Der Weg Zum Reich

Post by table » 30 Sep 2023 13:02

I have a copy of Der Weg Zum Reich (The Road to the Reich). This copy has a stamp that references Klagenfurt.

The book does not appear to have a publication date, however it does contain a map of the state of the war in September 1941, so we can assume it was either published late in 1941 or 1942. I have read it was provided to members of the SS and Waffen SS; however I have not seen this claim from any reliable source.

I'm looking for reliable sources to try and answer the following questions:

1 - Was this book published in 1941 or 1942?
2 - How was this book distributed?

Any other general background information on this book would be appreciated.

WorldCat indicates it was published in 1941. There seems also to have been another edition in 1942.

FYI a book of the same title attributed to the "Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiter-Partei. Schutzstaffel. Reichssicherheitshauptamt." was published in 1940

And yet another, though likely an entirely different book on NS education, was published in 1944. Seems to have been a popular title to use.
