  • Here’s a find from one of our last trips. It’s an MG34 AA (anti-aircraft) sight found on the Eastern Front. This sight could have been mounted on the original sight when firing at enemy aircraft. The sight was inside of a leather MG34 tool pouch. In the pouch (which was falling apart due to rot) were 2 spare bolts, a standard MG34 wrench and a toothbrush most likely used to spread oil on the mechanism of the weapon. These sights were made out of very thin iron to preserve weight. That means this one is totally rotten, sadly, so as soon as we touched it, it started falling apart. Still, this is quite a rare find and we’re very happy with it.

I’ll start sharing more of our finds from last trip from now on. There’s some stunning relics I wish to show you all so stay tuned.

  • This book was one of those random things I found while reading a thread about who-knows-what on #reddit. I had no idea that drugs were so prevalent in #germany at that time nor as widely used as the author claimed. Seems like there's always more to learn about #ww2. It's worth a read. http://ow.ly/8Zlj50uStKC

  • Today in 1925, Hitler publishes Mein Kampf.
Mein Kampf (My Struggle) is a 1925 autobiographical manifesto by Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler. The work describes the process his political ideology and future plans for Germany. Volume 1 of Mein Kampf was published in 1925 and Volume 2 in 1926. The book was edited firstly by Emil Maurice, then by Rudolf Hess.
Hitler began Mein Kampf while imprisoned for what he considered to be "political crimes" following his failed Putsch in Munich in November 1923. Although Hitler received many visitors initially, he soon devoted himself entirely to the book. As he continued, Hitler realized that it would have to be a two-volume work, with the first volume scheduled for release in early 1925. The governor of Landsberg noted at the time that "he [Hitler] hopes the book will run into many editions, thus enabling him to fulfill his financial obligations and to defray the expenses incurred at the time of his trial." After slow initial sales, the book was a best seller in Germany after Hitler's rise to power in 1933. After Hitler's death, copyright of Mein Kampf passed to the state government of Bavaria, which refused to allow any copying or printing of the book in Germany. In 2016, following the expiration of the copyright held by the Bavarian state government, Mein Kampf was republished in Germany for the first time since 1945. #munich #Berlin #Bavaria #germany #reichstag #brandenburg #russia #austria #poland #france #Sovietunion #belgium #romania #hungary #luftwaffe #italy #croatia #estonia #bojonegoro #sejarah #study #classic #Wehrmacht #military #vintage #museum #history #ww2

  • In late 1942 the Nazi propaganda department was preparing for the fall of Stalingrad. They planned as the last German victory, leaving some light before the war. Every newspaper in Germany and the occupied countries was given a list of ceremonial titles. They were waiting only for the green light. (1896-1958), a Russian targeted by the Bolsheviks fled from Russia to Norway after the revolution in 1942 Shortly after Germany declared war on the Soviet Union, the Nazi party joined a Nazi artist who made his talents available to the cause  Nazi poster of this is the most famous contribution.
 Text "Stalingrad was invade!" The dagger is a bayonet for the standard Fermach and is a highly recognizable image of the occupied Norwegian population. 50,000 copies were printed everywhere ready once the news appeared but by Christmas 1942 it became clear that the German army had been eliminated in January was a propaganda book  To explain the defeat as a "tactical" or "brave" retreat.
 Close to each original sticker was destroyed a few survived because printers scoffed at them as original souvenirs owned today by the Norwegian Army Museum. ·
