Der Stuermer, Voelkischer Beobachter
This is a rare opportunity to purchase wonderful reproductions of newspaper holder sticks, 29-½ inch (75 cm) long wooden sticks with a spring and a trigger virtually identical to the type used all over Germany to hold daily newspapers on a rack so that the public could read them and then return them to the rack for the use of the next customer. Newspaper publishers provided the sticks to café's, bars, hotels, doctor's offices and other public venues as a convenience and as advertising. They can be seen in many period photographs.

The illustration shown right is from the rare Third Reich book Du bist sofort im BildeThe text at the bottom says "four-fifth of Berlin newspapers were owned by Jews".

The white trigger on each stick that holds the spring wire that attaches the paper is stamped with overlapping SS runes in an octagon.

The two sticks shown in our photos are representative of the design and condition of these Zeitunghalter but because of the tiny quantity available we can't offer any choice beyond color (black or red). The newspapers shown in our photos are for reference only, they are not included! We never expect to get our hands on any more of these.
Du bist sofort im Bilde
We were lucky enough to buy a half dozen such film prop sticks recently and offer them for sale to people that know what they are (most people have never heard of one or seen an original). Each stick varies slightly, not in size, but in the layout and design applied to it. The sticks we bought include black ones labeled Der Stürmer and red ones labeled Völkischer Beobachter.

Have a look at original Nazi era newspapers for sale on USMBOOKS.com.
