    It's not German but many words are similar. It will be interesting to see what is written.
    Cool card I'm thinking.

    Hmm, well it's not Norwegian, but what is it? I thought it could be Danish, but tried to translate a piece, and it didn't work. My best geuss is that it's old German, or maybe even a Swiss dialect. The first sentence just doesn't translate to any other language. Its not German as we know it; Dinn Schwur vun de Junge means "The oath of the youth", but not sure yet what langauge.

    Your post card has some interesting dates. The front is dated 1923 and was the Jugenbund der NSDAP based only in Munich with a little over 1000 members.
    The card was sent in 1933 and by late '33' about a year after Nazi came to power the numbers had grown to 2,300,000. A lot can happen in 10 years I guess.
    I'm not saying that card was anoriginal from 1923, just interesting.

    I can make out most of the text, just some words I don't understand. I read;

    "The oath of the young Nordmark
    the land on what you stand is holy land
    we got it unslaved, and free it shall stay
    and if destiny will take fate in its hands
    we will not move, true are we
    untill the death, and pray to god and our own power
    undevided
    They want our ?? honor and last drop of blood
    that stands for that in our ?? fate, they will not take. Our freedom
    is more than life. Proud we stand ?? untill the death, and pray to god and our own strenght;
    rather death than slave.
