Marvelous Third Reich Bust of General Field Marshal von Hindenburg (Item ART 14-1; WWI 9-11; KSTATUES 4-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is large, life-sized bust of the man known as the “Father of the Fatherland!” He was Germany’s greatest war hero and a beloved president of postwar Germany. He was born on October 2, 1847 and died on August 2, 1934. He, as the German Marshal and statesman at the age of 66, was the victor against the Russians at the Battle of Tannenberg in 1914. As Germany’s supreme commander from 1816, he and his chief of staff Eric Ludendorf rose highly in the German public’s esteem to a point that came to eclipse the Kaiser himself. All Teutonia sang his praises. He retired in 1919, but returned to public life once more in 1925 to be elected as the second president of Germany though 84 years old and in poor health. Hindenburg was obliged to run for reelection in 1932 as the only candidate that could defeat Adolf Hitler, which he did in a runoff. Then he was obliged by popular demand to appoint Hitler as chancellor in January 1933. In March he signed the Enabling Act of 1933, which gave special powers to Hitler’s government. Hindenburg died the next year after which Hitler declared the office of the president vacant and made himself head of state. For his resounding victories at Masurian Lakes in 1915, and the earlier total victory over the Russians at Tannenberg he became only slightly less the German national hero as Hermann the Liberator, who soundly defeated the Romans at the Battle of the Teutoberg Forest in the year 9 A.D. His pictures were everywhere during and after the Great War and his personality cult extended after his death during the Third Reich era. In government buildings there were oil paintings, wooden sculptures, and in very official places like museums and art galleries busts in bronze were in honored places. The journalistic trash disseminated today indicates that the aged Prussian field marshal vehemently detested the upstart Bavarian corporal who sought power in the turbulent 1930s; nothing could be further from the truth. Hindenburg saw in Hitler the only dynamic leader who could effectively curb and conquer the communist menace that was threatening to tear the fatherland asunder. Hitler had an equal if not greater respect for the elderly warrior. He always had a great admiration for German war heroes and here was one of the greatest of all! The funeral ceremony that the Führer arranged for the marshal was the grandest ever seen in Germany or, perhaps, anywhere in the western world. The monument and tomb at Tannenberg surpassed anything ever produced for a king or pharaoh. The reds tore it apart in 1945, but the remains of Hindenburg had been spirited away by the Waffen-SS before the “Mongols” would find it. The bust is spectacular and very heavy. It measures 19 inches high and with its base of marble. The base is 9 x 7 inches wide and the bust is about 8 1/2 inches wide across the front. Side view from the nose to the back of the head is 9 inches. The sculpture is amazingly not signed, but there is a diamond-shaped configuration that could be a logo stamped at the bottommost portion of the back of the neck. Here also is the date of the completion of the artwork in Roman numeral: MCMXXXIX=1939. This year was noted in history as the beginning of WWII. The bust is surely unique and possibly was part of an important display in some dignified location and looted by GIs in the ending days of the great fratricidal war 1939-1945. It is much more rare today than a Hitler bust and to some much more collectable. The imagery is strong as was the marshal. He is shown wearing the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross of the Iron Cross. Hindenburg was one of the only German war heroes of great renown to receive this medal. It was awarded only five times. So let this magnificent bust be a real commemorative in an honored place dedicated to one of Germany’s most-honored sons. “Dran, drauf, druber! Deutschland über Alles.

