IMPORTANT! Arbeiter Bauern und Soldaten (Workers, Farmers and Soldiers) is an extremely anti-Jewish book of the most direct sort imaginable, printed in an edition of only 1000 in 1940. It is a historical Third Reich document of a kind that is virtually impossible to acquire today anywhere. If you are easily upset by historical anti-Semitism, please read no further, and return to the previous USMBOOKS web page.
About Dr. Robert Ley:
Few people are aware of it, but Dr. Ley was the genius behind most of the organization of the Nazi Party. As Reichs Organization Leader (a cabinet level post) he was responsible for the publication of the Organisationsbuch der NSDAP which outlined how every Nazi paramilitary unit from the SS to the Hitler Youth was organized, what uniforms they wore and what their mission was. Dr. Robert Ley, Reichsorganisationsleiter and DAF Reichsleiter, was the man who established the Ordensburgen, made the Volkswagen and developed countless building projects throughout the Greater German Reich, from the time of his service in World War I through May 1945.
Der Deutsche Arbeitsfront (DAF or German Labor Front) was the principal Nazi organization under direct control Dr. Robert Ley. He was the organizer of the annual Reichsparteitag in Nürnberg. He published Der Schulungsbrief (The Party Directive) magazine and wrote part of the text of the Nazi Party member book Ich Kämpfe. Dr. Ley was one of the principal figures of the Nazi Party and an early NSDAP cabinet member in 1933. He was a World War I veteran, an old friend of Adolf Hitler and his degree was in the field of chemistry.
As Reichsleiter of the DAF Dr. Ley built the Ordensburg Castles at Vogelsang, Crössensee and Sonthofen. He built the towns and factories that produced everything from Volkswagens to tanks, and airplanes to ships and plywood. He oversaw every laborer that worked on the Reichsautobahn or elsewhere in Nazi Germany.
On 16 May 1945, Dr. Robert Ley was arrested at his villa in Berchtesgaden by American troops. On 25 October 1945, four days after being indicted at the Nürnberg War Crimes Trials, he committed suicide in his prison cell by hanging himself, thus cheating the Allies out of the chance to try the most anti-Semitic man in Germany. Much of the genius of Dr. Ley was never exposed as he was never put on trial or found responsible for the institutionalized anti-Semitism in Germany. Ley's work as Reichsorganisationsleiter was overshadowed by the high profile war work of Albert Speer who was not hung at Nürnberg, and thus survived the war to become his own best publicist.
ARBEITER, BAUERN UND SOLDATEN
Only 1000 examples of Arbeiter Bauern und Soldaten (Workers, Farmers and Soldiers) by Dr. Robert Ley were printed in 1940 by Verlag der Deutschen Arbeitsfront.
The rare, heavily illustrated 5-¾ x 8 inches, 38 page booklet contains photos by Reichsbildberichterstatter Professor Heinrich Hoffmann of Adolf Hitler in Berlin and in Warsaw, both Dr. Ley and Hitler with German factory workers, the Reichsparteitag in Nürnberg, Wehrmacht soldiers, Dr. Ley with Westwall workers, elderly Jews, etc.
The text of Arbeiter Bauern und Soldaten is very anti-Jewish, calling Jews parasites and anti-German agitators. It starts with the National Socialists overturning the Treaty of Versailles and getting Germany back on track after the difficulties of the 1920s. Order, hard work by average Germans, rearmament of the military and the leadership of Adolf Hitler is what turned the country into the powerful force it had become in 1940, according to Dr. Ley.
Few examples of Arbeiter Bauern und Soldaten have survived into the 21st century! It is very rare and this one is complete but in used condition. The spine is taped and the edges of the front and back cover are a bit of ragged.
