WWII German Death Card - Franz Baumgartner
LIMITED ITEM. SURPLUS - PREVIOUSLY OWNED. Once they are gone we may not get any more. Sold As Is - NON-REFUNDABLE.
Are you interested in WWII history, German History or Third Reich pictures, this is a great find for you. This authentic WW2 German death card was issued as a remembrance to Franz Baumgartner who was killed during the war. These types of cards are known in German as “Sterbebilder”. It shows a photograph of the deceased soldier, in uniform, and contains some personal information (I don’t know German). These cards were given as a prayer card at the soldier’s funeral; therefore the reverse often depicts religious themes. The German government decreed that a soldier’s unit was never listed and warned against listing a graphic cause of death. This card is a fantastic find and gives a face and a story to soldiers who are often forgotten in history. Great for anyone's collection.
Features of the Post Card:
- Condition: Excellent - color fantastic - very small damage to edges
- Size: 4" x 2.5"
NOTE: Over the years we have collected items with historical interest. The majority of our memorabilia is war related and we do not wish to offend anyone. We do not support or condone war but believe that historical items can remind us of our history, teach us about specific moments in time and hopefully prevent us from reliving any manmade horrific times in history. Any items we offer are intended for collectors of memorabilia and hopefully will be used for educational purposes. All of our collectables come from our own private collection via many X-service personnel and government auctions and have included Nazi party, Holocaust, Allgemeine and Waffen SS, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Kamikaze, Japanese, Australian, U.S., British items, etc. We should not forget our past but should endeavor to learn from its mistakes. It is our hope we never forget those that have died as a result of war. May god protect them.
