Desk Piece from an SS-Obergruppenführer: Meine Ehre Heisst Treue (Item SS 27-1)

DESCRIPTION:    Here is an ultra-fine wood carving from the desk of Josias Erbprinz zu Waldeck und Pyrmont. This carving was always on his desk at the Arolesen command, which was the Fulda Werra Oberabschnitt, SS higher command section. For further information on the hereditary prince, see Item SS 25-1 and Item HH 1-6. The box and sword came from the same source. This beautiful, carved motto Meine Ehre Heisst Treue translates to “My Honor is called Loyalty,” as in the oath of the SS. The prince, as SS-Obergruppenführer, certainly lived by this oath. Prince Waldeck was loyal to the end. The carving of the letters is absolutely wonderful and in the true Germanic script from the carving and stand. It is 17 1/2 inches long and the stand or platform is 2 inches wide. The saying: “Meine Ehre Heisst Treue is found on the blade of the daggers of the SS. This is truly a great museum piece.

Book Schafft Anständige Kerle from the SS-Totenkopf Standarte Oberbayern Julfest 1944 (Item SS 27-2)

DESCRIPTION:    This is one of the nicest books that we were able to buy that had been in the former Death’s Head Division in Bavaria. This unit of the SS during the war was involved with police and security measures during the Polish Campaign. After this campaign Bavaria was absorbed into the newly formed division Totenkopf, while still Oberbayern was heavily involved with many security measures against partisans. Max Simon was SS-Gruppenführer und Generalleutnant of this illustrious unit from 1 May 1937. It was he who established the great archive at the HQ where these books originated. He later served in the Totenkopf division that was composed from many of the personnel from Oberbayern. Heinrich Wicker, a member of SS-Standarte Oberbayern, was the officer who accepted the responsibility for surrendering the concentration camp at Dachau in 1938. The American soldiers worked along with Second Lieutenant Wicker and it has been called a noble and heroic act that had he stayed behind to post his group as replacement guards to keep the prisoners inside until the Americans arrived to take charge, there might have been even more carnage with the prisoners roaming the countryside and taking horrible revenge on innocent German citizens. After the necessary deployments, prisoner accounting, etc., the Americans much appreciated the help of Wicker and his staff. Then the Americans deliberately stepped aside and allowed the prisoners to begin a systematic, but frenzied bloodbath against the young SS men who were only replacements. Lt Wicker had his head completely smashed to a pulp right before the GIs who watched with indifference. Then American soldiers lined up the survivors and shot them. Look up “SS-Untersturmführer” on Google for the complete story. We interjected this dark passage only to show the connection of the concentration camps and Oberbayern. Many of the personnel of this unit saw service in the KZs. Often, when a man received wounds on the front he would be transferred to camp duty. The Julfest greeting card in the front of the book is from the older Standarte leaders at the concentration camp at Auschwitz in 1944. Later, they must have donated the book to the library. The title: “ Schafft anständige Kerle ” is taken from a saying by Reichsmarschall Göring and it means “Produce Decent Men.” This book was written by Dr. Erich Kühn and was a primer for all the German services including the SS (especially the SS). It comprises 170 pages and the two plates (Julfest and the ex libris card from the SS-Totenkopf Standarte). The book is in fine shape and certainly is a rare find. By the way, theJulfest card is hand signed by the Standarte Sturmbannführer.

Book Deutschland und Europa, 1890-1914 (Item SS 27-4)

DESCRIPTION:    From the library of the SS-Totenkopf Standarte ‘Oberbayern’ this is a book without pictures that traces the history of the First World War and its beginnings in the ethnic strife that led to it from the turn of the century onward. It is interesting to students of the era, but also as a genuine article from the SS mountain soldiers of the Oberbayern section “High Bavaria.” This is just one of the books that were among the collection bought at auction in Austria a few years back.