LARGE Equestrian Statue by Famed Female Sculptor Else Bach (Item ART 14-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is a (large) (Terra Cotta) statue of man and horse by the famous German artist Else Bach. Else attended the School of Art as a painter, but after a while changed to sculpture. Her most important teacher was the Pforzheim sculptor Emil Salm under whose tutelage she received a solid technical education in matters of sculpture of human and animal figures. Else did much traveling in the 1920s and 1930s often to zoos in the great cities. Animals were her specialty. “Bambi” is probably her best-known work. She worked with the Karlsruhe Majolika Manufacturing Firm and designed more than 50 figures for them. Later, she made action figures, groups, portraits, and busts. In 1952, a year after her death, her work went on exhibition in the Reuchlinhaus in Pforzheim. The “Man and Horse” (Mann und Pferd) is typical of the Third Reich artistic motif and characteristics. The composition and construction of this dynamic piece bespeaks of the whole agenda of NS and Fascist art--man over the elements; the superior man (Herrenvolk); man will overcome all obstacles, even the spirited animal. The theme is powerful; the action admirable. This in essence was the stated objective of art of the Third Reich. It is unknown if Else Bach ever was involved with Der Haus der Deutschen Kunst, The House of German Art, but for sure her artistic endeavors were certainly in orchestration with the whole NS ideology and artistic aplomb and direction. The statue is large and is in virtually perfect condition. Make no mistake; this is in all probability a genuine unique masterpiece by a well-known artist of the Third Reich era. Any good art gallery, museum, or highly discriminating collector or entrepreneur would do well to procure this beautiful sculpture. The measurements are 18 inches by 9 inches across the bottom of the base. And then to the top of the horse’s head, is about 16 inches and the signature is “E. Bach.” This is a great opportunity to acquire something utterly fantastic in the art world, but it also has historic importance because of the turbulent era that it was produced in.

Massive Bronze Statue of a Germanic Hunter (Item ART 14-3; HUNT 7-10; KSTATUES 4-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is a massive bronze sculpture of a Teutonic huntsman proclaiming the centuries-old announcement of the successful kill. This is a typical Germanic theme in sculpture, but we have never encountered an example this large or this fine. Here is bronze statuary at the zenith of perfection. Big? Yes. It measures 35 inches from the bottom of the base to the top of his head, and 40 inches from the bottom of the base to the tip of the hunting horn held aloft. The slain animal measures 15 inches long. The base is about 11 x 11 inches. His bow is about 30 inches long, and naturally this is a very heavy sculpture. The soft patina is excellent; no casting holes. This is an excellent bronze sculpture. It is signed “Eug. Morioton.” That would be Eugene Morioton, who worked in the 1880s in both France and Germany; an artist of note who specialized in action figures in Germanic and Grecian studies. What is depicted so dramatically is the young hunter who gives the hunter a cry of “Hallali!” This is the German hunting cry given at the end of the successful hunt. At the start of the hunt the Jäger call is “Horrido!” So “Hallali” and “Horrido” are mutually the “Waldmann’s call.” This hunter killed his prey with the bow and arrow he bears. He also has his hunting horn with which he will summon the other hunters to tell them of his success. Have you ever thought of having that one ultimate bronze sculpture; that centerpiece that you can be deservedly proud of? Here is the best! The price we offer it for would easily be triple that amount at a first-rate antique show or a Madison Avenue gallery. Here is great opportunity. Don’t miss it.

PRICE: $19,000.00; extremely reasonable!

Portfolio of the Reich Treasures at Nuremberg (Item ART 14-3a; PARTEI 3-11)

DESCRIPTION: Die Reichskleinodien (The Reich’s Jewels) is from the collection of an SS-Standarte Oberbayern. In this Bildefolge there are six color plates and 20 black-and-white pictures of the treasures of the Holy Roman Empire or "Germanic Reich," the swords of the 11th century, the orb and mace of the 1300s, the Reich's Cross, the jeweled crown of Karl the Great (Charlemagne), the Kaiser crown of the 10th century, a great painting of Karl, the great Bible from the year 1500, the biblical manuscripts, the sword of Karl the Great, the sword of empire from 1185, the Kaiser mantel, the robes, the ceremonial gloves from Palermo, the great exhibit hall for the display of these priceless relics, and last, but certainly not least, the spear of Longinius: the “Spear of Destiny.” This was the weapon thrust into the side of Jesus Christ by a Roman legionnaire: This dates from the eighth century. The 26 beautiful color images are all there, and so are the 20 black-and-white images; all are remarkably intact. There are also 15 pages of German explanatory text. The portfolio measures 9.5 x 13.5 inches and is in beautiful condition. It was printed during the era of the Third Reich by the Angelsachsen Verlag that had offices in Bremen in Berlin. Inside the front cover some scaredy-cat liberal German crossed out ”Stadt der Reichparteitag Nuremberg;” so frightened was he or she that this beautiful collection once stood in the city of the NS party rallies. After the war the Americans for some odd reason sent the collection to Austria where it is on display in the Vienna Historical Museum. Thank God they didn't get the opportunity to steal it, as happened to the treasures of Quinlinberg. It’s bad enough that the treasures were even manhandled by GIs right after their discovery. At least some intelligent officer stepped in at some point and rescued them from Freddy freeloader and G.I. Joe six-pack. On pages 53 and 54 of his otherwise great, book World War II German War Booty, by Lt. Col. Thomas M. Johnson, he shows the sickening picture of a corn-fed farm boy army lieutenant sitting in a chair with the crown of the holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne on his head, while he holds in his hand a scepter and orb of the Holy Reich. The sword of the Emperor is balanced precariously between his legs. This picture should be destroyed and another copy of it never seen again. This folio is a treasure in itself and, of course, is very rare. It is certainly worthy of inclusion in the archives of a museum collection and it is originally from a library collection; the SA library collection of the SA Sturm 5/31 Standarte Berchtesgaden. This was a subsidiary library of the SS Totenkopf Library of the Standarten Oberbayern, whose main library was purchased at auction and large remnants of that were sold at the Frankfurt, Germany book fair.

