Rare Letter

We have a rare letter in our collection, informing a member of the public that the bomb they paid for had been dropped...

It was common practice for the public to pay for items needed during the war.

 

Nazi ' Mothers Cross' Award.

Many thanks to the doners of the Nazi "Mothers Cross" Award.

The medal was first awarded in 1939 to German mothers who gave birth to 3 to 9 + Reich babies.

The last award was in 1944. Thousands of mothers were given the award in an attempt to promote Aryan purity and increase the 'Master Race'.
