The Vorwort or foreword of the book Horst Wessel Leben und Sterben (The Life and Death of Horst Wessel) explains the reason it was published: to always remember the sacrifices of Horst Wessel, the martyr of the National Socialist Freedom Movement. The book was meant to show the personality of Horst Wessel, clear and unadorned.
Author Erwin Reitmann explains Horst Wessel's temperament, his love for his fatherland, his idealism and resulting involvement in the early days of the Nazi movement in Berlin. The day and aftermath of his death are covered carefully and Reitmann even interviewed the doctor that operated on Horst Wessel in the hopes of saving his life.
The book contains many photos of Horst Wessel, his parents house on Jüdenstrasse, Horst Wessel with other members of the Wikingbund and the Berlin SA, the spot where he was murdered, his funeral and grave at the St. Nikolai Cemetery in Berlin covered with wreaths and swastika ribbons, the Standarte Horst Wessel, etc.