Gaulish Warrior on Horse; Art Bronze of the 1890s by Emmanuel Fremiet (Item ART 14-4; OLD 6-4; KSTATUES 4-4)

DESCRIPTION: This is a beautiful bronze executed by the famous French sculptor Emmanuel Fremiet (1824-1910). Fremiet was a nephew of Rude. His first employment was drawing animals for the Natural History Museum. His family came to Paris from the country, a love for which is apparent in his early gentle animal sculptures. As he progressed and gained more state and private commissions than he could handle, animals took a secondary role in his groups. Yet, for all the pressures to produce he must be admired for his historically important figures and for his meticulous accuracy of uniform, armor, saddle, artists, etc. He was known for monumental figure groupings that can be seen in Paris and throughout France, and works such as this Gaul warrior were also produced and edited in reduced bronze editions. Fremiet’s great works and continued popularity make these mini monuments highly valued when found today. The bronze is in perfect condition except for the reins that are there but are disconnected at the holding end. This can be a attended to very easily. The name of the statue (engraved on the base) is “Chef Gaulois,” Chief of the Gauls. The wonderful sculpture has all the boldness of the heroic stance of the warrior leader. The armor on the horse and man, the weapons, and various accouterments serve to make this a beautiful and important art treasure. The measurement is about 15 inches from the bottom of the base to the top of the Gaulish helmet and about 11 inches from the tail of the horse to this now. The chief by himself is about 10 a half inches tall in the saddle. The sculpture is clearly marked Fremiet on a plate. At the rear of the horse’s armor are the letters “SPQR.” This is evidence of fierce battles that were fought by the Germanic tribes against the legions of Rome. This is a captured war trophy taken by this Gaulish leader. His sword, dagger, and ax are all typical of the weapons of the Germanic warrior societies. This is a very worthwhile investment for the serious collector of Germanic art.

Bronze Teutonic Warrior (Battle of the Teutoberger Forest) (Item ART 14-5; OLD 6-5)

