    Default Very interesting Luftschutz helmet

    Hi guys,

    Here's a really neat Luftschutz helmet. The decal is for IG Farben. Here is some info on the company, taken from Wikipedia:

    "IG Farben held the patent for the pesticide Zyklon B[20] (used in Holocaust gas chambers), and owned 42.2 percent (in shares) of Degesch (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Schädlingsbekämpfung) which manufactured it. IG Farben also had managers in Degesch's Managing Committee. Of the 24 directors of IG Farben indicted in the so-called IG Farben Trial (1947–1948) before a U.S. military tribunal at the subsequent Nuremberg Trials, 13 were sentenced to prison terms between one and eight years. Some of those indicted in the trial were subsequently made leaders of the post-war companies that split off from IG Farben, including those who were sentenced at Nuremberg."

    IMO a cool helmet with a unique tie to history.

    Very nice late war gladiator.
    IG was a huge part of the Germany economy pre and during the war.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Mo, I have only seen IG Farben decals that are green, blue, or red. They are usually on the side of the helmet as well, and if recollection serves, the decals are smaller than the one on this one. I would check this one out carefully to be sure. It may be right, but I would look it over before pulling the trigger. Jim G.
