High-Quality leather shoes designed and made in Nazi Germany
This is a rare photo program printed in four languages for visitors to the Die Erste Internationale Handwerksausstellung (The First International Handicraft Exhibition) held in Berlin from 28 May through 10 July 1938. The 8-1/4 x 11-3/4 inch 28-page photo magazine is a special edition of Der Aufbau, the NSDAP DAF magazine for Trade and Crafts.

In German, English, Italian and French the magazine features special high-quality items that will be on display at The First International Handicraft Exhibition. A beautifully crafted dagger from Germany, violins from Cremona and silver from Florence, goldsmith work from England, gobelins hand forged iron work from France, porcelain and tiles from Dresden, carved wooden furniture from Transylvania, lacquered pieces from Japan, and much, much more.

Lots of the entries are shown in clear photos - a silver punch bole from Norway, carpets from Sweden, Croatian mat work, and stringed instruments, ceramics, sturdy leather shoes, and carved eagles and swastikas. 

We have never seen the dagger adorned with swastikas in any of the very expensive big deal reference books on Nazi daggers by the self-appointed experts in the field.

The magazine also contains tourist and public transportation information for Reichshauptstadt Berlin, as well as a map of the Handicraft Exhibition facility (Ausstellungsgelände am Funkturm), ticket prices, opening hours, etc. Quite a few official exhibition catalogs of the First International Handicraft Exhibition have survived, but not many of these practical 4-language magazines. A rare 70+ year old Nazi photo publication in very good, little used condition.
