ORIGINAL 1926 POSTCARD HANDWRITTEN BY SA LEADER ERNST RÖHM

FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE FOR AUTHENTICITY

RŐHM ERNST: (1887-1934) Nazi Leader, a co-founder of the Sturmabteilung (Storm Battalion, SA). In 1934, as part of the Night of the Long Knives, Röhm was executed on Hitler’s orders as a potential rival. A rare written card, Ernst, to one side of a plain German postcard, (Munich), postmarked 23 September 1926, to Franz Kugler (‘Loyal Franz’), in German. Röhm writes to inform his friend that from the 27th September ‘I will work 8 hours every day starting at 8 am as an apprentice in a factory’, further remarking ‘Unfortunately this does not give me time to enjoy the Oktoberfest. If you come we shall have to meet in the evening after work’. Hand addressed by Röhm to the verso and again signed (‘Röhm’) with his surname only in the return address panel. One small area of paper loss to one corner, and with a light crease to the lower left corner.  In the aftermath of the failed Munich Beer Hall Putsch of November 1923 Adolf Hitler became distrustful of Röhm and his ambitious plans. When, in April 1925, Hitler disapproved of the proposals under which Röhm was prepared to integrate the 30,000-strong Frontbann into the SA, Röhm reacted by resigning from all political groups and military brigades on 1st May 1925. For the first time in his adult life Röhm was faced with the prospect of having to earn a living as an ordinary civilian. Röhm’s financial circumstances were not good and he began by working as a door-to-door salesman selling books for a right wing publishing house. He struggled in this job, and often found it painful and humiliating. As referred to in the present letter, in the autumn of 1926 Rohm was employed for two months in the Robel track building factory, a position found for him by Princess Luise of Sachsen-Altenburg. Despite Röhm’s claims that he did well and was considered for a leading position by the company’s founder, he did not remain there, and details of his employment in 1927 are not known. RARE