Book Stammbaum und Artbild der Deutschen from the Library Archives of the SS Death’s Head Standarte at “Oberbayern (Item SS 27-5)

DESCRIPTION: This book Family Tree and Type Pictures of the Germans by Fritz Kern was pretty much a textbook of the SS. Although published in 1927, 6 years before the NSDAP achieved full power, it served as the hornbook of racial studies of the SS organization. In the library that was auctioned off there were several copies of this book. Through photographs taken in several countries and supplied by museums and universities, Professor Kern puts together a compelling picture that clearly shows the intellectual superiority of the Nordic race and Germanic peoples. Racial-type comparisons are vividly shown as well as ancient art and statuary while respect and admiration is shown to other races. There is preference of course to the Celts, Teutons, and other kindred white cultural groups. The horrors inherent in miscegenation are illustrated graphically. The noble and ignoble are shown side by side. Physiognomy and skull structure abound within the pages. Noble art is depicted beside examples of degenerate offerings down though the ages. This book is not only rare, it is also a very important archival treasure for the serious student of racial hygiene and the quest for human perfection and of course the SS connection is also of great importance.

Book SS Death’s Head, SS-Totenkopf Division in France, 1940 (Item SS 27-6)

DESCRIPTION: This is a campaign history issued during World War II by the SS-Führungshauptamp and republished in English. It was published in 1979 and has been out of print since 1980. It has 123 pages of mostly pictures of the campaign in the west. This book was bought in 1980 for $32.75 and this price can still be seen in the front flyleaf. The text inside is translated from German and mostly is translated from the picture descriptions. The pictures are great—crisp and clear. The author Hunt goes into the typical tirade against the brave men of the ‘TK’ on the last page of what otherwise is a great pictorial record of this illustrious division.

Bread Plate in Ancient Teutonic Tradition (Item SS 27-7; BRE 1-3)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an item from the great traditional culture base of the Germanic peoples. A plate carved in oak like this would be found in the homes of SS personnel. The words around the swastika are from the Norse Edda: “Heil dem Gast der zu uns kommt,” “Hail the guest that to us comes. (Edda).” The words are carved with rounded edges that look to be applied, but actually are carved right along with the actual plate (it’s all one piece). The stylized swastika in the center is the Sonnenrad Hakenkreutz, or sun wheel. This is the truest form of the symbol of the ever-turning fiery celestial orb in that its arms resemble flames. On the back is a single ‘W’ and that is presumed to be the logo or mark of the carver. The plate measures 12 1/2 inches in diameter. The marks that look like cracks are not. They are merely natural graining. We earnestly believe that this is connected with the SS-Ahnenerbe Stiftung because of its very nature. Plates such as these that were often called ‘Julteller,’ ‘Yule plates,’ were often a gift to another SS family at the time of the Julfest, Christmas. Not only was the birth of Jesus celebrated by most of the SS, but also the traditions of the Germanic peoples in their winter solstice. In the context of the SS traditions, the word ‘Christmas’ Weihnachtfest, had nothing originally to do with the Christian faith, but related to Germanic pre-Christian beliefs. The sun symbol on the plate also has the connotation of eternal life (eternally rolls the wheel of life). Everything dies, everything blooms again; eternally rolls the wheel of life Sonnenrad everything breaks, everything is mended. Eternally builds the house of life. Everyone parts, everyone meets. Forever, the cycle of life stays true. Certain SS men refused to part with their Christian ways and this was respected by the SS parent organization. So both faiths, Christian and Pagan, were celebrated together in the Third Reich and in the Schutzstaffel.

SS Allach Porcelain Horse (Item SS 27-9; ART 12-1)

