Eric is correct with this one , a photo of the back and the whole photo is needed i am not convinced of it's originality !!

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

I'd say it's a good period reprint. The image itself is really neat but I dubt it's an "original" per se --- perhaps reprint made for members of some RAD unit? Not an expert on the different types of photo paper but I believe Agfa Brovira paper is period. Also, who would have been placed directly behind Hitler at such an event? Leaders of various organizations (in this case probably RAD)? Press/Unit photographers?
Also, it seems to me after having handled quite a few originals in my short time collecting that matte high quality photos such as this are more often seen when it comes to "official" prints reprinted in numbers for members of some specific organization or unit etc., whereas thinner and probably cheaper glossy stock paper are more usually seen when it comes to private candid shots etc.
Well, that's my impression anyway... I'd be very interested in hearing other views on this.
