Hans Suren

Postby Knut Hamsun » 18 Dec 2004 17:34

Hallo,
I know that we discussed about Hans Suren in serveral threads before.
Now I`d like to start a new trial to complete the biographie of Hans Suren.
It would be very kind if anyone could help to find the birthdate, where Suren lived, if there are children alive and maybe if there are some historic films showing his gymnastics.
Suren published a few interesting books like:
"Mensch und Sonne" u. "Gymnastik der Deutschen" ...
I add some pictures to wake your interest!
Kind regards
Knut

Hans Surén

I have not taken the time to read the previous threads on this topic. I trust the following is not redundant.

Surén, Hans, deutscher Sportpädagoge und Oberstarbeitsführer des RAD, *10.6.1885 in Berlin, †25.5.1972 in Berlin. Am 1. Weltkrieg nahm er als Offizier teil und wurde 1918 als Major aus dem aktiven Dienst entlassen. Er widmete sich der sportlichen Ausbildung und entwickelte eigene Übungs- und Gymnastikformen. Seine Überlegungen fanden bei der Reichswehr bald Anklang, und so entwickelte er neue Vorschriften für das Heeresturnen und wurde Leiter der Heeressportschule in Wünsdorf. Er trat der NSDAP bei und wurde nach 1922 im Reichsarbeitsdienst Gauarbeitsführer und dann Inspekteur für Leibeserziehung des RAD. Er brachte es bis zum Oberstarbeitsführer des RAD. Veröffentlichungen unter anderen: 1923 »Atemgymnastik«, 1924 «Der Mensch und die Sonne» sowie zahlreiche Heeresvorschriften und Übungsanleitungen zum Sport in der Wehrmacht.

Dear Heraklit,
many thanks for your reply and the hint to the book. I will send some more pictures of Suren gymnastic. It`s interesting to inquire after this item - maybe Suren is the inventor of bodybuilding in our days?
With kind regards
Knut

These pictures look like they were taken by Leni Riefenstahl, is that correct ?

Hans Suren photos

Postby Knut Hamsun » 24 Dec 2004 17:18

Merry christmas HaEn,
I`m sorry but these pictures are not from Leni Riefenstahl. I took the photos from the Hans Surens book "Mensch und Sonne". As a little present I will add another picture.
With kind regards
Knut

If I´m not mistaken, the ancient Greeks did body-building.

It has nothing to do with this thread, but I remember that you were working on a television programme on Lebensborn. How has that progressed?

German gymnastic or Body Building

Postby Knut Hamsun » 08 Jan 2005 11:18

Dear Fubbik,
you are mostly right but I not sure if the exercises the ancient Greeks did could be described as body building. I will send you a photo of two exercises Hans Suren did and it`s interesting that these exercises are current in our days.
Our "Lebensborn-Projekt" :wink: isn`t finished until today but we did some interviews and got some rare pictures of the ceremonies in Lebensborn homes.
Kind regards
Knut
