Castle Wewelsburg

The pictures of the marching SS soldiers before the castle are from the photo archive of Arthur Meter of Nuremberg, Germany who had the permission of the Herman Auction House in Munich to copy it when they had it up for sale in a previous auction sale. No one can have a copyright on this picture -- it is now in the possession of the Wewelsburg District Museum.

Wewelsburg Dinnerware

DESCRIPTION: Here is a small grouping of silverware from the SS Leadership School at Castle Wewelsburg. This Besteck, or flatware, was part of a very large collection that was assembled by a German collector who, in 1950, started collecting nothing but Besteck until his death in recent years. He had the Kaiser’s silver, the führer’s formal silverware, and pieces from the concentration camps; and knives, forks, spoons from several elite SS units to include the famed LAH, the Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler, the Wiking Division, das Reich, etc., but some of the scarcest of all were the pieces from the SS-Führerschule “der Führerkorps (the Leadership School) at Castle Wewelsburg. The tableware from other SS and NS groups now are featured throughout our pages, but none as rare as these particular items. The ancient castle was acquired by Heinrich Himmler in 1934. It is said that the Ahnenerbe (Office of Ancestral Research) had a major input in the ensuing redevelopment of the castle. Many closed ceremonies were carried on within its walls and there are special rooms and great halls that are designed and dedicated to those purposes and it was here that the Totenkopfringe (SS Rings of Honor) were to be returned after the death of an SS-officer recipient. Himmler’s plans for the castle included making it the center of a new Germanic world empire following a final victory. To symbolize this, a circular wall centered on the castle one kilometer in diameter was planned. This would have been the north tower and it would have served as the “center of the world.” Much can be found on the internet about the castle so we will not give a full explanation here. Of course, the descriptions and narratives that are to be viewed will be replete with such exciting blood-tingling blather as to indict the castle and the SS to the role of murderers, sadist, etc. (the language of those who win a war!), but the inquisitive, the student, the collector, can read between the lines and learn. In any case, just wade through the drivel and extract the needed information. The pieces are most beautiful being formal dinnerware from such a prestigious NS institution. There are two different patterns; the earlier pattern being naturally more scarce. The items are all in very good condition showing use, but are, in fact, undented and bright. When they are gone they are surely gone. We know of no other source. The collector who is able to procure any of these is to be considered quite fortunate.

Wewelsburg Dinnerware Set (first type, informal) (Item CASTLE 1-1)

DESCRIPTION: This is a set of knife, fork, and spoon in the early style with the small set of runes on the bottom portion of the tangs. There is a company mark “Gowe Silbert 90.” This was a very prestigious company that supplied even the dinner services of German royalty. At the very bottom of the tang on the back is the Wewelsburg stamp that shows the words above the runes are in an arch configuration. The large spoon in the set is nearly 8 1/2 inches long. The fork is marked in the same way and is about 8 1/4 inches long. The knife is about 10 inches long and is marked on the blade “Marke Gowe.” The other markings are the same. The pieces are heavy silver plated. This is a great addition to any good SS collection and is 100 percent genuine.

PRICE:  SOLD

Wewelsburg Dinnerware Set (second type) (Item CASTLE 1-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is another set of the Wewelsburg dinner service (Besteck), flatware. This one being of the much more formal style adopted later, whenever the supplier was changed. These pieces have a rather baroque motif. The sizes are the same as those above. The SS on the front of the tang is larger and more pronounced, and the Wewelsburg and small runes at the tip of the tang are the same. The pieces are heavily silver plated (not sterling). The condition is extra fine, but shows some usage. Again, this is a wonderful addition to an SS collection.

Souvenir Knife from the SS Leadership School Wewelsburg (Item CASTLE 1-4)

DESCRIPTION: This is probably the nicest Wewelsburg item we have seen. It is a solid silver fish knife that one of the former officer candidates must have liberated during his stay there (students do such things!).  The knife is definitely a very formal piece of high service dinnerware decorated with fine floral engraving. The SS officer candidate upon his graduation obviously snuck it out and had it engraved later with the words "SS Reichsfuhrerschule –burg Wewelsburg”, and had his initials E.G. put on the end of the handle. On the back is the 800 and half-moon stamp for silver and the name of the firm that supplied it to the castle, C. Donddorf.  The knife is 8 ½ inches long and is in perfect shape  A great historical item that is both rare and beautiful. Wewelsburg items are seldom found and this was a most fortunate acquisition.

