AS A TOKEN OF APPRECIATION

FOR DONATIONS MADE TO THE NAZI WINTER AID PROGRAM

On September 13, 1933 Adolf Hitler and Dr. Joseph Goebbels officially started the first Winterhilfswerk des deutschen Volkes (Winter Aid Program Of The German People). The goal was to collect as much money as possible to support the many Germans who still lived in hunger and poverty in the first year of National Socialist Germany. 358 million Reichsmark were collected in the first year and each year the amount of money that the German people gave was increased until it reached 680(!) million Reichsmark in the winter 1939/40. Some (or many?) said that the WHW indirectly helped to finance the war because the social welfare from the state could be cut back and the freed money could be used to rearm the country. Everyone who made a donation received a small gift in return as a token of appreciation. The WHW came up with a variety of small series of miniature books i.e. on Adolf Hitler, small plastic figurines of battle ships, fighter planes, etc.

Offered here are 10 WHW booklets on Adolf Hitler and 4 on Nazi war heroes who were awarded with the prestigious Knight's Cross. Each booklet has a size of 1-1/2 x 2 inch and contains photos by Prof. Heinrich Hoffmann. Each booklet deals about a certain subject, Adolf Hitler and the German worker, Hitler and the Nazi Movement, Hitler and the Wehrmacht, Hitler and the German youth (HJ) and Hitler in his mountains (Obersalzberg).