DESCRIPTION: This is a masterpiece of a bronze sculpture by a famed French artist Andre-Paul Arthur Massoulle (1851-1901) who had depicted a warrior who fought the Roman legions and the world's most important battle, the battle of the Teutoberger Forest in 9 A.D. Three legions of the Roman army under the Roman commander, Quintilius Varus, crossed the Rhine to establish new provinces deep in the heart of Germania when an alliance of German tribes, led by Arminius of the Cherusci, ambushed and utterly destroyed these invading legions. This is one of the most decisive battles of history. It was a major defeat for the Roman Empire and ended its expansion in northern Europe and, thus, was probably the greatest disaster ever suffered by the crack Roman legions XVII, XVIII, XIX. According to the Roman historian Suetonis, the Emperor Augustus, when he was told of the horrible defeat cried out, “Quintilius Varus, give me back my legions!” The Romans for all their efforts to conquer Germany between 12 B.C. and 16 B.C. met with very limited success. The brave Germans held their ground tenaciously and Roman leadership varied in quality. They could not consolidate their rule in most of Germany or establish the Elbe as their outermost European frontier. The battle was bloody; the Commander Varus took his own life by throwing himself on his sword. A few other important officers killed themselves in the ensuing combat. About 20,000 soldiers were massacred. Varus’ head was sent to Augustus; prisoners were horribly tortured in the most heinous manner. Some were burned alive, many were sacrificed on the altar in the sacred groves by the Germanic priests. For additional information on the battle go to Item OLD 3-2. Massoulle named this work “Sword of the Brave.” The size is unusually large for this artist. It measures 30 inches tall. Although he sculpted several historical bronze statues, he was famed as a medalist and his works gained many honors and he was titled and awarded the office of Knight of the Legion of Honor. He was born in Epernay (the Marne) and died in Paris at the age of 50. He was a pupil of the great sculptors Salson and Cavelie. So, he is rated very highly among European sculptors, and if the statue is an example of his work, you can readily see why. The figure is quite significant and is historically correct. The young warrior stands proudly holding the captured Roman sword while he stands upon the broken standard of the Roman legions. Traditionally, when the enemy in war was defeated the regimental or legion standard is cast to the ground and tread upon. This is an extremely dramatic statement in art. Seldom does something as fine as this appear on the art market; even in Europe.

Magnificent Rosenthal Stallion in Porcelain (Item ART 14-6)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a breathtakingly beautiful horse by the famed Rosenthal. Yes, guys, there were other great porcelain makers in the Third Reich, other than Allach!!! In fact, many of the artists worked for Rosenthal as well as Allach such as Professor Karner. This horse is by M. Herm Fritz and his name is lightly seen on the base over the Rosenthal logo. This artist was well known for his animal figural groups; however, we do not know the periods that he worked in. The Rosenthal mark looks like the logo used during the last days of the Third Reich as near as we can determine. This magnificent animal study looks much like the “Springendes Pferd,” “Jumping Horse,” seen atItem SS 27-9and the artistic presentation is really as good, in our opinion. Yes, the price of the Allach piece was significantly higher at $8,500, but for artistic excellence this Rosenthal peace rivals it to 100 percent. It's absolutely a truism that Allach was one of the finest porcelain makers Europe has ever seen, but the name “Rosenthal” also goes down in history as one of the greatest producers of porcelain crafts. The figure from its front hoof to the top of the hindmost hoof is 19 inches. From the ear to the tip of the tail is 18 inches, and from the bottom of the base to the top of his mane is 12 inches. The base is 10 inches long and 5 1/2 inches wide. The condition is 100 percent perfect. This hard-paste porcelain piece is strikingly beautiful, and if it was done after the Third Reich, it matters little. It has that Allach look, and it is genuine Rosenthal at its finest.

Two Paintings from the Munich School Style (Item ART 14-7)

DESCRIPTION: This is a wonderful pair of original paintings in oil on canvas. These are beautifully executed. They are the style that has been classified in the art world as “Münchenkunst,” or Munich Art. These are very much sought after in the art market, today. The size of these portraits is 7 1/4 x 9 1/2 inches. They are signed by P. Herzog. The subjects are a German Jäger (hunter) with pipe and double rifle showing on his shoulder. The other white-bearded gentleman is enjoying a glass of Rhine or Mosel wine. They are both happy and they could almost breathe; they are extremely well portrayed. These are sold as a set only and these are a recommended investment probably executed in the 1930s, when this type of art was at its zenith. This is true Völkunst of the “Haupstadt der Bewegung.