PRICE: SOLD

 

Himmler's Camelot

 

Himmler's Camelot

 

Book: Heinrich Himmler’s Camelot
The Wewelsburg Ideological Center of the SS 1934-45
by Steven Cook and Stewart Russell
(Item CASTLE 1-5 & AHN 4-8 & HH 4-9 & ENGBOOKS 1-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is a sensational book that should be a must for any serious SS collector. We felt that it was imperative that we handle it. It is the saga and history of the WewelsburgCastle (also known as “Himmler’s Castle”) from ancient times to the present day, and the roles of the SS, the Ahnenerbe, Heinrich Himmler, Karl Weistor and other personalities. It further explains the surrounding geographic area of Westphalia and its strategic importance to the National Socialist philosophy. Reichsfuhrer SS Heinrich Himmler spearheaded a quest for Germany’s forgotten ancestral heritage and documents of its natural pagan culture. Heinrich Himmler’s Camelot also gives a rare insight as a high quality pictorial of the people, the architectural plans and castle rooms, including the north towers ‘Valhalla’ and “Hall of Pillars” with the “Black Sun” as well as the nearby Externsteine (rocks of the sun) and Hermann's monument (The Battle of Teutons vs. Roman Legions) plus much, much more material to thrill the hearts of true Germanophiles.

* Over 200 B & W photos, plus numerous illustrations and documents all available for the first time in an English language publication.
* Plus a 16 page color section with 31 photographs, including a rare never before seen, full page of Heinrich Himmler’s death mask.
* Contains a fold-out showing a unique design of the twelve Knights of the Round Table.
* A complete story of the Castle's history, architecture, renovation and décor, administration wartime fate, secrets, and the extraordinary fascination that appeals to thousands of visitors every year.
* Behold! The coming of a National Socialist Arthurian Court, the Sword Excalibur, Sir Lancelot and Merlin including an index, glossary, reference notes and informative appendices about the structure of the SS.
* 256 pages, hardbound with beautiful artistic dust jacket and an 8 ½" x 11" format.
* Read the facts about what really occurred at the Wewelsburg based on 20+ years of research by Stuart Russell, historian, author, filmmaker, and contributor to numerous topic related books. Now, with a deeper analysis in English with Stephen Cook, artist, historian, author and publisher.  Learn of Germany’s cultural re-awakening, Weltaschauung, the role of the Christian Church, academic studies, scientific evidence, and the personalities involved.
* A ‘must have’ for military historians, collectors, philosophers, theologians, artists and Germanophiles!

Second hand copies of this hard to find book are sometimes avaiable on the internet for prices of around $120.00 to $195.00 USD. Having been at this castle several times I can say it is a real experience and should not be missed by serious historians. Germania International has a special arrangement with Stephen Cook the author, so the book is available from Germania International, LLC for $108.50 and this price includes postage and insurance in the United States.

PRICE: $108.50 (includes postage and insurance when mailed in the U.S.)

A Willrich Book from the SS Leadership School at Castle Wewelsbug (Nordisches Blutserbe) (Item CASTLE 1-6)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a beautiful and historically important book filled with prints of paintings by Wolfram Willrich, the greatest of Germanic artists depicting the purity and nobility of the Germanic race and also it’s fighting men of the Wehrmacht. He devoted his talent and his soul to the glorification of the übermench (the master race!). (By the way, I do not apologize for the use of the term!) Although Willrich was said by the wimpy apologists to harbor beliefs that coincided with those of the Third Reich, actually he was not interested in the direct implementation of the policy or the alleged preparation for war.  His first priority was art that he deemed beautiful.  The conveyance of the beauty of nature and the nobility of the Aryan species. He brought out the faces of the most beautiful race of all! The wonderful  countenances of Aryan folk.  Willrich believed that any other rendition of art not based on solid craftmanship which did not comply with the rules of the classical era, was therefore totally degenerate and valuable only to idiotic fools! I fully concur with that sensible statement.  Most modern Impressionistic art could after all easily be accomplished by infants or even apes.  His portrayals of the gallant German fighting men of the war especially those who had won the Knights Cross were to become the heroes and models of the Hitler Youth and the nation as a whole.  But although he is most famed for his war art we present here his portraits in book form of his studies of the Germanic folk whose faces reflect that nobility and beauty that we have hitherto mentioned. The book is named Nordisches Blutserbe (Blood Inheritance) a fitting title as this German racial countenance is mirrored in those 1930’s faces but remains much the same as their ancestors of old.--the Teutons. He subtitles this book Im Suddeutschen Bauertum southern German farming types.

