WANDBEHANG / TAPESTRY FOR THE
IN THE SS HOME
The 51 x 49 inch (1300 x 1250mm) tapestry was manufactured by Deutsches Heimatwerk. They made them in a variety of designs, usually using old designs as used since centuries by German farmer families . The tapestry decorated the wall of one corner of the home where the Jultruhe (Yule Chest - also manufactured by Deutsches Heimatwerk) with Julleuchter (Yule Candleholder), various SS items and the SS family book created a “sacred” place where the SS family was supposed to keep their ancestors history alive.
The motif of this SS Wandbehang (Tapestry) is a pattern of the Lebensbaum (Tree Of Life) with spreading branches and two birds. It is made of heavy hand woven wool and expertly manufactured. The bright earth tone colors are partly faded along the edges. Other than that this rare item is in very good condition and will be an important asset to the SS Yule Corner display of any collector or museum!
Published by SS-Oberabschnitt West was a book, entitled “Die Gestaltung der Feste im Jahres- und Lebenslauf in der SS-Familie”. It deals about the meaning and significance as well as the conduct of various holidays in the SS family, including Julfest (Christmas), New Year, Easter, May Day, Summer Solstice, Harvest Day, Name-Giving, Acceptance of the Child into the Jungvolk or Jungmädel, Acceptance of the Child into the Hitler Youth or BDM (League of German Girls), Marriage (including acceptance of the bride into the SS clan community) and Funerals. The book also describes the so called Julecke (Yule Corner) which was decorated with a family trunk, Yule plates, Yule candlestick, tapestry and other symbolic items representing the SS family’s bond to their Germanic ancestors.
