The album shows all activities the Hitler Youth engaged in - from volunteer fund raising, camping, winter and summer sports, National Socialists parades and athletic events. The album also captures in clear detail photographs of Hitler Youth and party leaders, uniforms, edged weapons and accoutrements. All pages are assembled with the greatest of care using transparent onion skin paper to separate and protect the pages. Each page has calligraphy that describes the pictured events.

089p2 - Original Wolfgang Willrich pastel drawing of Unteroffizier Walter Mose. Wolfgang Willrich was probably the best known military portrait artist of the Third Reich. Attached to the OKH (Oberkommand der Wehrmacht) as a Sonderfuhrer in the Army's Propaganda Department, Willrich's work inspired the OKH to order that all KnightsCross winners were to have their portraits painted. This task fell on Willrich who was promoted to the rank of Sonderfuhrer (Z) Special Leader in July 1942. His portraits of Knights Cross winners were widely distributed on postcards that were printed for collectors and often used for autographed copies of the Ritterkreuztragers. This pastel shows the portrait was done in 1943. The same year the portrait was drawn. The Walter Mose (Objg., Zugfhr. Inf. Div. 13, /Jg. Rgt. 49 ) was awarded his RK on March 11, 43 and Oak Leaves Feb., 10, 44. This portrait showing Mose wearing his Knights Cross was not mass reproduced for period publication, postcards or posters making this a very rare and one-of-a-kind original. This Willrich portrait comes with an original postcard portrait of Mose and measures approximately 12 X 14 inches. $7,500. More Photos

089p3 - 1917 dated and framed studio portrait of a German "Landser" wearing his M16 helmet and World War I uniform. This photographic portrait is a wonderful black and white study of the M16 German helmet. The right facing Heer enlisted man is framed in its original period lacquered frame. The condition of the frame is superb. The reverse shows the name of the Frankfort studio and date of the portrait. I would strongly urge the collector who purchases this piece to leave it intact. Condition is excellent and ready for display. $750. More Photos