 Book Festschrift (Item ART 14-9; WAG 1-6)

DESCRIPTION: The great Nuremberg Opera House was built in 1905 and sits majestically in the Richard Wagner Platz in Nuremberg. It is one of Germany's most beautiful theater buildings. During the 1930s, the National Socialist government was the sponsor of the Nuremberg State Theatre. During this festive time, the main performances were of Richard Wagner's operas and of course the Meistersinger of Nuremberg was an often-repeated theme. This 68-page soft-cover book was published by the Lord Mayor of Nuremberg in September of 1935. On the opening page is a picture of a Hitler bust by Professor Ferdinand Lieberman that was presented to the Opera House followed by three pages of quotes by the Führer concerning art and culture. There is a foreword by Reich's Minister Dr. Joseph Goebbels, with his picture and another foreword pronouncement by the Gaulieter and Frankenführer Julius Streicher. There is a published review of the newly reopened building as an important addition to the enrichment of the cultural life in Germany engineered by the NS government structure. The party completely renovated the old building, and much of this effort is illustrated. There are numerous pictures of opera greats who performed on this grand opening night, which must've been a fantastic occasion. Many illustrations abound of the costuming and stage settings. The book measures 7 x 10 inches and is in remarkably good condition with a fold or two on the cover. Fine, slick paper stock was used and the photography is wonderful. One of the pictures is of the Chief Mayor Willy Liebel, whose project this was, and who dedicated so much to it. This is a rare and vastly important volume.

Great Original Painting of German Soldiers on Patrol (Item ART 14-11; WWI 10-6)

DESCRIPTION: This large painting measurers 39 x 27 inches, but with frame it is 44 x 32 inches. It is by Carl Rochling, who is listed in Davenport’s book listing known artists. Carl Rochling is listed as living 1855-1920. He is listed as a specialist in German soldiers with at least one listed as ‘SOLD’ at $2,500. This was a canvas 40 x 73 inches. This was undoubtedly a long time ago. Rochling was quite a famous artist in Germany. One of his most famous paintings was “Germans to the Front,” a scene from the Africa campaigns. His most famous painting was “Frederick the Great” at the Battle of his Zorndorf. This one was shown in many books and would be impossible to estimate the value today (do I hear priceless?). Remember, this is an original artwork by a major artist. It seems that Rochling particularly liked to illustrate the war in German East Africa during World War I. His famous painting “Germans to the Front” has pith-helmet-wearing soldiers storming up from a landing craft somewhere in the British-versus-German action. Emerging from all this struggle is the famed “Lion of Africa,” Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck. The painting, we offer is also reminiscent of the Africa campaigns from the look of the scenery that the soldiers trod through. Carl Rochling was born in Glogau near Saarbruck on 11 October 1855, and died in Berlin on 6 May 1920. He was perhaps one of the most prolific military artists of the late 19th century in Germany. In 1880 he studied under the great German historical artist Anton von Werner, where he quickly developed an interest in military subjects. The events of the Franco-Prussian War were particularly appealing to the young artist and he later produced many scenes of victorious passions in battle such as an episode in the Battle of Wissembourg and the capture of the chateau at Grisberg. Many of his pictures were used to illustrate regimental histories of the various Prussian units involved in the 1870 Franco-Prussian War. We have shown some of the other great works of this great master artist of Germanic soldiery. His name and his works will live in history, and here's a chance to actually own an original painting by this, one of the greatest German artists of all time.

Krupp Centenary Medal in Silver (Item ART 14-14; KMEDAL 4-26)

DESCRIPTION: This is a rare medal that celebrates 100 years of the Krupp dynasty from Alfred Krupp who was born in 1812 and died in 1887. He was known as the cannon king, or as “Alfred the Great,” from the time of Fredrich Krupp, 1787-1876. The family launched a small steel factory in Essen in 1811 to go on to become the greatest producer of weapons and ammunition the world has ever known. The medal struck in fine silver is oval in shape and is marked on the edge ‘990,’ the closest to ‘1000’ in pure silver that a medal could be. It has a good depiction of Alfred Krupp on the obverse, while on the reverse is the depiction of a muscular blacksmith with hammer, anvil, and a sword that he has forged. At the edges it says “1812 Alfred Krupp 1912. The ribbon is in the colors of the city of Essen. This large medal was presented during the centenary celebrations to Krupp’s leading customers plus important military and civil leaders. They are rare today as very few were struck and those that survive are in museum collections today. The medal measures 2 1/2 inches high.

A racial study from a Third Reich book;
note the similarity!

