is that Germany should recover its unity and for the sake of peace there should be understanding between east and west. “  As the hood was placed over his head by the demon monster Woods Ribbentrop added ‘I wish peace to the world. This was the final chapter to the story of a brilliant man whom historians today portray as a man who yearned for world peace as did Rudolf Hess and others.  We will not in this limited narrative tell the whole story of this remarkable man, much can be found on the world wide web but 98% of this information can be attributed to the old adage “The victors write the history.” Rather than repeat the words of the totally hamstrung defense council and rather than show the positive aspects of the man Von Ribbentrop we instead will summarily indict the whole Nuremberg Star Chamber Court that sat in judgment against the N.S. defendants while fully realizing that they and their respective countries could have and should have been indicted and jailed for equal war crimes as were drawn up for this unlawful procedure. It is positively appalling that the Criminal Empire of Soviet Russia could sit in judgment when their heinous crimes in gigantic scale would make Adolf Eichmann blush in inadequacy. No, we instead would direct the attention of the reader to a web site that can be gained by entering the words, “Reconsidering the Nuremberg Trials”.  There you will see the official statements of famous American legal minds, military leaders plus a few foreign academics. We quote for now John f. Kennedy: ”The war crimes trials were a reversion to the ancient practice of the savage extermination of a defeated enemy and particularly its leaders. The precedent set by these trials will continue to plaque their authors.” (Profiles in Courage pages. 189-190).

The Nuremberg enterprise violated ancient and fundamental principles of justice. The victorious Allies acted as prosecutor, judge and executioner of the German leaders.  The charges were created especially for the occasion and were applied only to the vanquished defeated, starving, prostate Germany and the Germans were in absolutely in no position to oppose whatever the Allied occupation powers demanded. If I could take the time and space to write the defense of Joachim V. Ribbentrop, I could certainly clear up many misconceptions and purposeful slanders.

Joachim was born in Wesel Renish Prussia. He was educated in private schools in Germany and Switzerland, he was fluent in both French and English and he lived in Grenoble, France and London at various times before traveling to Canada in 1910 during a summer vacation. He fell in love with a wealthy young socialite from a Montreal banking family which led him to choose Canada as his choice of destination. He constantly wandered across North America hoping to fill his inquiring mind with knowledge of its people who for the most part were of good Germanic or Anglo-Saxon stock.  He held down jobs as banker, engineer, and as a journalist in N.Y. City and Boston he then returned to Canada and set up a small business in Ottawa importing German wine and champagne.  In 1914 he competed for Ottawa’s famous Minot ice skating team participating in the Ellis Memorial trophy tournament in Boston in February.  When World War One began, Ribbentrop left Canada which is part of the British Empire and was at war with Germany as of August 4th, 1914 for the neutral United States. He sailed from Hoboken New Jersey on 15 August 1914 on the Holland America ship named the Potsdam bound for Rotterdam.  He then returned home and enlisted in the 125th Hussar Regt.  He served on the eastern front but was later transferred to the Western Front. He earned a commission and was awarded the Iron Cross in 1918

1st Lieutenant Ribbentrop was stationed in Istanbul Turkey as a staff officer. During his time in Turkey, he became friends with another Staff officer named Franz Von Papen.  In 1919 he was married to Anna Elisabeth Henkell daughter of a wealthy Champagne producer from Wiesbaden.  They married on 5 July 1920 and Ribbentrop traveled across Europe as salesman of fine wines.  He and his wife had five lovely children.. In 1926 Ribbentrop was introduced to Adolf Hitler as a man who “Gets the same price for German champagne as others get from French champagne!  By now he was well known as being a successful businessman who had many foreign connections. He was introduced to the National Socialists by the SA leader Count Wolf-Heinrich Von Heldorf whom Ribbentrop had served with in the 12th Torgau Hussars in the First World War  He joined the National Socialist German Workers Party on May 1st 1932 at the urging of his wife who herself joined the NSDAP at the same time.  In the summer of 1932, Ribbentrop began his political career when he offered to be a secret emissary between the Chancellor, Ribbentrop’s old war comrade Franz Von Papen and Hitler in Jan 1933. His offer was taken up by Hitler and Von Papen.  The rest of the story is long and involved with intrigues, secret meetings, and machinations with various auspicious motivations. In this he was no different than any other countries diplomats.  He became Adolf Hitler’s favorite foreign policy advisor enjoying very close relationship with his Fuhrer although tremendous jealousy was felt from other top N.S. officials.

