This November 1937 Bayer (aspirin) company employee magazine is **SOLD**.
We will be happy to ship abroad at additional cost. Please inquire.
The big 7-1/4 x 9-1/2 inch, 80 page magazine Die Brücke (The Bridge) for November 1937 was published by well-known German industrial company and IG Farben subsidiary Bayer (makers of world famous Bayer aspirin) as a bridge between the company and its employees.
We don’t know how typical this issue of the magazine was because we have never seen another example. Parent company IG Farben was broken up by the Allies because of “war crimes” (the company ran Auschwitz Concentration Camp
) and naturally any material that reflected in a negative or Nazi manner on the company was quickly discarded.
This magazine has a picture on the cover of the Königsplatz in central Munich with the Führerbau or Hitler’s Administrative Office in the background and the two Ehrentempel that were the final resting places of the martyrs of the Nazi Putsch.
Inside there are photos of Hitler and Benito Mussolini
visiting the coffins in the Ehrentempel
, the Braunes Haus
, the Nazi monument at the Feldherrnhalle
, the House of German Art, Nürnberg and Reichsparteitag der Arbeit,
in Bavaria, an article about a trip through Berchtesgaden
and its surrounding area (Berchtesgadener Land) and an excellent article about Bayer as a company involved in the Spanish Civil War theater.
There is also employee news from around the world, as well as pictures of an outing to the Königsee near Berchtesgaden by the Munich office of Bayer (shown above).
A rare magazine in good used condition. The spine has been restapled.