The book has 36 color pictures and 28 in black and white. 64 pages including an informative text.  It was published in 1938 by F. Bruckmann in Munich the pictures are absolutely inspiring. Here is the National Geographic of Aryandom but with ‘white faces’ of the highest order.   Willrich told it as it is!  He accomplished his paintings in what could be said to be equal to thousands of words!  The book measures 7 x 9 and the prints are from 5 ½ x 7 to 5 x 7 ½.  Most of the paintings were accomplished in 1937.  The book bears the stamp of the Library of the SS Ahnenerbe Bibliothek.  The library of the SS leadership school at Castle Wewelsburg.  Their stamp is in the front cover and again in the back cover. Inside the back cover you will also see the stamp of the SS hauptquartier In Berlin.  The book was from this SS H.Q. in Berlin and then sent to Wewelsburg with the idea of inspiring the recruits there with the racial ideals that the SS stood for. Here is a very rare book that is even scarcer due to its former SS library ownership.

PRICE: $389.00

*Also see the marvelous recreation of Willrich’s SS poster series called Von Lebensbaum Deutschen art- -Bilder und Gedanken zur Rassenfrage Mappe 2 (from the Lifetree of the German types – pictures and comment on the question of race Folder 2. This is his famous series of pictures depicting the bust portraits of SS men go to Allgemeine SS page 35-17.

Sconce from Wewelsburg (Himmler’s Castle) (Item CASTLE 1-7)

DESCRIPTION: Among mementos of the SS the most rare and most desirable are the pieces seldom found from the -Reichsführerschule Wewelsburg. Genuine relics from this grand castle are extremely rare. If you read some of the various narratives that at least might touch on truth about the SS political schooling and ideological orientation and courses for future SS officers you will realize that the research in pre- and early history, mythology, archaeology, astronomy, and Aryan art was rather astounding. You start to realize that this would have been a mental warehouse for what you and I might think would be the nucleus of the creation of the “Herrenvolk’ (“The Superman” as Spengler put it.). It was a bold and noble project and had the war turned out differently, this certainly would have been the proving grounds and refinement center for men who would have become some of the greatest leaders the world had ever seen or could hope for; certainly far from the wimpy and not-so-admirable leaders of today’s world, especially in the west. When you read the various blogs about the SS school and in particular about the various buildings, crypts, and chambers, it is brought out that the liberal leftist jugheads that now manage the castle as a museum run it as a German branch of the Washington, D.C., Holocaust Museum and that there are certain rooms that are closed to the public and no member of the press have ever been given a pass. This leads us to speculate that these rooms were the laboratory locations of the -Ahnenerbe or Ancestral Heritage Foundation. A group fostered for the intensive and very advanced studies into anthropology, and ancient civilizations, it stretched its studies deep into the origins of the Indo-Germanic culture, its customs, and its ritualistic ceremonies. It was here and in Berlin that many items of old Germanic history were often devised, remade, and used as study guides or just as reminders of the dynamics of old Germania and its Teutonic peoples for children’s studies and astute scientific research as well. This iron-eagle sconce was once there somewhere in the deep recess of the castle’s walls. The lamp was said to be one of several that lined a dark passageway into a catacomb that lay in the subterranean depths of the castle. Karl Maria Willigut, Heinrich Himmler’s advisor on mystic ritualistic affairs and the designer of the SS Himmler chair that we have, was the man who planned the catacombs and in fact designed all the décor found there and no doubt our lamp offered here. The lamp is wrought from iron and of course iron is considered semisacred to the N.S. mythos (Iron Cross, Iron Dream, iron determination, Rittermann im Eisen, the Iron Chancellor (Bismarck). Yes, iron (Eisen) was very important to the ideological awareness and ideology of N.S. Germany. It truly was the “Iron Time.” So, this crude-looking-eagle design harkens back to the Iron Age (1200-550 BC); the time known to history as “The Day of the Blacksmith.” This eagle, in fact, looks blacksmith made. There is a bar—held up in place by one of the eagle’s talons—that holds two light holders. Suspended from the bar are two light bulb cups or shades. We don’t know what type of bulbs were used inside the castle back then, but they were probably pretty close in shape and color to these we have substituted. In the center of the eagle’s breast is the runic symbol of the SS. The whole presentation is indicative of the symbolism used by the ancient Germanic tribes such as the Cherusci, the Angles, Burgundiones, and Ostrogoths. The style of the eagle would remind one of the type that might be seen on the war shields of the fierce warriors or possibly the totem of a chief of the tribe as seen on the front of the meeting lodge where the “Allfather” would be worshipped and venerated. We had to change the electric cord and plug so it would work with U.S. electrical standards and it now works fine. Well, Germanophiles, here is an -Ahnenerbe relic straight from the castle and don’t ask how it came to us. We aren’t talking! But it is said that a certain former employee at the castle back in about 1947, who didn’t think he/she was paid enough . . . ‘nuf said! The information was second hand and we couldn’t swear to its validity in any case. However, the originality of the piece and its origins are true and completely valid and our ownership is 100-percent legal and secure. This is an incredibly rare N .S. relic and as far as we know an item never to be offered again.

