Hi Naxos,

Wow... you can really feel the pain of these troops kept for so long from their homeland. So many went in... so few returned. Must have been absolute agony! :o I've seen so many of the German troops in defeat in pics and documentary footage and this piece really captures that look and feeling quite well.

Never seen another one like it. Great piece!

Again thanks so much for sharing these. :beer:

Dan :cheers:

Stephen And this was the organization that came after Don's example. The good propaganda minister manuevered and absorbed some other organizatioms including Dons to create the RKK? After this point of integration Herr Rosenberg's influence was reduced? If memory serves. Nice pin by the way. I have been after one of these for a time with the nice attachment device. Were the later examples RZM marked would you know? I am not going to hold my breath but maybe another member would have an example with an RZM mark. Thank you for showing. Have a nice weekend. Robert

Robert,

I'm not really sure what the connection was between these groups was. Rosenberg's KfdK was combined with the Reichsbund deutsche B?hne (the National Association of German Theatres) forming the NS Kulturgemeinde (NSKG) in 1934. However, by this time the DAF had already established the Strength Through Joy movement & from what I understand Ley didn't get on with Rosenburg & as you correctly stated, he was edges out. In 1937 the NSKG was fully absorbed into the KdF. But how this connects with the Reichskulturkammer I don't know as the two were in existance at the same time, perhaps Stephen can help?

So in answer to you question the badge that followed the KfdK I showed earlier was this one for the NSKG...

[attachmentid=56274][attachmentid=56275]

In answer to your second question, I have never seen an RKK with an RZM mark.

Cheers

Don

Well tommorow turned out to be a week. Better late than never! gerd, your example may be 4127c. I am not sure how it is supposed to be marked.

Robert, thanks, nice piece. Mine is unmarked and on a long stickpin. Never seen a piece like it before. But its fine IMO.

The RKK was formed on Sept. 22, 1933 by "Reichsminister f?r Volksaufkl?rung und Propaganda" Joseph Goebbels. The Reichskulturkammer eventually consisted of 7 other specialist bodies:

Reichsschrifttumskammer - writers - (President: Hans Friedrich Blunck, later: Hanns Johst)

Reichsfilmkammer - film - (Presidents: Fritz Scheuermann, Oswald Lehnich, Carl Froelich)

Reichsmusikkammer music - (President from 1935: composer Richard Strauss, later: Peter Raabe)

Reichstheaterkammer - theatre - (President from 1935: Otto Laubinger, later: Rainer Schl?sser)

Reichspressekammer - journalists/press - (President: Max Amann)

Reichsrundfunkkammer - radio - (President: Horst Dre?ler-Andre?; discontinued as a separate Chamber in 1939)

Reichskammer der bildenden K?nste - paiting/sculpture (President: Adolf Ziegler)

The RKK continued through 1945, with a succession of Vice Presidents, including Walther Funk, Leopold Gutterer, Karl Hanke and Werner Naumann.

Its purpose was to be the national organization for the monitoring and control of German culture. It "approved" art and artists, and excluded the decadent, Jewish, etc, making it impossible for them to work or display their art. It was intimately involved in both the 1936 "Degenerate Art" exhibition and the 1937 Haus of German Art.

I don't know the specific connection with the NSKG - it wasn't one of the RKK bodies, but probably a supporter org. I'll look a little more.

I've never seen a RKK member stickpin marked any other way than by Deschler as in my badge. It was not officially an "NS Organizationen" - more of a state body - so shouldn't be RZM'd.

Don Nice! I wonder what the signifigance of the cross is above the stag? As always thanks for posting such seldom seen pieces. Robert :love: Stephen I am learning a lot today. Thank You. I don't know how others feel but this is my favorite time to be on this forum when we are all on at once. I t seems to happen only every other week or so. I am grateful.

Robert,

Here is a link that James Noble gave me ages ago that explains the significance of the cross & St Hubertus with the hunting fraternity. http://www.crystalbay.net/town/sthubertus.html I also agree with your comment re being online together, a rare event indeed.

Stephen,

Thanks for the info. I'd be interested to hear if you can turn up anything regarding a connection between these organisations. Robert raised an interesting question here that I'd never really thought about until now.

Cheers

Don

Don Thanks for the link about St. Hubertus. Now for those who imbibe, I ask if any German members could translate what is written around the outside edge of the front label of a Jagermeister bottle. I beleive it states something along the lines of always making a clean kill and an honorable kill. I am not positive though. Perhaps the bottles are labelled diferently in the US. I am not sure. I know this is slightly off-topic but still relates to the hunting tradition.

You guys are really something!!! I am at a loss for words by the beautiful pins that show up all the time. Congratulations to all of you for the knowledge and collections that y'all must have. I was going through He/Hu and checking off all the pins that I have in the book. I'm not done, but here are three that I haven't found. The backs are unmarked, so there is no need of a photo. More later.
