DER MERKER

SCHÜLERKALENDER DES V.D.A.

THIS SCARCE BOOK IS THE PREDECESSOR OF THE HITLER YOUTH YEAR BOOKS FOR THE PIMPF WHO LIVED I.E. IN THE GERMAN COLONIES

For sale is a scarce yearbook for the German boys and girls who lived outside the Reich. The 4-1/2 x 6 inch, 200-page pocket yearbook was published 1926 by the "Volksbund der Deutschen im Ausland" (V.D.A.). The organization was connecting link between Germany and the Germans abroad with their headquarters in Stuttgart. When the Nazis came to power in 1933 they used this organization to bring National Socialism also to the German communities abroad and the content of these yearbooks changed. From the 1934 edition on "Der Merker" became similar in content to the Hitler Youth yearbooks for boys and girls in the Reich, only the "Merker" focused more on Nazi activities in the German colonies. A very interesting addition to anyones collection of Hitler Youth mate-rial, even though this is a "pre-Nazi era" item!

The 1926 calendar below does not yet list Adolf Hitlers birthday on April 20. Later editions, at least since he came to power, his birthday mention it.
