Georg Blumensaat

I think this person deserves a bit more attention concerning the songs that he wrote and that were played in the Third Reich in the movies or were simply recorded.

Here is a recording made by him when he was active at the Hochschule für Musik in Berlin:

Maybe someone could help with the year? As far as I know, it was made when he was still a student (he was a lecturer there as well, but in the late 1930s).

Later he was a HJ member and composed some music for the BDM as well:

If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Thanks for the information! Now it's finally clear which post in Posen he took after leaving the Hochschule in 1940.

Georg Blumensaat composed some marches:

Berliner Fahnenmarsch (nach dem Lied: Auf, hebt unsere Fahnen) 1938
Bamberger Fahnenmarsch (nach dem Lied: Heilige Fahne, heiliges Licht) 1938
Schweriner Fahnenmarsch (nach dem Lied: Ein junges Volk steht auf) 1938
Nürnberger Fahnenmarsch (nach dem Lied: Unter der Fahne schreiten wir) 1938

Which other marches did Georg Blumensaat compose?