Ribbentrop quickly learned that Hitler always favored the most radical solution to any problem and accordingly tendered his advice in that direction.  In 1933, he was given an honorary SS officer rank of SS Standartenfuhrer. Ribbentrop began his work as an unofficial diplomat in the summer of 1933 with a series of visits to Paris including audiences with the French Premier Edouard Daladier. In the n summer 1933 Ribbentrop tried unsuccessfully to arrange a secret meeting between Daladier and Hitler.  When Ribbentrop persisted in trying to set up the meeting that might have averted the 2nd World War Daladier told him that “I live under a regime which does not allow me to move as freely as does Herr Hitler” in the years preceding the war Ribbentrop visited the courts of many countries with the express intention of avoiding a bloody conflict as he had personally witnessed in the first World War.  He struggled unceasingly to bring about a peaceful solution to the many problems that at that point were absolutely explosive. The story from that point is long and involved. He was the person most involved in bringing the Berlin, Tokyo, Rome Axis together and the anti-Commintern Pact between Germany and Japan.  The England that he like Hitler loved and respected was now controlled by a select cadre who were English in most cases only because thy carried British passports. Ribbentrop hoped that the England which he hoped to collaborate with was the England of the aristocrats who were the real stuff of ‘Rule Britannia” but now a cartel of ‘different’ folk had taken over. The Brits that Ribbentrop had managed to bring to Germany were a mélange of aristocratic ‘Germanophiles’ such as Lord Londonderry and former Prime Minister David Lloyd George in 1936, George Lansbury and Lord Allen, Lord Lothian, Lord Rothermore and other high class notables But neither Hitler or Ribbentrop knew or sensed that the aristocrats influence had now disappeared and a much more devious and sinister den of ‘Germanophobes’ had triumphed!  They who basked in hatred of all Germany represented and were sworn to do all in their power to bring her down ‘The Churchill gang!”  Now held sway. Germans historically are a trusting lot and are completely innocent and unfortunately very naïve in their trusting of other people and nationalities. This is the root cause that ended up with Germany losing the 2nd World War.  Had Hitler loosed the whirlwind immediately after the complete and total defeat of the British and French at Dunkirk, the probability of there being no 2nd World War would have been possible. Operation Sea Lion should have commenced and with England invaded successfully at that time an accord would have followed and together Germany and England could have and would joined in the crusade against the Soviet menace. One of the many dreamed up indictments against Von Ribbentrop at Nuremberg is that he more than any other pleaded with Hitler to pursue this important mission. In other words he was indicted for advice that would have avoided more than fifty million dead at the end of the horrid war that ensued. Of course there will be criticism of this statement but then critics are like Eunichs in a harem; they know how it is done, they have seen it done every day but they’re unable to do it themselves.  I step up to the plate and express my historical opinions “though Hell should bar the way”! And my readers know that and most respect me for it.

So enough of the history lesson for now maybe Lord willing I will write a book on the German ambassador that will be a revisionist study for sure. He remains for me my favorite National Socialist personally deserving of a much better rap than he has been given by the orthodox journalists He was not merely a diplomat he was an adventurer personified. Perhaps his loyalty to the Fuhrer and Germany can be summoned up with his statement when in prison, ‘Even with all I know if in this cell Hitler should come to me and say do this! I would still so it.”

And, now...The Carving Set. This consists of a carving knife, an accompanying meat fork and knife sharpener, fitted with grips of genuine red stag and the metal parts are in 800 fine silver.  The set was evidently taken with other loot by neighborhood looters in 1945 from the Castle that Ribbentrop acquired in 1939 this was Schloss Fuschi. Besides being a castle like formation it was a hunting lodge that was near Salzburg. It dated from the 15th century. Together with its estate and village it occupies a breathtaking situation on an Alpine lake and was only 40 minutes’ drive from Hitler’s retreat at Obersalzberg. Fuchi had a spacious and alluring dining hall where he would entertain guests from all over the world (Looted By Neighbors). Yes.  This as we have previously stated was rather common practice at the end of the war.  The townspeople that lived in the vicinity of Hermann Göring’s Veldenstein castle completely emptied it of possibly thousands of personal items when they were sure that The Reichsmarshal was not going to return rather than let these things fall into the hands of the American’s or even worse the Russians. The same applied here at Fuchi and that basically was how the carving set came to be discovered. The castle is now a grand hotel and resort and we recently stayed there and when one of the hotels employees was alerted to what we collected and sold he put us in contact with an elderly gentleman who with a fine translation job performed by our German colleague decided to sell the magnificent set to us and we were elated to be able to buy it.and that is how it ended up here at Germania and we are proud to offer it to the collecting pubic once again.  It is a stunningly beautiful set and it is still in just about mint condition each of the parties who retained it for a time know its importance and thank goodness kept it wrapped in personalized linen table napkins form the castle. We never received the Ribbentrop embroidered napkins but of course they would fade in insignificance next to the carving set.

