There are some amazing cards being shown on this thread, keep it going
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
When they got a card in the pack of cigaretts and paste it in the book, how did the get the extra large picture?
I recently picked up several of these cards. There are 4 or 5
with Uncle Adolf as the subject, greeting people, etc.
Below is my favorite - I was rather surprised to find
that it's not card #1.........!
My only example is this 'Deutschland Erwacht' #8, possibly indicating a series of the erwacht albums?
Lots of early photographs detailing the rise of the party and the marches, rallies etc. Many of the images are artificially coloured and the album ends with a fold-out, panoramic photo of a Nuremberg rally. Curious also to learn how the larger cards were acquired?
