Hitler Memorabilia Collection
Scope and Contents
This small collection consists of ephemera related to Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler. There are several periodicals and magazine clippings present, including two issues of Die Neue Weltbuhne and sections from the Munschner Illustrierte Presse from 1932-1933. Ephemera include: a poster entitled "Flugel Englands," produced in Germany and meant to mock the British Air Force; an invitation to Hitler's 49th birthday party; and about twenty postcards from Nazi Germany, mostly photographic portraits of Hitler that were previously the property of Dr. K. Haushoffer.
There is also a scrapbook filled with Nazi propaganda flyers, handbills, and broadsides, mostly dating from the Spring of 1938 and relating to the Anschluss (invasion of Austria). This scrapbook also holds several items in French, mostly relating to anti-communist activities and measures of protection against aerial bombardment.
