I have seen these arm bands around once in a blue moon. I know they are reproduction and have nothing to do with the Wilhelm Gustloff ship herself. (At least as far as I am aware). There have been many other items named for the man, a school, factory, etc. Does anyone know what this is in reference to?

Likely a SS commerative cuff title, similar to commerative CTs for Horst Wessel. Sounds plausable given Gustloff's relatively early (Swiss) NSDAP membership and subsequent murder.
