Holders of NSDAP Numbers 1 to 100

Post by rlh » 12 Sep 2002 04:06

I am interested in finding out who held the first 101 member numbers of the NSDAP - as would appear on the back of their Golden Party Badges. The best list I could compile is below. Could anyone verify and/or fill in any blanks?

1 Adolf Hitler
3 Max Amman
6 Franz Schwarz
8 Ulrich Graf
9 Wilhem Frick
12 Philipp Bouhler
15 Christian Weber
16 Rudolf Hess
17 Julius Streicher
34 Josef Bauer
35 Martin Mutschmann
37 Karl Fiehler
39 Emil Maurice
52 Anton Drexler
53 Julius Schreck
57 Gottfried Feder
77 Karl Holz
81 Julius Schaub
93 Otto von Kursell
101 Theo Schön

Thanks.

24 Eduard Dietl

PS: Had he not actually already been member of DAP before Hitler joined to then transform DAP into NSDAP? I am not sure though...

Was Hitler REALLY nr.1?
Is this actually documented?

You're right - as far as I remember I have always read that AH was Nr. 7 (I believe it might originally have been Nr. 55, but that it was changed ...).

Period Nazi references (e.g., Hans Volz's "Daten der Geschichte") usually state that Hitler joined the DAP in September 1919 and was given Number 7 (both as a member of the "Arbeiterzirkel" and of the DAP itself). His membership card from January 1, 1920, signed by Anton Drexler and Rudolf Schuessler, bears the number 7.

I think that after the Party was re-established in 1925 he would have taken No. 1.

Currently a German auction site is offering a Konrad Kujau fake Hitler Party book, which has for a number "555/7". I think the "555" was a bogus number issued by the DAP (in this embryonic stage of the Party, numbers were inflated to create the illusion of many more members than there actually were) Hitler initially received which was quickly replaced with "7", but this is conjecture on my part. Can anyone shed more light on this? Or on a possible/probable switch to Number 1 in 1925?

Party member No. 2 was Hermann Esser...

I should have looked this up before I did my last posting...the excellent book "Muenchen - Hauptstadt der Bewegung" includes a photo of Hitler's Party book from 1927 which bears the number 1. His entry date is given as March 25, 1925, which is consistent with the refoundation of the Party. So, from 1925 on he did have Party Number 1...

Here's the 1927 Party Book, from "Muenchen - Hauptstadt der Bewegung". It's a small image, but the Party Number is clearly visible (1), and the dates of entry (really, re-entry) and issue date are evident.

Interesting to note that Hitler didn't sign under his photo, as is normal with Party Books...

Well I guess that solves that question :)
Anyone has any more corrections of the already mentioned numbers?
