RARE ORIGINAL THIRD REICH WINTERHILFSWERK

COLLECTING CAN

COMING FROM GAU NIEDERDONAU, THE REGION WHERE ADOLF HITLER WAS BORN!

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 Reichs-mark 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. The collecting can that is offered here comes from Gau (NSDAP District) Niederdona, the Gau where Adolf Hitler was born! The can is 6-1/2 inch tall and 4-1/4 inch in diameter. The round hole is for rolled up bills and the slot is for coins.
