ADOLF HITLER

GIVEN BY THE WINTERHILFSWERK (WHW) AS A TOKEN OF APPRECIATION FOR DONATIONS MADE TO THE NAZI WINTER AID PROGRAM

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. Everyone who made a donation received a small gift in return as a token of appreciation. The WHW came up with a variety of small series of miniature books i.e. on Adolf Hitler, small plastic figurines of battle ships, fighter planes, etc.

Offered here is one complete WHW set on Adolf Hitler and "his" battle in the East, meaning the Blitzkrieg against Poland. Each booklet has a size of 1-1/2 x 2 inch and contains photos by Prof. Heinrich Hoffmann. Each booklet has a hole in the upper corner to attach a string and hang them i.e. on the Christmas tree.
