    Default German 1919 pamphlet...

    Hi,

    This pamphlet was printed in 1919 but I think it was interesting enough for the Germans, after 1933 to read it, since it has an embossed seal, top-right, of the party's archives, Munich. How can one locate information on the author? not much in google, also, a translation to understand the text? it was brought to British Palestine after the war, 1945, and kept in a small library for years.

    Thanks,

    Neil.

    The Nazis were very conscious of the social history that led to the NSDAP ascent to power in 1933.

    The NSDAP bought a massive collection of political and other related ephermera and objects assembled by Josef Maria Rehse during the late teens and through the following decade to 1933. Rehse was also made head of the archive.

    It was known as "Sammlung F.J. Rehse. Archiv fur Zeitgeschichte und Publizistik" or The F.J. Rehse Collection. Archive for Contemporary History and Current Affairs. Its headquarters was in Munich.

    Rehse was later assigned to "collect" relevant holdings in museums in occupied territories.

    Translating the text of the pamphlet would be easy enough. The content might be rather compelling. It seems to be a discussion of the state of social programs, welfare and citizens' rights in Germany, their stagantion during WW1 and the attempts to revitalize them in the new , post-monarchist German state.

    In 1919, the forces of social reform and class struggle were propelled by the Soviet revolution in Russia. Germany and other countries were on the brink of internal upheaval themselves with all the various factions vying for power.

    Hi,

    Thank you very very much!
    The embossed seal reads for the NSDAP (in full) Hauptarchiv in Munchen.
    The author would have either ended up in a camp or work with the party...?

    If the author was still politically active after 1933 as an opposition writer, he would probably have been arrested. Most of the communist leadership went underground, were arrested or emmigrated to the Soviet Union or elsewhere within a couple years of Hitler's becoming chancellor.
