Christmas in the Third Reich

Post by Max Williams » 25 Nov 2004 15:43

With Christmas only a few weeks away, it might be interesting to see some photos of how the festive season was celebrated in the Third Reich. Here is a picture of Goebbels at a function where 500 gifts were given to Berlin children, 1936.

Thanks Max

Keeping the thread going....here's a couple of strange Xmas photos from another album of mine showing soldiers from a KM shore-based unit building a Xmas altar from kid's toys. My guess is that the soldiers made the toys and will probably give them away.