The end caps of each piece is a beautiful escutcheon or insignia depicting the national eagle emblem that rests upon a globe this reflected Ribbentrop’s office as Reich’s Foreign Minister.  The West Point Military Museum displays his service tunic with this insignia on the sleeve, displayed there along with Herman Görings marshal’s baton and other personal items. They are shown there as trophies similar to the way South American Jivaro headhunters show grisly tokens of their prowess in savagely slaughtering their enemies. Incredibly the knife still retains its original sharpness. One can slice through a sheet of paper in one fell swoop without resistance. The steel is the fine (Solingen Steel) there is no company name on the pieces. This is in keeping with the fact that early in the Reich the officials did not want to show any company preference that is why chained SS daggers were not company marked.  Later it just didn’t matter.  But during the Four Year plan it figures that this would be the case, In order to avoid the accusation of favoritism.  Then there is another possibility and that the Reich’s foreign Minister had them contracted with a Sheffield English firm to turn them out.  This would be entirely possible in the fact that in his quest for German English business cooperation he might have had this done in Britain. Then (of course) there would be no company and name on them. How could there be?

So in any case, here is a prodigiously important treasure that is astounding in its historical value.  We know of Von Ribbentrop’s two SS leather coats that we were sent to procure from an English auction about 20 years ago.  That mission was commissioned by a once wealthy North Carolina collector who keeps them in the bowels of his castle. But other than that and the West Point loot we know of no other Ribbentrop relics that have made their way into collections.  At least not any that could compare with the beauty and significance of this set of cutlery fashioned for a modern day ‘Beau Brummel’ and a tragic figure who met his end at a notorious conclave of false judgment in revenge not only toward this man but against his nation and its people. However, what goes around eventually comes around as President Kennedy intimated. So far the only pleasant thing that comes up is the revelation that the pudgy ugly little piece of planetary bacilli known as Sargent John Woods was later accidently electrocuted when he came into contact with a high voltage wire while being deployed in the Marshal Islands -- his Grave is unknown (obviously!). May the bastard be walking the hot coals as we write this.

Knife and Fork Having Belonged to the Dining Service of Ambassador Joachim von Ribbentrop (Item PERS 4-18a)

DESCRIPTION: This knife and fork were part of a sale in 1950 of items that were looted by GIs or by the neighbors of the Ribbentrop’s who did not want to see the Americans steal all of the items stored there and most everything taken by these neighbors was eventually returned to Frau Ribbentrop after she returned from the denazification process administered by the ‘good’ Germans and their American and British “advisors.” Frau Ribbentrop did not accept any items that bore a swastika because she had justifiable fear of the “liberators” who had murdered her beloved husband. She believed she had not seen the last of these bandits and troglodytes, yet. So many of the items featuring the feared symbol were stashed in neighboring homes and came out in 1950 and in subsequent years.

The Knife and Fork

The two pieces of bestecke (flatware) are from the set owned by the Ribbentrop family and bear the particular eagle that the chief ambassador chose as his personal N.S. symbol. It is a bit different than the ones in the carving set seen above, but still it is the Ribbentrop eagle. The pieces were designed by Bruckmann and that was the company that produced the Hitler Reich chancellery and Berghof silverware. The pieces are signed on the tang with the Bruckmann signature and the half moon, the crown, and “925” for the silver content and then the tiny eagle that follows the silver stamps. The blade of the knife has the famous twin symbol of the J.A. Henckels Solingen Zwillingwerk. So, the pieces were made by two of the most famous names in cutlery in Germany. They measure 7 ½ inches on the fork and 8 ¼ inches on the knife. The quality is superb as befitting the table of this distinguished gentleman who was true to his family, his nation, his Führer and his God. The items offered here can be silent memorials to this brilliant and amazing man. If any saying could be uttered that would fit this N.S. loyalist it would be this one by George William Curtis: “A man’s country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle; and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.”

