One of the rarer books in the series of 50 or so Heinrich Hoffmann photo books produced during the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler, this 64 page, 7-1/2 x 10-1/2 inch, softcover volume is called Hitler holt die Saar Heim (Hitler Returns the Saar to the German Homeland).
The forward was written by Joseph Bürckel, Gauleiter
of Saar und Ostmark
With more than 80 spectacular full-page and half-page photos, this book tells the story of the German demand and the Allied return of the Saarland portion of Germany which had been occupied by British and Italian troops since the end of World War I. Naturally, the occupation of the Saar was extremely unpopular with Hitler and the National Socialists who demanded its return.
Finally in 1935, Hitler had sufficiently frightened the British and French who opposed him, that they decided to let the residents vote on the issue. Overwhelmingly, the people of the Saar region decided they were German and that they had a right to be a part of Germany.
In one of the strangest twists of history, ten years later the victorious Allies of World War II again removed the Saar from Germany and gave it to France.
With the liberation of the Saar there were celebrations without end. There were eagles and swastikas and swastika banners everywhere.
The Wehrmacht, the SA and the SS all marched into Saarbrücken as did Hitler himself, and in official ceremonies the province was welcomed back to the German homeland.