DESCRIPTION: Here is the piece that Professor Diebitsch, the originator of Allach, said was the finest model ever turned out by the Allach firm. Certainly, the stance, the lines, the actions, are exemplary. This was the figure known as the “ Springendes Pferd,” “Jumping Horse,” by the famous Prof. Theodore Kärner of Munich, one of the greatest of the Allach artists. This piece was so favored of the SS Allach factory that it ended up being featured on the cover of their 1938/39 catalog. “A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” If ever this saying could be ascribed to an inanimate object, here it is in all its dramatic glory and this is without even knowing that it is a very important historic piece, as well, in that it is a superbly manufactured item from the benches of the all-important SS Allach firm located in the hamlet of Allach on the Dachauer Strasse below Munich. Our historic advisor actually met with Prof. Carl Diebitsch in 1979 in Tegernsee and at that time the professor told him that this was also his favorite sculpture of all that were produced. This is a large horse that measures 14 inches from the bottom to the highest point of the mane. The base is about 18 inches long and 5 inches wide from the tip of the front, forward. Hoof to the tip of the tail is 21 inches. The consigner said that there was previous damage to the front legs (cracks), but we cannot see it, even under magnification. Perhaps a black light might show it. He said he took it for repair to a professional porcelain studio and when it came back it seemed as good as new! The book by Tony Oliver shown in our images and the copy of the Allach catalog are long out of print and we are unable to procure either one. They are shown only to illustrate the importance of this horse sculpture. The buyer of this item will need to understand that it must be very specially packed by professionals and the cost could be rather heavy. It must be packed with special ‘popcorn’ filling and a box within a box and maybe another box around those. This is a very precious item and must be handled as such! Only a very few of these pieces have ever been offered since 1945, and the production was extremely limited at the SS studios.

DESCRIPTION: Here is just one of hundreds of books that were bought when the contents of the SS Library of the Standarte Oberbayern were bid on at auction by one of our agents in Munich.

Book Wir alle helfen dem Führer from SS Library (Item SS 27-13; RAD 5-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is one of the books procured in a Munich auction when the entire contents of the library of the SS-Totenkopf Standarte Oberbayern was sold. This one was in the special section as it has the book number 1030. Most of the editions were not numbered. The book is in near-mint condition with 230 pages. Its title translates to “We are all Helping the Leader.” It was written by Dr. Robert Ley, the leader of the Deutsches Arbeits Front, and was published by the Central Publishing Office of the NSDAP in Munich. It has 15 pictures and mostly text about the advances and new techniques of the labor movement in NS Germany. Dr. Ley was an important party official and a diligent paladin for the working man. The book has the SS-Totenkopf bookplate inside the cover. It measures 5 x 7 1/2 inches and is about 1 inch thick.

PRICE: $138.00; please understand as SS items these books would cost much more on other sites, but because we were able to procure so many in the auction we are passing them on at very reasonable prices

Book Auf Hieb und Stich! (Item SS 27-14)

DESCRIPTION: The book is named Hit and Stab. It’s an old German expression. It became synonymous with the expression ‘defense’ and the book was written by Gunter d’Alquen, the editor of the SS magazine Das Schwarze Korps. For more information about d’Alquen go to the grouping at Item SS 21-4. The book contains 343 pages and measures 5 x 7 1/2 inches. Inside it says: “Für erfolgreiche Mitarbeit das Schwarze Korps 1937.” You will see these same words on the Allach plaque at Item SS 24-19. This translates to: “For successful cooperation.” This indicates that it is possible that this book was a gift or prize to the Totenkopf Oberbayern group for working with the Schwarze Korps in some project or even for letting the d’Alquen staff photograph its mountain headquarters. The book is in nice condition with black linen cover with SS runes on the spine. This is about as SS as they come. Unfortunately there are no pictures, but still a great SS item and quite rare.

Nazi Baby Ring (Item SS 27-15; NSD 13-1)

DESCRIPTION: Here is the smallest NS ring ever! They were manufactured for the children of loyal party members and SS personnel. The ring was often presented to parents of a newborn at Christian baptism or the special rites of the same, but performed by the SS officials in solemn ceremonies. The ring is not something like the size of an SS Victory ring or as impressive as a Hitler Youth leader’s ring, but it has its own charm, notwithstanding. It features an enameled swastika cradled in flowers as would be expected in an infant’s ring. It has some markings inside that look to be a logo and the ‘800’ silver designation. This is a very pretty petite piece of Third Reich jewelry that probably would not even start to go on your pinky. The size is near to a 5. This is rare and original.
