Book: Widerstand

Post by at6 » 07 Oct 2021 00:45

Hello all.

I have a flea market find, a copy of "Widerstand. Tagebuch eines Sturmführer" (Resistance, Diary of a Sturnführer) by Herbert Raab, hardback, printed 1940.

The best part is that on the inside cover is the following stamp:

SA. der NSDAP. Sturm 4/91
Wien 141, Pragerstrasse 16a

The book covers 1933-38; unfortunately no fotos.

I have found little of the book on the internet.

Anyone know anything of it or the Sturm in Vienna?

Thanks!

Herbert Raab

Widerstand
- Tagebuch eines Sturmführers -

Deutscher Verlag für Jugend und Volk Gesellschaft, 1942 - 164 Seiten

Link to booklooker: https://www.booklooker.de/Bücher/Herber ... oKyg401ZZB

Probably only two editions, from 1940, and 1942 ?
Rare, not known to me personally before, thanks for your inquiry.

Now I remember why I fell away from this forum: I cannot figure out how to attach photos.

I have tried searching but cannot find the instructions.

Any guidance?

Thank you.

I am assuming 4/91 is a unit designation.

I think it may mean Sturm 4/Standarte 93.

I am not familiar with the organization of the SA, how big a Sturm was, how big a Standardarte was, did they vary from regions to regions, etc.

at6,

what I personally know about the SA's divisions is only reading, not real knowledge, unfortunately.

Sturmabteilung/SA: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sturmabteilung

The table attached here gives you a small overview, the screenshot is from the article above.
Perhaps a user from Austria can comment in more detail on your topic.