Aryan Volk Wood Carving (Item ART 14-15; AHN 4-4)

DESCRIPTION: This is a cultural item in the best traditions of the race and resettlement office Rasse und Siedlungshauptamt and that’s where it came from. There was also an Ahnenerbe connection evidently. That is what we were told by the man who sold it to us. It was possibly carved in one of the 50-odd departments within the heritage foundation so an SS connection is entirely plausible especially in light of the inscription under the figures “Unsere Ehre heisst Treue; Unser die Zukunft.” This means: “Our honor is loyalty; and ours the future.” Under this is the national German greeting “Heil Hitler.” This is very similar to the SS motto seen on the blades of their daggers. The only difference being with the word “Unsere” instead of “Meine.” The plaque is carved all out of oak. It measures 10 1/2 x 8 inches. It’s signed with “HO;” whoever that was, he was a master carver. On the back is a penciled ’12 September 1936.’ Was this the date carved or the date presented or both? The portrayal is a young man and young lady who both show the beautiful Nordic, Aryan features as would be expected in an article that was from either of these organizations previously mentioned. We cannot say enough about the carving; look to the hair, the facial structures, the nobility. The wood planchet is about an inch thick. The artist who did this had the “Treue Geist,” the “real spirit.” He has in his depiction of the loyal NS youths transcended the mediocre and mundane and reached the heights of Teutonic splendor graphically illustrating what was to be, but now we have ACDC and KISS. This is almost a spiritual object; observe it as such!

Pair of Porcelain Eagles by Heutschenreuther (Item ART 14-16)

DESCRIPTION: This is almost too magnificent for words. Heutschenreuther is one of the most famous of German porcelain producers in Germany that produced some of the very finest of china and figurative sculpture with clean surfaces and stark shapes. The company was founded by Carl Magnus Heutschenreuther, a porcelain painter previously working at the Wallendorf factory. After his death in 1845 the factory was managed by his widow Frau Johanna and her sons. From 1860 they produced luxurious and gilded porcelains with skillfully executed hand painting. Even today the Porzellanfabrik C.M. Heutschenreuther at Selb Bavaria is one of the greatest porcelain factories in Germany. The mark for C.M. Heutschenreuther is a shield with a crown over it and the initials ‘C.W.M.R.’ in the shield. C. Heutschenreuther is as above with the lion mark developed later. Heutschenreuther was a trendsetter and enabled Germany to gain an excellent reputation in the European china industry. The mark of the lion is a symbol of excellence that continued up to this day, but since 2000 it is a trademark of Rosenthal and Rosenthal bought many of the rights to the company. The eagles seen here are one of most magnificent productions ever made by the Heutschenreuther firm. We are not sure of the date of manufacture, but because Germany is spelled in English we can pretty much assume it probably is 1950s work. But the company produced practically identical figures in the years of the Third Reich. The dramatic action of the birds of prey as they dive toward a common interest—rabbit, squirrel?—is great both in beautiful color and spirit. The characterization and posturing is so lifelike and faithful as to absolute true delineation that it is incomparable to any similar figural sculpture by any other company producing such nature-inspired pieces. This set of eagles is a prize winner by far. You will be extremely proud to display them in your den or Gute Zimmer (favorite room). The piece is in beautiful condition and it is big measuring 26 inches from the bottom of the base to the top of the upper eagle’s highest wingtip. The base measures about 7 1/2 inches in diameter. The upper eagle has a measurement of 13 inches from his head to the tip of his tail feathers. The sculpture is signed ‘K. Tutter,’ whom we understand worked for both Rosenthal and Heutschenreuther for many years as the principal designer and sculptor in fine figural production. He produced both human figurines and specialized in animals. This, without any reasonable doubt, is one of his finest accomplishments and considered quite rare. It is natural beauty personified. There is a hairline crack at the bottom of the base. This could be in the firing, but we are sure it isn’t going anywhere. This is a truly magnificent porcelain figure.

