    Wilhelm Decker

    Wilhelm "Will" Decker (December 13, 1899, Rostock - May 1, 1945, Berlin) was a German politician, publicist and general labor leader during the Nazi era. He is not to be confused with the SA man Wilhelm Decker (1907-1931), who was called the "martyr of the Nazi movement".

    Life and Work
    In his youth Decker attended the humanistic high school in Rostock. From 1917 he took part in the First World War, in which he was deployed on the Western Front.
    After the war, Decker studied history and German studies at the University of Rostock. In 1922 he received his doctorate in Dr. phil. From 1923 Decker wrote for the folk-oriented Pyritzer Kreisblatt in Pomerania. In 1924 he became the editor of the Mecklenburger Warte newspaper. In 1926 Decker left the People's Movement to join the NSDAP (membership number 136.932). In 1929 he became Gau and Reichsredner of the NSDAP and in November of the same year a member of the Brandenburg Provincial Committee and the district council of Niederbarnim.
    From September 1930 to May 1945 Decker was a member of the Reichstag as a member of the Reichstag for constituency 4 (Potsdam I). As an MP, Decker voted in favour of the Authorisation Act of March 1933, which formed the legal basis for the establishment of the Nazi dictatorship.
    Since 1931 he has been working for the Voluntary Labour Service, and the NSDAP leadership appointed him "Inspector of Education and Training" in the Reich Administration. From 1934 he published the National Socialist magazine Volk am Arbeit, the contents of which were so well placed that Decker was appointed general labour leader in the Reichsarbeitsdienst in 1935. In addition, Decker worked as a composer and wrote several songs for the Reichsarbeitsdienst.

    In 1935, Reichseducation Minister Bernhard Rust appointed Decker as lecturer for labour service at the University of Berlin, where he was appointed honorary professor in June 1937. In the Working Group for German Folklore, founded in 1937, Decker was briefly head of the Ceremony Design Unit.
    Since January 30, 1939, Decker was the holder of the NSDAP's Golden Party Badge.
    He also served as permanent representative of the leader of the RAD, Konstantin Hierl, from 1940. In addition, Decker has been a member of the advisory board of the "Research Department Jewish Question" within the Reich Institute for the History of New Germany since 1940.
    Decker died in the early Battle of Berlin at the beginning of May 1945. Whether it was suicide or whether he was fatally wounded is still unclear.

    Gott segne die Arbeit
    Heiliges Feuer
    Singend wollen wir marschieren
    Wir tragen das Vaterland in unseren Herzen
