Muetzenfabrik

Article about: F.B. Reichenbach is about 10 km (6 miles) away from me. If you want, I'll make a photo of the building. If it is still standing.

    I hope thats not true Ben, ive been trying to follow all that has been said here and trying hard to understand the complexities regarding the German cap industries and although it is a true minefield for most of us, im glad that you and FB are doggedly engaged in bringing this subject to light, i would dearly love to understand german in order that these documents become more clear to me, and its a great shame that noone has been able to devote the enormous time and patience to translate all that has been written on the subject, i think that would nearly take another lifetime, but just imagine if a be all and end all book be available to everyone, there would definately be fors and against mainly because of the ability of the modern day fakers, to have this resource open to them would lead to absolute chaos in the collecting market, but by all means you and FB carry on enlightening us ,its a privilage seeing two like minded people trying to gain knowledge and pass it on
    Thanks indeed and gratitude for your continued interest and valued input.

    Many collectors are of the oft-mistaken belief that the items in their collections were not the result of slave-labor or the camp-system. To the contrary, a great portion was. These pics are from the Lodz ghetto:

    Most will recognize all sorts of Wehrmacht uniform parts and insignia in these pics.

    A sobering testament indeed.

    Donnerwetter and Bravo! Very interesting and, of course, pretty sickening images, but nothing we did not already know. My point: you cannot take politics out of these things, and the point of UM was Nazi ideology as applied to the textile trade in the years 1933-1939. The first goal was to drive Jews out of the textile trade in Berlin, and these images in the case of the Lodz ghetto was the rendering of subject populations an instrument of total war and a kind of homicidal political economy of a distinct kind. No riddle to it at all. I have cited the works on the SS economics system ad length, though these images are for Wehrmacht uniforms, surely. Thanks for your fine research and addition to our little colloquium.
    Where did you find these images? Are they in the color series on Lodz/Litzmannstadt as had on the Life website in Google?

    Thanks for the very enlightening additional Bildmaterial.
    damit, basta.

    F-B, they are part of a collection of 300 photos taken (in color) by a German officer at the Lodz Ghetto. They are available at the Yad Vashem website. Should be mandatory viewing for all.

    Thanks so much, indeed. Much merit to having this material amid the other items here as regards the totality of the subject at hand. Thanks.

    Chris,
    Thank you for posting the exhibition images and the link. The images represent not only an illuminating view of the contemporary high regard for uniforms and accoutrements but also a testament to the web's extraordinary ability to constantly offer up information.
    Good addition,

    I have seen many army Tellermuetzen in my time, and I wonder how these illustrated here were marked, which is a stupid, silly little point. These objects were also made well into the war, whereas the ones I have seen in a life time of collecting have tended to be from the years of the peace time build up of the Wehrmacht, i.e. 1935-1939. Maybe all these things remained in situ in central and eastern Europe and vanished there in turn. Of no account. Thanks again for the compelling images. This kind of propaganda was typical of Nazi treatment of the occupation in the Generalgouvernement and the parts of Poland annexed outright to the Reich.Name:  220px-GengouvduPrel.jpg

    These two images are of particular interest. The machinists seem to be sewing together tropical Fliegermutzen and on the completed product table we see them on show but only one seems to have an eagle attached no doubt due to the limited quantities of this type eagle being available at the time.

    We know that tropical Fliegermutzen were made in the Warsaw Ghetto because of examples like this one shown which has the Transferstelle mark on the lining but now we know they were also made in Lodz.