Bronze Bust from the Office of the Race and Resettlement Organization (Item ART 14-17; SS 32-6)

DESCRIPTION: This is possibly one of the most important items of cultural interest that we have ever acquired. As is well known Germania International, LLC has always worked diligently to acquire and offer the most salient, preeminent items of vast historical importance to the collectors that number themselves as enthusiastic “Germanophiles.” We are just not enthused about offering army field packs, hobnailed boots, or buttons from uniforms. We love the art, the important documentation, the classic sword or dagger, and the personality items. Articles with deep social meaning also, are our forte. In this particular piece just about all our predilection for meaningful and succinct acquisition comes fully to the forefront. This is a completely unique item of artistic excellence, but also indubitably of vast meaningful substance. The essence of Nationalist Socialist ideology was the purity of race and the promotion of healthy Aryan survival and eugenics. With this in mind first and foremost the party and especially the SS moved to establish an organization within the government dedicated to these principal ideals. More than any other social ideal this stood paramount and vital to the German Reich. Thus in 1931, 2 years before Hitler came to power an organization known as Rasse und Siedlungshauptamt (RuSHA) was established. This stood for Race and Resettlement. It was designated as an SS main office in 1935. Its tasks included doing research and providing instruction on race issues, including special training courses for elite Nazi groups; making sure that SS men and their wives were racially pure; carrying out the resettlement of SS men in NS-occupied countries as part of the global NS plan for expanding the German Reich throughout Europe; and encouraging them to settle on farmlands near cities. RuSHA’s staff included many determined and industrious young men who either had medical or some other professional eligibility. Some were later promoted to senior SS positions. The RuSHA began evicting certain landowners from their home in eastern territories and settle Germans in their place in mid 1939. RuSHA offices established in the parts of Poland annexed to the Reich were in charge of confiscated Jewish- and Polish-owned land. In 1940 RuSHA came up with the plan to “Germanize” Poles who had the appropriate racial qualities. Possible candidates were screened and interviewed by “race experts and qualifications examiners.” These experts also checked out the racial authenticity of Poles who registered themselves as “ethnic Germans” (Volksdeutsche). In addition, RuSHA made plans to “Germanize” the Ukrainian people who were for the most part good Aryan stock. Walter Darré at one point was the director of RuSHA while being Reich’s peasant leader. He developed a plan for Rasse und Raum, which provided the ideological background for the NS expansive policy on behalf of the Drang nach Osten drive to the east and of the Lebensraum (surviving space theory) written of in Mein Kampf by the Führer Adolf Hitler. It was this organization more than any other NS group that was responsible for the attempt to racially purify the Germanic people and to establish a Nordic empire in the west and the east, but “Darkness has come when the light is extinguished;” make what you will of that! The bust is of a very typical German man in the “springtime of youth.” He has all the features of Aryandom. He is a fine specimen of the Nordic race. He could be an SS man, an elite German Landser (soldier), a youth leader, or rocket scientist. He is the personification of the “Master Race,” the builders of western civilization, the exponents of true virtuous art , and the marchers of inherent destiny, and Kulturtrager of the ages. The bust stands about 15 inches high. The base of wood measures 6 x6 inches and is 3 1/2 inches deep. The base, when the bronze was found, was in rather abused condition so we had it professionally repainted and it now looks great. The plaque is in genuine silver and it had turned completely black with tarnish over 60-some-odd years. We cleaned it up and it now looks great! The plaque is in scroll form and says: “Der Sieg des Ariers ist der Sieg der Menschheit.” This means: “The victory of the Aryans will be the victory of mankind.” Under this it says: “Rasse und Siedlungshauptamt Berlin 1940.” On the left of this statement are the SS runics in a circle, and on the right a swastika. The piece could not be more meaningful. It is signed by an artist whose name is engraved on the back of the neck “H. Aichele. GMÜND and SCW”? Gmünd by Tegernsee is where Heinrich Himmler had his summer residence. We believe this could be significant and it could be that the Reichsführer- himself might have commissioned a local artist in this community of Gmünd to do the honors for the RuSHA. One of the greatest artists of the Reich, Prof. Karl Diebitsch, also lived close by in that area. He was the originator of the Allach Porcelain firm. So here we have a historical treasure of the NS mythos; a tremendously important relic of the Germanic recent past; more important than any other bust offered. This unidentified youth is not more important than Hitler or the NS leaders, but he does personify the whole philosophy of Das Drittenreich and he is certainly unique.
