DER STAHLHELM - ERINNERUNGEN UND BILDER

PUBLISHED BY ORDER OF THE FOUNDER OF THE STAHLHELMBUND, FRANZ SELDTE

The Stahlhelm, Bund der Frontsoldaten was one of the many paramilitary organizations that arose after the end of World War I in the Weimar Repub-lic. The Stahlhelm was founded at the end of 1918 partly by Franz Seldte in the city of Magdeburg. Its periodical, Stahlhelm, was edited by Count Hans-Jürgen von Blumenthal who was later hanged for his part in the failed attempt to kill Adolf Hitler on July 20, 1944. The organization attracted na-tionalistic and anti-Weimar elements and in 1930 the Stahlhelm has become the largest paramilitary organization of Weimar Germany with 500,000 members. In 1934 the Stahlhelm was renamed Nationalsozialistischer Deutscher Frontkämpferbund (Federation of the National Socialist Frontline-Fighters or N.S.D.F.B.) and integrated into the Sturmabteilung (SA), in 1935 the organization was completely dissolved by the Nazis.
