Help please guys ....

This plaque is part of a small group that I have the chance of buying and I was wondering what it was for ... and who would have had it.

Roughly, it honors the work and recognizes the worker but I will defer, in a heartbeat, to a native speaker. wink.gif

Well, not being a native speaker either I'd still agree with Bob, although I might say respect the worker instead of recognise.

Christ knows what it was for though, being a socialist worker's party they may just have had them hanging on walls in offices.

One of the barracks I used to live in still has three massive iron (?) heads mounted on the front of one of the buildings, a soldier with tin hat flanked by what appears to be 2 metalworkers. Anyone else here know Moss Bank barracks in Bielefeld?

Could be "Honour the work, respect the worker". Achten means to attend also.Like Achtung means pay attention. I think its one of those words that does not translate well.

Chris B you are correct in your translation. That is what the plaque translates into.

Mike you can get some info about the German Labour Front here... http://www.answers.com/topic/german-labour-front
