    Default Mutter Kreuz with documents.

    Hello,

    I recently picked up this mothers cross and was surprised to find some documents came with it, but i cannot comment on originality....

    Here is a very rough translation of the text *please excuse my poor German and the quality of the images.

    Mrs Anna Kaiblinger,

    You are hereby invited to receive the mothers honor cross on Sunday the 17th of May 1942 at 3 o'clock afternoon in the hotel Brandl. You are expected to attend.

    Heil Hitler
    The Womens Association

    Kindest Regards

    The Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter (in English: Cross of Honour of the German Mother), referred to colloquially as the Mutterehrenkreuz (Mother’s Cross of Honour) or simply Mutterkreuz (Mother’s Cross), was a state decoration and civil order of merit conferred by the government of the German Reich to honour a Reichsdeutsche (Imperial German) mother for exceptional merit to the German nation. Eligibility later extended to include Volksdeutsche (ethnic German) mothers from, for example, Austria and Sudetenland, that had earlier been incorporated into the German Reich.
