RAD-Lager Weihnachten 1936
Das Heim im Reichsarbeitsdienst
This is a very fine example of the 1937 Nazi photo book Das Heim im Reichsarbeitsdienst (The Home in the State Labor Service) by Oberarbeitsführer Wilhelm Schlaghecke. The purpose of this Nazi photo book explains Schlaghecke, was to show that the housing for people in the Reichsarbeitsdienst or State Labor Service were not spartan and cold, but practical, well thought out, nicely decorated with quality furniture and flowers, fitting well in any of the areas where they were built in Nazi Germany.

3. Reich Bauernmalerei RAD-Lager
Proud to be German
After a quote by Adolf Hitler about the importance of labor and community and a foreword by Reichsarbeitsfuehrer Konstantin Hierl, this 9-¼ x 11 inch, 78 page hardcover book has 80 photographs of the interior and exterior of homes of workers and their RAD leaders all over Germany. It shows how well they fit into the local landscape, decorations, eating quarters, gardens, bird houses, well-made furniture, leisure and educational facilities for the Arbeitsmänner, close-up of design and woodwork details.
The photos by Paul Wolff are fully indexed in the back. The index shows where they were taken, the location of the RAD facility and its leader. Interestingly, the aerial view photos have the notation that they were officially released by the Reichsluftfahrtministerium (RLM). The one color photo in this book is tipped-in.
This 79 year old hardcover example of Das Heim im Reichsarbeitsdienst is in very good, little used condition. The back of the title page has the round eagle and swastika stamp of the RAD Arbeit Dienstgruppe 290.  Nice tight spine, no odor.
