    Ive been to the Wewelsburg Castle last week and i would like to share some of the highlight of the small SS museum there.

    Pity the Sunwheel mozaik in the main tower and its swastika's ceeling is forbidden to photograph.

    Cheers,
    Ger

    Thank you for sharing the images Ger.

    The concentration camp prisoner uniform with a purple Winkel (cloth insignia / triangle), is rather unusual as it would have been worn by either a member of the clergy or a Bibelforscher (Bible student, the term used for Jehovah's Witness).

ID:	511810All this material is in the catalog so enclosed. The two caps have bum insignia, but that is hardly a reason for much alarm.
    U.S. persons more or less emptied Germany of real SS regalia, or the other real regalia is held captive in a collector biotope that does not see the light of day because of political and social damnation.

    Thank you for showing us the interesting material. Unlike the 1960s, when I first went to West Germany as a high school student, there are today many fine museums and exhibitions devoted to the reality of the III. Reich in great variety.
    damit, basta.
