This is a nice used example of the rare 9-1/2 x 12-1/4 inch, 52-page very heavily illustrated book on the first Leistungskampf der deutsche Betriebe or the first Competition between German Industrial Enterprises for the title of Model Companies. A pet program of Adolf Hitler and Hermann Göring, the competition within the 80,000 or so industrial companies in Germany first took place in 1936, and this book from 1937 was published to honor those companies that stood out among all German enterprises.
The contenders all had several things in common - their employees worked in clean, bright, modern enterprises and were educated and cared for in a very humane manner by the management. In addition to a complete listing the 30 enterprises that were recognized as winners by the German government as "Model Companies", the book explains the various aspects of the program and contains comments from many Gauleiters and Reichsstatthalters about the political implications and importance of the competition.
A few of the winners of the first National Socialist Musterbetrieb
competition were the Berliner Kindl Brewery in Berlin, Deutsche Milk Producers in Zwingenberg, the Paul Liepe & Co Car Repair Facility in Magdeburg, the Schmid Cocoa & Chocolate Company Bodeta in Oschersleben, the Teutoburger Margerin Factory in Hilter, the Julius Huneke Featherbed Factory in Osnabruck, the Berlin-Suhler Weapon & Automobile Company at the Wilhelm Gustloff Foundation
in Suhl, etc., etc.
Fascinating reading with splendid large photos and the original cover letter from the Reichsamtleiter der NSDAP that came with the book. Nice used condition.
