REINHARD HEYDRICH

PUBLISHED ON OCCASION OF THE ECONOMY CONVENTION IN PRAGUE HOSTED BY THE SS! A SCARCE ITEM WITH RARELY SEEN HEYDRICH PHOTOS!

The Südosteuropa Gesellschaft (Southeast Europe Company) was founded 1940 in Vienna (former Austria, since 1938 part of the Greater German Reich) and was led by Baldur von Schirach, Gauleiter of Vienna and former Reich Youth Leader. The purpose of this company was to improve the economical relationship between German occupied Böhmen und Mähren (Bohemia and Moravia) and the German Reich. Bohemia and Moravia was declared Reichsprotektorat by Hitler in 1939, meaning it was directly "protected" by the Reich. Konstantin Freiherr von Neurath was appointed Reichspro-tektor and absolute ruler of Bohemia and Moravia, directly reporting to Hitler. Neurath's deputy was SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich. The Südosteuropa Gesellschaft had their first convention together with the German chamber of economic affairs in Prague in December 1941. The convention took place in Prague and was hos-ted by Reinhard Heydrich who also held the opening speech. Six months after the event Heydrich was assassinated and died from blood poisoning on June 4, 1942. This book, published six months after his death was conatins all the speeches that were held on the convention in December 1941. Many high rank SS officers and top NS party officials were the speakers (see index below left) such as SS-Obergruppenführer Rein-hard Heydrich, SS-Oberführer Rafelsberger, SS-Oberführer Dr. Hayler, Baldur von Schirach and Reich Minister Walter Funk. The book mainly was published in honor of Reinhard Heydrich and it contains mostly photos of him.

The book was probably not published in a great number of copies by Volk und Reich Verlag in Prague!

This rare 7-1/2 x 9-1/4 inch, 100-page hardcover book was published 1942 (probably shortly after Heydrich's death) by Volk und Reich Verlag with branches in Berlin, Vienna and Prague. The book is in near mint condition and a very hard to find addition for anyones collection of historic SS, especially Reinhard Heydrich material!