Book: Bohmen und Mahren June 1, 1942 Reinhard Heydrich Funeral (Item PERS 4-20)

DESCRIPTION: This is a soft cover special edition of the booklet Bohemia and Moravia covering the funeral of the SS Reichsprotector Obergruppenfuhrer SS Reinhard Heydrich, General of the Police and Sicherheitspolizei and the SD foully murdered by the cowardly Czech hit men employed by the British enemy (The Enemy of the world).  “So says this Scotsman”! And I must say at this point that I will not entertain any historically incorrect assailments from any person for my perspectives in the matter. I believe Heydrich was murdered because he was basically a strict disciplinarian but a fair administrator admired by many including responsible anti-Communist Czech citizens not because he was as his detractors say "evil incarnate". The British war mongers just felt they couldn’t countenance a man who was becoming so lauded by the common folk of central Europe and elsewhere. Can this be a good Nazi! Blimey!!!! Churchill wouldn’t hear of it nor let it be!!!! "This man must be murdered!”

Today’s revisionist historians have deeply probed the Heydrich story and found most all the negatives about him to be greatly exaggerated and the positives conveniently shoved down the black hole of yellow rag sensationalist  journalism so without further ado I will declare this. (Discussion closed!) And if some blathering forum imbecile wants to mix it up with me over it, then let’s do it “toe to toe”! Comments from cowardly “keyboard warriors” will be ignored. The reader must come to realize that history is being re-examined and brought into new realizations through academically sound revisionist probing.

Maybe the Kennedy assassination, Pearl Harbor, Martin Luther King’s murder and many other historical mysteries will emerge differently than we have been taught to believe in the near future. No dear reader, I am not a Nazi, and I love my country as Heydrich loved his. I am however a passionate truth seeker and always will be!  As the original Dr. Martin Luther said before that assembled tribunal in 1521 at Worms -- “Here I stand, I cannot do otherwise ”!

The magazine which is in perfect condition has 16 beautiful moving photographs of the funeral and services including a picture of the Führer consoling Heydrichs’ two little sons who stand on each side of Heinrich Himmler while in the background you can see in the somber assembled Victor Lutze SA staff Chef, Hermann Goring, Dr. Wilhelm Frick, Alfred Rosenberg, Freiherr Von Neurath , Generaloberst Kurt Daluege, Dr. Goebbels, and other personalities of the 3rd Reich. Other pictures show the funeral cortege. The final sad salute of Czech villagers, wounded soldiers showing their respect, Dr. Hacha demonstrates his condolences, Himmler speaks, and other observances with various personalities and the Führer's last farewell to the man he referred to as “the perfect National Socialist”. This was a man loved by his countrymen and even most decent Czechs. Hated by the dark elements of world society and admired and respected by historians who have the ability to think outside of the proverbial information box. The book also covers many more historically important items of interest such as a fascination article of the connection of Charlemagne (Karl der Grosse) to Bohemia and Moravia and an article about thoroughbred horse breeding in Bohemia and Moravia. The book is in large format 11 x 14 - about 58 pages with wonderful photographs and a poignant message that transcends the predominately spurious teaching and false perceptions as presented by orthodox historians in the “Orwellian Ministry of truth” that we still witness today.

Original Snapshot-Type Photograph of German Leaders (Item PERS 4-22)

DESCRIPTION: This is a photograph from a group that was recently released from the files of the NSKND, the forerunner of the former KGB. On the back of the photo is the stamp (barely visible) of this murderous organization in the left corner and it has another stamp from the Russian archives plus a large, penciled scribble that probably means “released.” The photograph is in the 5 by 3 format and has the ragged edges found on original snapshot (not squared as in photos for publication). The photograph shows Göring, Hitler, Raider, Field Marshal Jodel, von Ribbentrop, and General Keitel on the balcony of a government building in Berlin; probably taken about 1943 and snatched up by the Soviet intelligence units from official archives.
