ID:	363588Hi, I have No idea where these two items are from or what they were used for. Very interesting they caught my eye and were part of a veterans collection with other real items he had brought back (came in a WW2 Grenade Box!)...Figured I'd take a shot. Thanks!

Size:  11.9 KB Most definitely a plaque of Josef Goebbels, as it is his classic weak chinned jelly bean ear profile shot. Can't say that I've ever seen another like it before. I can't imagine even in Nazi era Germany who would have admired Goebbels enough to have a plaque of him. I would think, it would have been like having a big portrait on your wall of Joe Biden...Very unusual.

    I uploaded a pic of the corner of the Goebbles Plaque, I am not familiar enough with these items to know whose initials they are, maybe a rare artist or something...these were supposedly taken off the wall somewhere in Berlin and after the war they made their way back home.

    Im trying to go over my books to find something in the background...wondering if they were owned by someone important before our G.I.'s and the Red Army got to redecorating!

    Funny how the main players in the Nazi hierarchy didn't really conform to the 'ideal' Germanic stereotype they loved to portray.

    Look at Hitler, Himmler, Goebbels, Goering, Bormann, Hess for example. Hardly members of the stereotypical Aryan race they wished to create. I wonder why no-one seemed to question it at the time..............!

    Probably for the same reason I doubt that Himmler lost many Tennis matches...
