    NS Memorabilia

    I read this article in my local paper the other day ...


    So I've just been down to the auction rooms to take a look and here's a photo of the two flags they have for sale tomorrow. This was something of a surprise as the article had led me to believe there was only one. Here they are ...


    Unfortunately, the swastika one on the left has been despoiled by a load of writing from the US troops that took it but is still in good condition, whilst the the iron cross one is totally unmarked and in excellent condition! They seem to be made of something like baize or felt, going by the feel.

    There were a lot of spectators for these (I had to wait quite a while to get the photo!) but the piece of marble was a less spectacular item that appeared to be attracting very little interest.

    I might attend the auction tomorrow morning, just to see how much they go for

    I wonder what ever happened to the 'Blutfahne'? Yes, I am a die-hard romantic but it still has an iconic appeal to me.

    I have a couple of interesting items (an iron cross for e.g.) but I particularly collect photographs from Germany in the 30s (a window onto an ideal time ). I might post some here in the future.

    Despite my repeated attempts, I cannot get a photo to stay on here from the ImageShack hosting company (see message above ^).

    Would anyone happen to know why this is? Do they have a policy about not showing swastikas or something

    Let's have another try ...

    For those of us on a more limited budget, here are some identical flags for a mere £6.44 including postage!! Okay, so you have to sacrifice a bit of authenticity but what do you expect for that price?


    They also have a nice selection of other Third Reich flags ... interesting!

    German Court Rules Adolf Hitler Church Bell Lawful



    BERLIN (AP) – A German appeals court has rejected the complaint of a Jewish man against a town’s decision to allow a bell dedicated to Adolf Hitler to continue to hang in a church tower.


    The Koblenz state court on Wednesday upheld a lower court’s rejection of the complaint from the unidentified relative of Holocaust survivors, who argued the bell was a “mockery and ridicule of the victims of Hitler’s terror.”

    The Herxheim am Berg council voted last year to preserve the bell, which carries the inscription “Everything for the Fatherland – Adolf Hitler” above a swastika. It also announced plans to place an explanatory plaque nearby in the hope of sparking dialogue about violence and injustice.

    The Koblenz court found the response appropriate, saying the town wasn’t trying to downplay the Holocaust.


    German Court Rules Adolf Hitler Church Bell Lawful 31 Jan 2019.
    “The Koblenz court found the response appropriate, saying the town wasn’t trying to downplay the Holocaust.” Play the fantasy game.

    If they were serious they could dig up the autobahns Hitler built.

    Time Germany grew up.
