This is a very historic piece and it would make the perfect historical companion item for anyone that collects uniforms or memorabilia from the SA or political side of Nazi Germany!
This is a 9 x 11 inch beautifully printed edition of the lyrics of the Horst Wessel Lied (Die Fahne Hoch! Hold High the Flag! ) inside an oak-leaf garland under a bank of brilliant red swastika flags. At the bottom is a facsimile Horst Wessel autograph and the date of his death - 23 February 1930.
Horst Ludwig Wessel (born 9 September 1907, shown below in a period photo) was an ardent Nazi and joined the NSDAP in 1926 at the age of 19. He composed the extremely popular song Die Fahne Hoch! (Hold High the Flag!) which is to this day instantly identifiable with Hitler and his Third Reich. It was the virtual anthem of the Nazi Party and Nazi Germany.
Wessel was only 23 when he was murdered fighting communists in Berlin on 23 February 1930, and this song was renamed the Horst Wessel Lied (Horst Wessel Song) in his honor. It is still known by this name today.
This rare ORIGINAL THIRD REICH item was printed by LaBi-Verlag in Dresden with the permission of the legal heirs of Horst Wessel. In very good condition - has been folded once.
