    Default Wochenspruch - Herman Goering

    Here are the Weekly Words of the NSDAP for 22-28 October 1939

    “Behind the front stands the homeland, ready to give all that it is able to give in order to make easier the fearsome work of the soldiers before the enemy, before death. Herman Göring.”

    Somewhat rare because it is with it's original mailing tube - addressed to Alois Zurker who was residing at the Oxen guesthouse in Dudenhofen, south of Ludwigshafen in the Rhine industrial heartland - quite stirring words from the soon-to-be Reichsmarschall
    ( the overindulgent drug-addled buffoon that he was)

    Hope you like it.
    Cheers, Dan

    "Somewhat rare"? I'd defy anyone to find another such! Very nice piece!

    I'm not sure how these things worked but he may have been the proprietor of the Gasthaus and ordered or been sent one of these posters for display in his establishment.
    It's a great set anyhow and would make a super display.

    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

    Had a search on Google maps etc..... there are other Gasthaus zum Ochsen but seemingly not in Dudenhofen.
    Another ironic thing is is that it was postmarked on Armistice Day 1939 ( 11/11 ) ...... shades of things to come! ( insert spooky music here )

    Thanks Adrian, yeah he WAS probably the owner ...that makes more sense than a permanent guest ( although there are many of those )
    These were supposedly sent out weekly to the party faithful as "inspirational words" to be placed in the home or workplace.
    I suppose Gauleiters distributed these in their areas of responsibility. If so ( and Dudenhofen was in Gau Pfalz-Saar ) then this charming chap, Joseph Burkel was the main man! Josef Bürckel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Nice bit of research to tie things together!