PRICE: $3,800.00

Dinner Knife from Wewelsburg (Himmler’s Castle) (Item CASTLE 1-8)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an excellent dinner knife from the SS Führerschule at Wewelsburg (Himmler’s Castle). Its pattern is similar to the set of three pieces shown at Item CASTLE 1-2 above; however, it does not have the large runes on the front of the grip, but it does have the large rune in the center of a semicircle with the word “Wewelsburg” following around the circle. At different times the patterns ordered by the castle procurement office showed some change. We believe this was the final approved pattern accepted by the Reichsführer- himself. The price of this single piece of besteck is . . .:

Silver Letter Opener from the Wewelsburg Castle and School (Item CASTLE 1-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is a beautiful little letter opener that in all probability belonged to the commandant of the castle, SS General Siegfried Taubert. The letter opener is crafted in pure 800 silver with the half moon and crown marking and silver stamp plainly seen. The front side has a set of two genuine elk’s teeth set with a silver oak-leaf base all in high relief. Before this is a stylized rune figuration. The blade has the motto ”Meine SS ehre” (My SS Honor). On the back of the blade it says “SS-Schule Haus Wewelsburg." The usage of the elk’s teeth is rather ceremonial in nature. Men who engaged in the Teutonic hunt from ancient to modern times kept elks’ teeth as a talisman that guaranteed further success in future hunts. The implement is about 6 inches long and beautifully designed in the Germanic traditional style. This a great little relic of a plan that would have produced an era of Iron and Glory had it not been cut short by its traditional enemies.

PRICE: $1,200.00; Extremely unique and prodigiously important.

 Book Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler; actually from his Personal Library (Item CASTLE 1-10; RAREBOOK 1-12; AH 28-12)

DESCRIPTION:  Here is a copy of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf that the Führer sent to the SS Order Castle at Wewelsburg. He gave several books with his personal bookplate to various libraries throughout the Reich. They are, however, very rare, today. We bought several books from the library (Bibliotheck) of Wewelsburg at the Frankfurt am Main book fair several years ago. This one was considered the prize and it was a very early edition—1933; the year of Hitler’s ascension to power. However, it was surely presented to the library much later. The book is in practically mint condition. It has the Führer’s personal bookplate and the Wewelsburg Library stamp inside the front cover. It’s hard to imagine just how great this is—an SS treasure and a super Hitler item, as well. We at Germania are very proud to offer this treasured item of history.

 Book Rasse und Humor (Item CASTLE 1-11; RAREBOOK 1-14)

DESCRIPTION:  Here is a book from the library of Burg Wewelsburg, Himmler’s Order Castle. The entire library collection was sold several years ago at a book fair in Frankfurt am Main and we managed to get a few volumes with the Wewelsburg Bibliothek (library) stamp inside. The book Rasse und Humor (Race and Humor) makes fun of the peculiarities of various races. It contains 58 black-and-white drawings and 254 pages and, of course, with German text it was published by the Lehmanns Verlag in Munich and Berlin in 1939. Some of the pictures are indeed very humorous. It is a rare book and seldom found as most books like this were destroyed by the victorious Kultur-Zerstörer—“Culture Destroyers”—after the war. To be from the library of the SS-Wewelsburg makes it even more desirable to the collector. The Wewelsburg stamp is found inside the front cover.

PRICE: $195.00
