As most collectors are aware, during the Third Reich the country of Germany was divided into 42 Gaue or administrative districts, each headed by a Gauleiter. Many don't know that there was a 43rd Gau - GERMANS LIVING ABROAD - under the watchful eye of the Auslands-Organisations der NSDAP or AO and its Gauleiter Ernst Wilhelm Bohle. The organization was created by Adolf Hitler to spread the Nazi gospel to and through foreign Germans and ethnic Germans living anywhere in the world outside Grossdeutschland, as well as Nazi Party members working at sea who spent more than 6 months per year away from Germany. Its headquarters was in the city of Stuttgart which was officially called die Stadt der Auslanddeutschen or "City of Germans from Abroad" during the Third Reich.
These two 1941 AO yearbooks contain many, many pages of excellent illustrated advertising from German firms such as Haenel air guns, Hohner harmonicas, Busch optical equipment, IG Farben, Mercedes-Benz, Henschel, Messerschmitt, Focke-Wulf, Bernstein, FAG, AEG, Continental tires, DWM, Zeiler, Auer, Lanz tractors, Ford Motor Company, Continental Typewriter, Exakta Camera, Hensoldt binoculars, Mauser, Auto-Union, Deutsches Wollen magazine, etc The advertisers are all carefully indexed.
Each year the Auslands-Organisation der NSDAP published two yearbooks: Volume I covering all aspects of the mission of the organization except ocean commerce, and Volume II covering matters concerning the German Merchant Navy.
