THIRD REICH GERMAN HITLER YOUTH ARCHIVE

THIRD REICH GERMAN HITLER YOUTH ARCHIVE

£495.00

Description

A very nice, albeit small archive of items recently found in Germany relating too a Hitler Youth member from the Leipzig area.

The ‘centre piece’ is a 51cms X 30cms enlarged wall photograph of two HJ members, the boy to the left being the subject of the rest of the archive.

The large photograph was probably framed in its day and hung ‘with pride’ in a family home…..the two boys may be older and younger brothers, their is a facial resemblance, but this I cannot confirm.

(Their is some age and possible ink staining and marking to the image. It would display very well if reframed again).

Accompanying the photograph is the wearers uniform buckle by Assman, shooting award badge and shooting award record book. A HJ proficiency badge in miniature and his ‘Landjahr’ (Land year) record book and uniform triangle.

His HJ membership card with subscription stamps, and his Fleiger (Flying in glider) record card.

A Reichs swimming certificate and HJ information booklet.

Their are also three photo postcards of the former HJ member in army uniform in three different studio posed images.

All the official passes/membership books are well stamped by the local Leipzig party/HJ offices.

A ‘very nice’ group of items relating to the one boy/man……and new to the market. (Purchased by me from the man finding it via German house clearance).
