RARE ORIGINAL 1938 ORDER THAT FORBID SS MEN TO WATCH A COMMUNIST GLORIFYING MOVIE, SIGNED BY

REICHSFÜHRER-SS HEINRICH HIMMLER

Offered for sale is a very interesting Heinrich Himmler order, addressed to Allgemeine and VT (Waffen-SS). Himmler forbid his troops to watch the movie ‘Panzerkreuzer Potemkin’ (Battleship Potemkin) in 1938. He found the content of the movie derogatory and therefore dangerous to be watched by his SS men. The movie is about the rebellion of the sailors against their Tsarist officers and shocked audiences not only because of its communist political agenda but also because of its graphic violence. Himmler signed it in his traditional green pencil or green ink. The order is dated 12 March 1938 and copies went to all SS offices. Written underneath the Himmler signature in red pencil are the words “Schwarzes Brett bitte” which means that the order was to be displayed on the announcement board and not just filed away. At the top in black pencil it says (RSHA) Amt VI B2 which was the SD office where for example Heydrich worked at the time. There is a second signature at the top of this Himmler order which very well could be Reinhard Heydrich’s signature. We can’t confirm that but if it should turn out to be his authentic signature, the buyer will get two rare signatures for the price of one! This rare Himmler order is 8 x 8-1/2 inches. It is professionally framed together with a picture of the Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler and a copy of the advertising for the movie. Everything is professionally matted with the use of acid-free museum matting stock behind non-glare glass. A rare Himmler signed document with interesting content, beautifully presented and of course offered with full money back guarantee for authenticity.

This appears to be the signature of Reinhard Heydrich but we are unable to confirm that. In case it turns out to be his authentic signature the buyer technically buys two rare signatures for one price!
