A RARE ITEM, OFFERED WITH FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE FOR AUTHENTICITY

The original, black stained oak board is 160 x 210mm or 6-3/8 x 8-1/4 inch, the plaque is 115mm or 4-1/2 inch in diameter. The plaque is quite heavy and looks like silver plated but we can't tell for sure. The artist was the well known Prof. Poertzel who also 'signed' it. A rare artifact, ready to be hung on the wall because it still has its original hanger.

Horst Ludwig Georg Erich Wessel (9 October 1907 – 23 February 1930), commonly known as Horst Wessel, was a Berlin leader of the Nazi Party's "Stormtroopers" – the Sturmabteilung or "SA" – who is best known for being made into a martyr for the Nazi cause by Joseph Goebbels after Wessel's murder in 1930.
Wessel first joined a number of youth groups and extreme right-wing paramilitary groups, but later resigned from them and joined the SA, the brown shirted street-fighting Stormtroopers of the Nazi Party. He rose to command several SA squads and districts. On 14 January 1930, he was shot in the head by two members of the Communist Party of Germany (KPD). Albrecht "Ali" Höhler was arrested and charged with his murder. Höhler was initially sentenced to six years in prison, but was forcibly taken out of jail and killed by the SA after the Nazis came to power.
Wessel's funeral was given wide attention in Berlin, with many of the Nazi elite in attendance. After his death, he became a major propaganda symbol in Nazi Germany. The march he had written the lyrics to was renamed the "Horst-Wessel-Lied" ("Horst Wessel Song"), and became the official anthem of the Nazi Party. After Adolf Hitler came to national power in 1933, the song became the co-national anthem of Germany, along with the first verse of the "Deutschlandlied", also known as "Deutschland über alles".
